Has anyone else had an Illustrator font display incorrectly in After Effects?
It seems the kerning information is not translating.
It is a tried and tested and otherwise working font.
There are no duplicates or conflicts.
Is there a set of troubleshooting steps I can take?
I have cleaned my font cache with Onyx.
It may be a bug.
We have tried stripping all formatting out of text prior to pasting into illustrator.
There is a lot of text and converting it all to outlines is not really feasible
Thanks again for your brain cells Rick.
That's what I had to do as ran out of time to solve it.
shift apple O dear
There seems to be something related to it involving text exported from Powerpoint, via INDesign and/or Iluustrator, that only effects After Efects.
So we stripped it all out with text edit but still seeing weirdness.
I just thought there may have been something noticed in the translation processes.
AICS5 to AECS6 say.
Like the Photo filter update in AE that you have to rebuild.
Or a weird thing I had where I had to add an extra frame if I was rendering a comp in CS6 (maybe a new 29.97 calculation) and remove it again in CS5.
It is one of those things you don't notice unless you are looking for it, unless you actually care about typography!
I am just pretending it is '98 and converting it all to Outlines.
At least it doesn't take a week to render anymore.
