Kerning

Hi,

here is something I worked on today. Any additional features needed?

Hi Arndt!

It would be great when we were able to create multiple markers with one Kerning
object only! Dynamic descriptions FTW!

Best,
Niklas

Hi Arndt, Nice!

Needed features regarding kerning, not really,
but it would be great if you could throw in baseline shift,
and while you're at it, why not additional options like caps +small caps,
superscript, subscript… :-D

That would make Cinema's text object über cool!

Hi Niklas,

you can already come back to any Kerning position and edit it. Or what else do you mean by "multiple markers"?

Awesome!!!

If you're going for the 'uber text tool', I'd throw in some para formatting like Tabs/Indents/Lists and Hanging Punctuation into the list too.

Are we able to access glyphs/ligatures of a typeface from within C4d?

Oh boy. That is great. Baseline shift is a must. When will it be out?

Wouldn't it be better to have it as a tag instead? So that it's added as another label/tab in the list of regular text options (no switching of objects to set your text and cleaner object manager)?
Ideally, the plugin should add the function by default to the regular text spline in a new tab, whitout having to add anything.

Oh I didn't see that the offset is kept when chainging the index of the marker. That's fine!
What I was imagining, is to have dynamic AM attributes depending on the number of "added markers", therefore, I press an "add marker" button, and I specify it's index and offset. But that might come really hard organize for many markers.

The possibility to offset the segment not only the baseline direction would be great IMHO, too.

Thank you all for your input so far. I just uploaded the plugin to my webshop. You can get it there for free: www.rodenburg-verlag.de

The download link is posted within the description text of the webshop. There is also a demonstration video available within our YouTube channel.
