Does a Handwriting Simulation Plugin Exist?
I'm wondering if anyone knows of a plugin for Photoshop that enables a more hand-written look to text. Specifically what I am thinking of is a plugin that would allow a user to input a collection of characters for each letter. Then when typing text the plugin would randomly select characters from the appropriate letter collection for each letter input. For instance one might enter a set of 10 samples of one's handwriting of the letter "a" and then whenever you type the letter "a" it would choose randomly one of those sample hand-written characters.
I am using Photoshop to work on a comicbook, and I like the look of hand-lettering, however it is immensely time consuming to produce. A plugin such as I describe above would greatly speed up the process by producing text with sufficient variation in form to appear hand-written. It could also facilitate other potentially interesting effects.
Anyone aware of anything like this?
