I keep getting this "Unable to create font" error when I have missing footage in the latest version of AE CC. Very annoying and won't go away.
Is this a known bug in the latest update (wasn't doing it previously) or do I have an incorrect setting somewhere? Is there a work around?
After Effects CC. OSX 10.8.4
Hi guys... thanks for your interest in this topic. Reistalled Verdana and Tahoma fonts and still no joy. Get the same "Unable to create font" error when generating a placeholder. Obviously having trouble generating a font for the placeholder. Up until now the font used for this placeholder was the first font (alphabetically) in my available fonts. Have Adobe changed something in the latest iteration of AECC.
Mmh, sounds odd... Works just fine on PC. If it's in any way related, it would mean that the italic version of the font is inaccessible. Do you use any font managers? On second thought it could also be that your Mac attempts to use anotehr font like Myriad or Helvetica, so check each and every font on your system...
Yeah... use Suitcase Fusion 4 15.0.6... but the basic fonts like Verdana and Tahoma are activated by Font Book. This has never been a problem before. Might get a few AE compadres to try and replicate it to check if it's a bug. What do you mean about the italic version?... and check my fonts for what exactly.... have hundreds of the suckers...
Ran font diagnostics (Font Doctor) which fixed a number of font issues and disabled the font manager... still the same problem...
You'd think that it would effect the CS6 version of AE in the same way would you not.
Just haven't done a full restart after the font diagnostics... will try that
thanks for that iestynx... didn't seem to work in the first instance, but all working as expected now... there was an upgrade with some bug fixes in there as well, so not entirely sure what went down, but as I say all good. thanks to all who took the time to answer.
I just updated AE CC this morning and I got the Unable to load font "^0" "Helvetica Neue" error. Didn't get that error until the update. Need to use AE ASAP. Thoughts?
EDIT: I'm not using any font management software, BTW. All other Adobe CC apps open fine on OSX 10.8.5
