OpenType for After Effects, please!

Hello!

I would like to work with OpenType in After Effects.

I have to import the character I want from Illustrator (and then create a shape for that character), and I don´t want that. I want to be able to work natively in AE.

 

Could you make that?

Thanks

OpenType is a font technology and AE supports it. What exactly can't you do in AE, what steps would you expect to be working in AE?

Yep,  completely understand the request. Well, I can makes some reasonable assumptions.

 

Curious - what sort of glyphs are you accessing via Illustrator which you are bringing into After Effects? Letters, symbols, ?

Is your workflow that you have to transform the Text into strokes while in Illustrator, then import into After Effects? You would like to keep it as live Text in After Effects?

Did you know that if you copy and paste text from Illustrator to After Effects many of the Open Type Features come with it? (two are stripped though).
