    Titler+ missing Fonts

    Help! I installed te new version of Media Composer 2020.4 last night and have an issue with the new titler+ tool. 

    When selecting fonts, the UI shows me the main font, but not the different weights.  By that I mean the clients font has over 10 different varieties like light, thin, regular, heavy, bold, etc.  I cannot access them. How do I get them.  Where are they? 

    Please help!

    Re: Titler+ missing Fonts

    Hi I'm having the same issues as your reported to Avid with Media Composer 2019.12 with Avid Titler +.

     

    I'm using House Industries General Collection font library and can't choose any other fonts from that collection. Only the top font shows. Avid support replied Feb 2020 that they are still working on the issue.

     

    Seems it works on Microsoft Window's but not OSX. Which fonts are not working for you?

    Here  is the issue number MCCET-3435 OPEN TYPE font from GENERAL COLLECTION

    Thanks,

    I've checked the same font collection on Windows 10. Inside of the Avid Titler+ each font for House General Collection is shown in the list as separate names. So under Windows it's working perfect, however on OSX it's not showing each font name, just the top folder of General Collection in Avid Titler+ with the first font in the list Beachhouse.

    Re: Titler+ missing Fonts

    Avid are still working on this issue after 7 months with no estimated fix. So does that happen with all font families and their subsequent font weights/style like Regular, Bold, Italic etc?

    The fonts work on a Windows PC choosing different fronts from the families but on OSX Mac no option to select past the first font in the family in Avid Titler+.

    It's very unfortunate, and it's making me not eager to renew my yearly perpetual license subscription come next renewal, and just moving to Adobe Premiere Pro.
