PJ and Supreme 4 components Version 2, text effect plugins used directly in .fla files (Macromedia Flash MX / Flash MX Professional 2004 / Flash 8). Version 2 contains over over 800 predefined text effect variations.

PJ and S4 can be used by users of any skill-level, offering use from basic drag&drop to stage to advanced use like text loaded sidewide from database. All effects in Version 2 have more customization parameters. Several new features and options are implemented, including five different effect start-directions, basic text alignment, automatic positioning on stage and dynamic input. In the upgrade, of the 125+ effect templates most effects contain a list of predefined variations.

All of them now offer a quick preview to see settings and avoid having to play long .fla timelines to see the result. For experienced users custom modifications can quickly be done, like adding a simple bevel, creating sequential triggering of effects, use of attachMovie to dynamically place effects at runtime and loading text by PHP from database for site-wide use in thousands of pages tree-deep independent.

Version 2 also contains a unique feature, up till today never offered in any text effect solution. Single text effects can be customized to override font color and font type for specific letters, making it possible to mix any font and color for any range of characters in a single text effect.

PJ and Supreme4 have been widely used in Flash websites, corporate intranets, CD-ROMs, Web-TV and Film&Video-titling projects. Version 2 is an all-in text-effect solution for anybody working with MacroMedia Flash, it's easy to start with, shows instant result, does not require importing or loading external files, and for advanced usage is only restricted to the limits of MM Flash itself. PJ and Supreme4 Components are available for Windows and Macintosh.
