Hi does anyone know of a way to have an outline surrounding text in VFX edit? (Font border)

The reason for it is that such texts are better readable if placed over animations or movies with huge swings in brightness. And I kinda need that

I'll add scripting tag as well as maybe that's needed to get it

  • $\begingroup$ Well I found a way to solve it. Its not perfect but for now I can live with it. Add glow effect with blend mode exclusion $\endgroup$ – user3800527 Jun 1 at 6:51

Using glow to create an outline with this add-on: https://gist.github.com/tin2tin/b8e7fb9156b5c5d54fdab5d808dc7c1f Change the blur width to change the outline width and change the multiply value to change opacity. Offset the position of the outline to make a drop shadow.
