Working on a twitter type graphic and I’m looking for the Apple Color Emoji font in Ae so I can type out certain Emojis. The font list does not include the Apple Color Emoji font even though its active in Font Book. Does anyone know how I can get it to show up and use it in Ae. Also unusable in photoshop and can’t use a graphic pic as its a toolkit to allow client to change text easily.
I have tried to do this as well, but was unable to. The emoji typeface is vector, and does scale. You can scale it with a word processor. It does behave a little differently from normal fonts though. I ended up taking high resolution screenshots of the emoji I needed, and animated by hand. One interesting thing, if you paste an emoji into an After Effects text layer, the emoji isn’t visible in the composition no matter what font you choose (I tried all my unicode fonts), but it is visible in the text of the layer name on the timeline.
You can now use AfterEmoji to bring emojis to After Effects. Choose from over 3500 emojis from Twitter’s open-source Twemoji library and insert them directly into your project as fully editable, native After Effects shape layers. Get it here: https://aescripts.com/afteremoji/
