Scribe is an automated write-on typeface library for After Effects

Scribe carries 6 mono-line animation ready fonts that are a perfect pick when you need to animate hand written text. Select a desired font, enter font size, fill in the text and hit the button – you’ll get a shape layer that contains all the letters.

Quickly adjust the writing evolution by going to Effects tab and changing the “End” value. Even more, tweak the Stroke size to get the font look that suits you best. As these fonts are presented as shape paths, you can easily add other generators, like “Repeater”, “Gradient Fill”, “Offset Paths” and such.

Key points

  • Script library contains 6 fonts with ~500 animated glyphs in total,

  • Built with Shape Layers, meaning you can add additional generators to style the look of the font,

  • You can reorder the letters (or any part of the letter) to change animation order or fully customize it and make it your own design,

  • Animation capabilities are preserved even if you adjust the shape of characters.
