Need to add a font into Boris 3D/Final Cut Pro 7

Hey everyone,

I have a client with a custom font that I need to get into Boris 3D/Final Cut Pro 7. Only problem is, it's a .AFM (Adobe). How can I convert it to a .TTF? And where exactly do I put it? User/me/Library/Fonts?

Thanks,

Heath

Have you tried using FontBook to convert it or, Suitcase Fusion? Outside of that the only TTF converters I've seen are Windows-only.

I'll check it out, thanks Robert. After that, am I right in putting the custom font into Users/Me/Library/Fonts?

Thanks again,

Heath

Actually Mac OS automatically installs the font in the fontbook for you when you double-click it (unless Snow Leopard has changed that function) similar to a screen-saver, it simply gets copied where it needs to be.
