I built this typeface to investigate and demonstrate the properties of stereoscopic workflow for part of my talk at the HOWdesign conference. I used Maxon's Cinema 4D and Adobe's After Effects and used the stereoscopic camera tools in both of those applications. I also used a couple of plugins (Eyedesyn's TextEdgeFX & GreyScaleGorrila's Transform) to build my animations. I tried to design to two different constraints: making all of my glyphs to a 16x9 grid, and to take advantage of the "horizon line edge exception" rule of stereoscopic outlined in my talk.

With the latest release of After Effects comes a great new feature that will sound like a blessing for all motion graphics designers! After Effects can read .c4d files natively! As a result setting up your comps just became a little bit easier! And not only that but you can render the c4d file straight from After Effects!
It won't replace Cinema 4d as a standalone renderer but for small and simple projects it's easy and fast to setup and go!
