I am new to lightwave and i am trying to add fonts. I am running on a mac g4 the lightwave 6.5 modeler and i am following a tutorial on 3d text by mark lucio. Unfortunetly there is no font list to choose from and no add true type button either. how do i add fonts to the psfonts folder when one does not exist in the newtek directory; and how do i convert the mac fonts to ibm type 1 without spending money on conversion software?

Can anyone help please?

I think the earlier versions of Lightwave didn't accept True Type fonts. LW7.5 does.

If you know anyone with Adobe Illustrator you could get them to convert your text into an EPS file, though this is not a very practical solution for you.

I thought that LW6 came with some Type 1 fonts included.
