What is the type of font I can put in the fonts directory that the VT3 cg will work with?

I have a suite case Macitosh font used in the art work from a stage perfomance poster. I want the video documentary to have the look and feel of all the promotional material. It uses a type style called Voluta script how can I use it in the Toaster?

It is not very clear in the manual or I am not seing the forest through the trees. which in a way is poetic but not practcal

You need to extract the font from the mac resource/data fork structure and install it into Windows. I have only had to do this once before, and ended up having to track down a free converter program to do it. You might need another converter to get the resource/data files out of the suitcase though.

Thanks for your response

I have a program that made it work in Photoshop is that that's a different format than the CG fonts?

Shouldn't be. Just like Photoshop, CG uses the fonts that are installed in Windows XP.

Any truetype font that you have in your windows fon directory will show up in the VT CG.
