Client giving me these specs:
80pt
Helvetica Nueue Regular

How do I match that text size in Vegas? Many thanks. This cross platform stuff is gonna drive me nuts.

Use 15pt in Vegas Pro.

Many thanks, John. Is there a conversion formula?

Not that I know of.

I assumed you didn't have Photoshop to check for yourself and knowing that Helvetica Nueue Regular is a Mac font, I created a 1920x1080 Photoshop file on my Mac and added an 80pt Helvetica Nueue Regular text to it. Then found Helvetica Nueue for Windows and installed it and then I dropped that into a 1920x1080 Vegas Pro project, created the same text string with Helvetica Nueue and resized it until the two matched in dimensions.

15 pt was a perfect match. ;-)

It's probably important to point out that this measurement is based on the HD TV 1920x1080 preset in Photoshop. If they used some other DPI then the point sizes will not match.
