[Macro] FIT (Follower In Time)

Inspired by this topic: https://www.steakunderwater.com/wesuckle ... f=16&t=430

I wanted to make a Macro that allows you to create a Follower animation setup and then be able to scale that animation in time based on the number of characters your text has. Handy if you want a Follower animation to always have the same duration no matter how many (or few) characters the text input has.

So when you use this tool (basically a custom Text+ node), and go into the Modifier tab, you'll see the familiar Follower interface, with a couple of parameters added.

Time Constraint Mode


Off (Edit): The follower animation timing will be unchanged. Use this mode to while editing the follower's animation settings as usual;
Min: The follower animation timing will be stretched when there are fewer characters than a certain limit;
Max: The follower animation timing will be compressed when there are more characters than a certain limit;
Both: A combination of the two modes above.

Time Expanding Character Amount (Min)


When the number of characters in the text field is lower than this value, the Follower's animation timing will be stretched.

Time Constraining Character Amount (Max)

When the number of characters in the text field is highter than this value, the Follower's animation timing will be compressed.
