Chinese Symbol Font?

RyanJP's picture

Im doing a motion graphics piece with type cycling behind some old Kung-Fu movie footage and I really want to be able to type in some Chinese characters in Illustrator or After Effects without having to enable a foreign language on Windows. Yes, PC's suck, whatever. Does anyone know of a (free) symbol font I could use? It doesn't really matter if it looks cheesy, within reason of course.

If cut and paste doesn't work, then the problem may relate to the Adobe apps.

For Illustrator, you should be able to 'type' the characters by selecting them from the Glyph palette with a Chinese font selected. Not sure about AE.
