Python Scripting - The Text Tool add-on


Darkfall writes:

In this video, we will be creating a new add-on I call, the Text Tool Add-on.

I wanted to create an add-on that would help speed up our workflow when adding text within blender.
We will need a Panel for our button and a Popup Dialog Box to execute the operation (and we have covered this in previous tutorials).

We can add pretty much anything to our Dialog box, and for the Text Tool add-on I want to be able to enter Some Custom Text, Set the Scale,Set the Orientation, Set the Alignment, add a Boolean and if the Boolean is True; I want the text to be extruded.

Then in the next video we can take a look at tidying up the Dialog box Layout and make it look much better. I also have some Ideas for Animated effects. So if you think that sounds good, let us know in the comments below.

If you would like to download the Text Tool add-on, be sure to follow the link in our blog!I hope you find this video helpful and if you have any comments or suggestions for things you would like to see in future versions, be sure to let us know!.
