If there was ONE feature request I want in Cinema 4D, it’s to have the ability to kern type properly. Right now, If I want properly kerned typography, I have to set my letters in Illustrator, Export as version 8 and merge that file into my scene. Then, if there is a change in the type or the setting, I have to repeat the process. Very tedious. Luckily, I found a work around using Mograph and the plain effector that works OK in a pinch. Not a perfect solution, but useful if you only have a word or two to kern.
Quick side note. If you have never learned to kern type properly, be sure to give it a try. Typography is such a huge part of Motion Design, so it’s important to learn how to make your type more readable and beautiful.
