LIVE FONT plug ins / programs
on Dec 2, 2010 at 5:19:33 pm

Hi, I wanted to ask you if anyone here knew of any program (plug ins or separate applications) that have additional live fonts? I am particularly interested in the "script" fonts that show as they are actually being written. I an advertisement recently and the script handwriting was appearing on the screen as it was actually being written, then and there, by Benjamin Franklin. After it was written, a beautiful underline appeared. That type of effect is exactly what I am looking for. If you know of any company, resource, program, google searchword etc... I would be very grateful.

Sorry Bob, I'm not sure if this will be of any help, but here are links to the two companies that I know of who make Live Fonts.

I don't know if you can take LiveType LiveFonts and place them in Motion, I've never tried, but here is a site that has live fonts for livetype: http://www.livetypecentral.com/

Best of luck.

LiveFonts work better in Motion than they do in LiveType and are available directly in the Library assuming you have them installed.

Mark, I believe he is looking for additional LiveFonts, not the ones included in the Motion library. Can LiveFonts built by a 3rd party for LiveType be used in Motion?

Sorry, I knew he was looking for 3rd party LiveFonts but didn't realize your question was specific to those - but I should have known better ;-)

Answer is I haven't tried it but I don't know why they wouldn't...

If they can then http://www.livetypecentral.com/ seems to have the most options for what you are looking for.
