How do I import fonts for use in "Add Text?"

Recommended Posts

So I'm wanting to use some artsy fonts in my videos and snapshots (I use the snapshot feature in VideoPad to create the thumbnails for my videos) to help give my work some unique spaz and flavor. But once I've downloaded the new fonts, I have no idea how to import them for use in Video Pad!

Are there any tutorials on how to do that?

There are loads of free fonts available on the web. e.g.


Download the font required. Usually zipped, so unzip to a suitable folder to obtain the ttf file (True Type Font)

To install the TrueType font in Windows:
  1. Click on Start, Select, Settings and click on Control Panel.
  2. Click on Fonts, click on File in the main tool bar and select Install New Font.
  3. Select the folder where the font is located.
  4. The fonts will appear; select the desired font that is titled TrueType and click on OK.

Once installed they should appear in the font list in VP

Note that (at least in my Vista PC) the browse program is in rather an old Windows format and I couldn't find the font folder or desktop!). So unzip the file and moveĀ  it onto the desktop (or a suitable folder) Open the fonts folder from the Control panel and drag the font to it.
