Movie credits in French

Apr 15, 2012 at 05:12

I would like to have a TTF like this one:

but, in French.

Thanks for any help!

Merci pour vos réponses.

Je crois m'avoir mal exprimé en mettant trop peu de détails sur ce que je recherche.

Pour les suggestions de Bee et Univers 39, oui, c'est une police pareil. Sauf que pour faire un poster de film avec les crédits, les "titres" sont souvent sur 2 lignes et les "noms" sur une ligne. Comme sur cette image:

Avec la police http://www.dafont.com/fr/universal-accreditation.font , si je veux mettre:

Directed
by

suivi de

Steven Spielberg


Je tapperais ceci:

k STEVEN SPIELBERG

"k" minuscule étant "DIRECTED BY" sur 2 lignes.


J'espère que vous comprenez ce que je veux dire. Je n'ai pas Illustrator et je ne me voyais pas créer ma police moi-même. Je cherche donc une police pareille, mais en français.

Steel Tongs would do the trick perfectly but I think (though my french is awful) XeresDan is asking for a French Language equivalent.
XeresDan. What are you using to create your poster (Clearly not Illustrator)?

Yes you're right, sorry

@pilaster
Yes that is exactly what XeresDan is asking for. a french version of the titles as a font. So, for one he/she has to do the translation him/herself. For two, he/she has to create the the font him/herself as nobody knows how he/she wants the titles to appear on screen.
Mutatus mutandus, a DIY job.

I would like to have to font ready to use. I'm not good at all to create fonts...


Apr 15, 2012 at 19:28

Sorry, suggestions are close, but still not in French. Please look at my reference carefully (http://www.dafont.com/fr/universal-accreditation.font) and read my answers...


Apr 15, 2012 at 19:29

SteelTongs is NOT the right identified font.


Apr 15, 2012 at 19:31

Ay...DIY Job indeed. What I'm trying to establish though, is, if there's a way (such as the Warichu trick in Illustrator I linked to above) that we can make it easier to set manually for XeresDan. If we know what they're using to set the type in (Indesign, word, open office, whatever) there may be a similar tweak we can find to help out.

Translation...

Thank you for your answers.

I think I'm misunderstood here, because I didn't telle details enough.

For suggestions like Bee, Univers 39, and SteelTongs, yes, it's a similar font. But, I want to make credit on a movie poster with credits, "titles" are on 2 lines, and names bigger on 1 line. See this image.

With this fony http://www.dafont.com/fr/universal-accreditation.font , if I want:

Directed
by

followed by

Steven Spielberg


I would type:

k STEVEN SPIELBERG

"k" is "DIRECTED BY" on 2 lines.


I hope you now understand what I'm searching for. I don't have Illustrator and I don't want to create the font by myself. I'm searching for a similar font, in French.


Apr 15, 2012 at 19:36

With this font, if I'd type: "K", it would write "K". If I'd type "k", it would write "DIRECTED BY" on 2 lines...


Apr 15, 2012 at 19:39

XeresDan. What application are you using to typing in?

I want to use it in Word for example and in my movie edition program which uses TTF. It would be just faster to make changes on credits on a poster for example.

O...K. No font exists that will do the job as koeiekat has wisely pointed out, but you do have options for doing it yourself.
I don't use Word but, according to the MS office website, it supports Warichu (2lines leading a single line) type setting, just like the video link I gave above.
Do a little digging around (in MS Word Help) and you should be able to achieve what your after by typing your credits as a single line, then exploiting the Warichu formatting options MS Office makes claim to.

Or, you could download the 30 day trial version of Adobe Illustrator and follow Deke's tutorial video I linked to earlier
http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/tdrc/index.cfm?product=illustrator

IMHO downloading the demo and following the vid are the best option.
From Illustrator you can export the set credits as a format you can drop into Word.
