To preface, I'm working in Motion 4 and FCP 7. I've just completed a :30 kinetic typography spot. It looks great in Motion, however, when I bring the project into FCP to add v/o, music and sfx, Final Cut does something strange. After rendering, I noticed in two specific instances that my has been changed. Where in Motion I had used a scripty flourishy font in a couple of sections, FCP has now substituted something very helvetica-like. Can someone please tell me why this happens and what I can do to correct it?

Thank you. Yes, I somehow found the font I'd used squirrelled away in an iWorks folder. I opened Font Book, checked 'computer' imported all the fonts in the iWorks folder into Font Book, and now Final Cut sees that font. Why Motion could see it in the first place is still a mystery, however, all is well now. Much appreciated.
