Contextual alternate font options for live type in AE CC

Recommended Posts

Hi all, it's been forever since I posted anything, but I'm back doing a little animating and curious if anyone knows if there is a way to maintain the "contextual alternates" open type option for live text in AE CC?

 

it's kind of like using ligatures, but it just alternates the font options. It's an option in photoshop.

 

Also, did AE CC do away with converting psd layers to live text? Ugh. I'm so freakin' out of the loop.

 

any help is appreciated.

thanks,

fb

Create the text you want in Photoshop, import into AE. When the text layer is in the timeline, highlight it and choose layer->convert to editable text. I found that sometimes it doesnt work for certain types, though.

Aroma, I thought of that first but I don't see this option in Creative Cloud. Unless I'm totally missing it.
