Variable Typography Support

With the addition of Variable Type to Illustrator, I would love to see supported in After Effects. The ability to interpolate between the many variables available would be a huge benefit in motion design, streamlining the current process and saving eons of time from the current arduous method. It would open doors to some pretty amazing things.

This reminds me to the OpenType interface petition from 2014… And also to this presentation (“18 = 96,” 2018): https://youtu.be/tGL5VSGwG3s?t=1688

I would expect at least some reaction from the Adobe team. Dead silence still suprises me.

It's rather amazing that you can already animate variable fonts using CSS in any major web browser, but not in After Effects. In WEB browsers!

Do you know how long it takes to get new standards through the W3C? And the most head-slappingly obvious Adobe app to be the first candidate to animate variable fonts is After Effects.

But both InDesign and Illustrator get support first?

I'm guessing it will be all the mobile apps that get variable font support next.

For the love of God, at least give us a slider so we can typeset variable fonts in After Effects. At least give us a slider!!! I have fonts that I CAN'T EVEN USE in After Effects!

Until the day this gets added to AE, there's a third-party solution: https://aescripts.com/varifont/

As it stands now...AE does not recognize the font 'Source Sans Variable'. Would like for AE to be able to accept these types of fonts and utilize them in the program. Illustrator recognizes these fonts. I understand that I can do a text outline but if I have to change a word then I have to go back to illustrator and re-type the font and save it back out and re-import it. It would be better to be able to type the word in the variable font (ie Source Sans Variable).

I've made several typefaces for my work and always have to go back and make a NON variable version to cater to after effects it would be great to have support for them as it would make editing with different sizes so much easier. There's already great support for them in photoshop and illustrator, I don't see why it wouldn't be added to the program by now.

A lot of fonts nowadays have a wide range of glyphs or are variable fonts. These are features which we use in indesign and illustrator a lot when working with text and it would be a lot of help if we could use it directly on after effects without having to export illustrator assets for every single line of text.

Yes, please! Three years after. This is becoming a joke!
Why can third party scripters do it but not Adobe coders themselves?
