Really frustrating Motion and Text, second comming...!
on Apr 7, 2010 at 1:43:21 pm

Hi, this is the second time, I'm trying to to a project in Motion and not in AFX. But yet again motion dissapoints me. The first time it was the outline bug, that cuts of the outline... really bad, but this time around it is the displaying/rendering of international characters...

The funny part is: the same font, works in TextEdit, Keynote, Pages, and FCP with Boris text... but motion, cuts of the right most part of the letter Å.

sincerely Helge

Same thing happened to me. The most annoying part of it was to discover the bug at 2 AM in the morning, with the deadline set to 10 AM...
I tried turning on the monospace option in the Inspector, but the result was another bug! Not only the tracking went totally weird, but also the font changed!
Really frustrating. I had pitched the client with organic text animations made quickly. After Effects presets are not so compelling as Motion Behaviours, but work with International characters. Motion is totally useless for non-English text animations. :P

Motion it's back!

After searching more about this on the Internet, I've found two simple answers to this issue:

1) Resolve duplicated fonts using FontBook
2) Convert the font to TrueType using some utility like FontForge
