    Still needs further experimenting, but I think I finally found a robust and stable workaround.

    Need to think about a good way to automatically adjust kerning/spacing.

    Filip, this looks amazing! One idea which goes into the head right after seeing this – how are you planning to control the index of font on words to be used?

    Not sure Tomas.

    I’m hearing around how people would actually need to use this, so all suggestions are welcome.

    In my case, I need to create a mogrt for subtitles and have selected words be in italics or bold.

    For the italic part I can get by with a skew animator but the real deal would be much better!

    You can get super super close with the skew animator + rotation animator + position animator. For italics I honestly don’t think you need the real thing. But bold is a different story of course.

    Filip, thats exactly the thing – people wants this but they are not aware of limitations once its there, ha!

    Anyways, I would guess it could be done in a few ways, very similar like text animators works:
    1. By char index
    2. By word
    3. By line

    Starting with only two styles to begin with, and then seeing how to make use out of it? Just an idea!

    Fake italics suck! Always use the real fonts.
