Shuffle - Defines the how long a character is shuffled [in % of the time that is needed to fully shuffle and display a single character; until the next character is shown]. The default value is 100. Valid values range from 0 to 1000.
Line Break - Defines the how long it takes until the next lines is started and displayed [in s]. The default value is 1. Valid values range from 0 to 9999.
Page Break - Defines the how long it takes until the next page is started and displayed [in s]. The default value is 1. Valid values range from 0 to 9999.
Page Fade - Defines the how long it takes until the effect fades to the next page [in s] [as a crossfade over black]. The default value is 0. Valid values range from 0 to 9999.

 

Autostart - If activated, the effect will automatically start when the corresponding Storage Place is selected. It is activated by default.

Start - Force-starts the effect to start again from the beginning.

Font - Opens a new window and allows you to choose a specific font, font size, and other font settings. [Any color set up in this window will be ignored. Use the MADRIX color controls instead.]

Horizontal Alignment - Defines the horizontal alignment of characters [Left, Middle, Right] in relation to the Position. The default setting is Middle.

Vertical Alignment - Defines the vertical alignment of characters [Top, Middle, Bottom] in relation to the Position. The default setting is Middle.

Count - Defines the number of shuffles per letter. Valid values range from 1 to 100. The default value is 10.

Look-At Type - Allows you to choose from which side you want to look at the effect. This is mainly relevant for 3D. The default setting is Front. Learn more »Using Directions

Rotation - Allows you to rotate the strings [, 90°, 180°, 270°]. The default setting is 0°.

Filtering - Defines how input is processed and displayed. Mainly affects the visual outcome when the input is scaled up or down [e.g., when choosing a different mode for Stretching / Aspect Ratio]. Choose from 2 different modes. The default setting is None.
- None - Prioritizes processing speed over image quality.
- Linear - Prioritizes image quality over processing speed. This mode may affect performance.

Last-String Mode - Is only available when Loop Mode of the String Table is disabled. Defines what happens to the text once all characters have been shuffled. The default setting is Stay.

Stay - Leaves the strings on display.
Clear - Makes the strings disappear.
