Will there be variable font support for After Effects?
Don't hold your breath! It's a minor miracle that people can do what they currently do with typefaces in AE.
It's not impossible, but quite unlikely. As Dave pointed out, it took them more than a decade to even allow ligatures and other advanced OpenType stuff, so don't hold your breath indeed.
Same request here, I cant find After Effects software in the dropdown menu of "New Feature Request" page yo linked here.
I’m also looking for the same feature, or any way of animating variable typefaces! Most people I’ve talked to have suggested i animate it in CSS and even then its hard to export it as a movie file! if anyone has since discovered any plug ins/ workarounds to animating variable typefaces I’d love to hear your suggestions...
