I hope I don't misunderstand your question.

No font can do this. It's more a video or Javascript that animates any existing / embedded font.

1. See here many (funny) examples: http://jquery-plugins.net/tag/text-effect

2. Or did you wish something like this animation made with After Effects?

I don't know a way to do this on a website without a video, because of the individually drawn paths for each letter.

Anyway, the Type & Typography forum is the wrong place.

Thank you for the reply. I think I was trying to get it to fade more than

anything. Can you help with this I'm working in cc2017.
