Text-Osterone is an extremely easy program to generate eye-popping Flash animated text effects in seconds! Works with your installed True Type and Postscript fonts. Text-Osterone is easy to use and is great for websites and presentations.

Key Advantages Over Other Text Effects Programs

  • Text-Osterone is the only text effects program to output Macromedia Flash (.fla) files! Other programs output .swf files requiring you to use ActionScript to load an external file containing the text effect. With Text-Osterone, you can open and use the text effect directly in Flash 5/MX/MX2004.
  • Text-Osterone allows you to output several text effects into a single file! Other programs just allow you to output a single effect per file. This results in a lot of wasted disk space because font information can be duplicated in each effect file if the same font is used in each effect. But Text-Osterone will only store the minimum amount of font information needed and will not duplicate unnecessary font information, resulting in smaller file sizes!
  • Text-Osterone automatically adjusts effects to the desired frame rate. Other programs design their effects for a specific frame rate giving you no control over the actual speed of the text effects. With Text-Osterone, you specify the number of seconds the effect should take to animate and the frame rate you want it to display at.
