Extensis Suitcase Fusion is a font management tool with cloud access that works in After Effects and other software on both Macs and Windows. This video is about the plug-in for Adobe After Effects that lets you auto-activate fonts without having to hunt them down. This will speed up your workflow, especially if you’re working on multiple projects at once or on archived projects.

Extensis Suitcase Fusion 7 Reviews
Suitcase Fusion 7 has been getting some great reviews. Here is a couple.
The Bottom Line:
Suitcase Fusion 7 is an important upgrade if you use two computers and need the same fonts on both, or if you use Adobe After Effects to create animated type effects. In addition, Extensis’ new Suitcase TeamSync is an affordable alternative for teams who want to share the same font library but can’t justify the cost or maintenance of Extensis’ Universal Type Server product.
The Graphic Mac
Just when I thought Extensis ran out of ideas for new features, they go and drop TypeSync on me. Awesome. I’ve been using for a few weeks now on my iMac running OS X 10.11.5 (beta) and my MacBook Pro running OS X 10.11.4 with no issues. The Fusion app runs faster than ever before and the auto-activation plugins work smoothly, too.
If you need a great font manager, and you have multiple Macs or work with a team of other designers you need to share fonts with, I highly recommend Suitcase Fusion 7.
Review: Review: Suitcase 7
With version 7, TypeSync allows you to sync your fonts on two machines (a single license allows for two installations). In my testing, this feature lives up to its name by keeping multiple font libraries and any font sets in them in sync.
