Importing New Fonts

Hey guys,

I went to best buy today and bought a little CD with over 3000 fonts on it (I needed a Celtic font for a commercial I'm doing), but after I loaded it..my word, paint, etc. seems to be fine, automatically using the new fonts on the computer...but vegas 6.0 doesn't. It "displays" them in the drop down menu, but when selected, doesn't change the look of a font.

Is there some "trigger" or option I have to select in order to use all my new fonts within Vegas?

Thanks guys.

If they're not TTF fonts, they won't show up.
Pixelation is entirely a different discussion.
Using fonts with serifs on them is just begging for trouble in the video world.
Double your text resolution to resolve most any font problems.
