Is there a way to animate the Font used in the Font SOP (like frame 1 is Helvetica, Frame 2 is Courier, etc.)?

Thanks,

You can do it in hscript easy enough

set fonts = Helvetica-Bold Helvetica Courier
for f = 1 to 3
fcur $f
set font = `arg($fonts,$f-1)`
opparm font1 file ( $font )
end
The trick is finding just the right hammer for every screw

Thanks, your method seems interesting, but would it be an easy thing to get a list of all the Fonts to fill up your expression?

I ended up just creating a bunch of SOPs with different Fonts referencing the inputs of the first Font SOP and feeding them to a Switch SOP…
