This is more an AE question than a templater question but i’m asking anyway:
Where using templater and Bot to automate the rendering of dynamic titels for news video’s.
After Effects seems to use a fallback font if a character has no glymp for the given character code
and it will keep on rendering in the fallback font for successive titels.
Is there anyway we can tell AE to stick to the chosen font fot succesive renders?

@rens Unfortunately AE’s API access to the character palette is extremely limited, so your best bet would be to create a pre-job script that copies your master AEP and opens the project in AE, to run Templater off of the copy instead of the master. This will leave your master always untouched. In the instance that a missing glyph breaks one project, it won’t break all of the subsequent projects. You could also try running an ExtendScript that updates the font on that layer on the post-update event every time, but I think that could be more problematic.
