To make the most of our animated typefaces you will need a companion tool, or script, as they are called. It makes it easy to customize the colors and other features. Go with the simple and free Animography Controller, or treat yourself to a smoother workflow with Font Manager.
What's the difference?
|Animography Controller||Font Manager|
|Parent multiple characters to a single controller|
|Drag and drop characters to create words Drag characters from the project panel to your timeline and manually arrange them into words.|
|Type to create words Type your words in the input field and they will be created for you at the correct size and position with adjustable kerning, tracking, leading and alignment.|
|Works with AEP-format With the AEP-format, the entire animated typeface is loaded into the project panel.|
|Works with JSX-format With the JSX-format, the animated typeface is stored in a folder outside of After Effects. When typing a word, only the characters you need will be imported. This keeps your After Effects projects light and nimble.|
