    Hi,

    I'm using Media Composer 2019.9

    I want to use a font which installed in my PC and work well With Avid Title Tool but 

    is not listed in SubCap fonts.

    How can I fix that and make all my fonts avalble in SubCap as well?

    Thanks

    Yair

    Maybe it only takes TrueType fonts?

    Symphony 2018.12.10, Blackmagic Intensity Pro 11.1 (unsatisfactory in full res UHD though for client monitor), WIN 10 on 2500Mbps M.2 SSD, Nvidia Quadro K4200, Asus X99-A Mobo, i7 5820K 4.0 GHz Hex core mildly overclocked CPU, 32Gb 2800 Mhz RAM, WD Black 8Tb RAID10 array @ 450Mbs

    This font was visible and working fine in SubCap in another Media Composer 2018 version in a post production house I work with.

    So the problem is something with my PC, maybe because of the 2019.9 I use. With the new 2019.11, I also have the same problem.

    On Windows 10 - there are two Font folder diretories. On Windows 7 there is only one.

    Windows 7

    C:Windows\Fonts

    Windows 10

    C:Windows\Fonts

    C:\Users\YOUR MACHINE USERNAME\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Fonts - Right click the font in the bottom directory and select "install for all users".

    Reboot Media Composer and the font will now be available in SubCap. 

    The reason Windows 10 has two Fonts folder directories is because Office and Windows have issues. I'm not sure why Media Composer simply doesn't utilise the original Fonts folder like Title Tool does.

    Thanks

    What a brilliant fix, thanks so much for providing this info. I had like 90 fonts that I just assumed would never work in Avid and now they do.
