FAQ

What is Animography?
Animography.net is a webshop and typefoundry that provides motion designers, video-editors and others in the field of the moving image with animated typefaces. These animated typefaces are easy to use, customizable and scalable without any loss of quality.

Who is behind Animography?
Animography is founded and curated by Calango, a small motion graphics studio in Amsterdam. Find out more at calango.nl 

So how does it work?
It's really easy, but kind of hard to explain in just a few sentences. Check out the tutorials section for the basics.

What about compatibility?
All our animated typefaces are made for Adobe After Effects. They are compatible with versions CS6 and up in all languages. And of course, all animated typefaces are fully compatible with Font Manager.

Are your animated typefaces pre-rendered?
Nope! Our animated typefaces are After Effects files with all the paths, keyframes and expressions exposed. This gives you total freedom, and no quality loss. And since our typefaces are (mostly) created using shape-layers, everything is infinetly scalable.

What are JSX-typefaces?
JSX-typefaces are a fantastic new light-weight format for animated typefaces that seamlessly integrate with Font Manager. In a nutshell, we use a modified version of compCode to convert an animated typeface into a library of JSX-files that Font Manager can read. In contrary to the classic setup with the .aep-format, the animated typeface no longer exists within your After Effects project, but is stored externally in the scripts folder of After Effects. Much like a regular font file.
The big advantage is that you have a dropdown list with all your animated typefaces, at hand. And there is no dead weight in your After Effects Project, slowing things down.

What's (not) included in the license?
In a nutshell; you can use our typefaces in personal and commercial work. No strings attached. You're not allowed to redistribute (derivative work of) our typefaces. For more information, please read our End User License Agreement.

Can I sell my typeface on Animography.net?
