Text becomes boxes when using template in FCP
on Oct 25, 2011 at 12:09:15 pm

HI there,

I have created a lower third template in Motion 4, but when I try and use the template in FCP, the text is just boxes, not letters-one box per letter I think). I have checked and the font is installed on the system, so I don't think that is the problem.
What can I do?
many thanks

Make sure the font is installed at the Computer level, not just the User level in Fontbook. Also check to see if it's corrupted - you can validate your fonts in FontBook as well.

Did you try simply dragging it to the word Computer in FontBook?

Just double click on the Font. It will open up Font Book and all you have to do is click on the "Install Font" button.
