Can anyone shed some light on why the Text Tool isn't drawing fonts correctly?

About the only thing you can do is after you done your object setting, go into Transform and stretch it out.

I think that's because Strata Text Tool only supports TrueType fonts, hence the distortion happening.

Many use to import from Illustrator or use Cinema 4D (or other 3D package) - If you have After Effects CC than you can use the Lite version of Cinema 4D

I'd have thought that if a font wasn't supported it wouldn't be showing in the font dropdown. It looks like the font is accessible it's just squashing it. I know it didn't used to do that.

Hi Caspian, if the font is activated from your system it will shows regardless of the host application.
You can do a test with different font formats in Strata and see the outcome.
The fonts is an old issue in Strata, you can also do a search on the forum to gather more info from previous posts.
Hope you'll find a suitable work around
