    Is there a bug that causes AI type to incorrectly kern in AE (CS5.5, OSX.7.5)

    tristansummers Level 1

      Hello.

      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

          Screenshots? I have not seen this at all, but then it's been a very long time since I have been on 7.5 and CS5.5.

           

          You could always convert your text layers to outlines.

            Thanks again for your brain cells Rick.

            That's what I had to do as ran out of time to solve it.

            There seems to be something related to it involving text exported from Powerpoint, via INDesign and/or Iluustrator, that only effects After Efects.

            Very odd.

            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.
