A couple weeks ago GLJ featured Quick In-Out Animator by Tapio Haaja, Tap5a.  This plugin automatically resizes text backgrounds based on text boundaries. It’s easy to use and fully customizable! Quick and useful for subtitles, titles and lower 3rds. Complete list of features and download link below.
