Highlighting text in After Effects
The process for creating animated highlight lines in After Effects is usually pretty boring, first you have to create the shape layer, then create the line in the right place, perhaps adding animation to it if you need it. Then if you want to change the text you've highlighted you need to duplicate the text layer and position it in the right place... all of which you then have to repeat for every word or phrase you want to highlight.
That's why the Highlight script was created, to automate this entire process and make your life much easier! So, if you're wondering how to highlight text in After Effects, look no further than the highlight script.

So if you're looking for a quick way to underline text in Afer Effects, highlight has you covered.
