Does anyone know if this is possible? I have the Chartwell font family, which uses stylistic alternates to create charts and graphs of various kinds in Photoshop, and I would like to be able to use it inAE and animate the source text in order to animate the graphs. But... I can't find a way to use SAs in AE.

Or is there a workaround, perhaps, that I'm not smart enough to figure out? ;)

Thanks all,

Sorry, but AE & PS handle typefaces quite differently.
You have much more power in text creation in Photoshop, but the text is static.
You have a wealth of text animation options in AE, but a limited set of text creation options.
