The Titler is very picky about fonts. Much more so than other Adobe programs, like PS, AI and InDesign. You likely have a corrupt font, or two, and it chokes Titler.
I use Extensis Font Doctor (stand-alone, or as part of Suitcase), to repair, or remove any corrupt fonts, if it cannot exact a repair.
You could Move half of your fonts to another folder (basically uninstalling them, but get them out of Windows). Test PP and Titler. If it works, then you can be fairly certain that your corrupt font(s) are in the half you removed. Reinstall half and test. If still OK, reinstall half of the remainder. So on, and so forth. This can take a lot of time, depending on the number of installed fonts.
You seem to have a handle on some possibilities and I'd start by Moving those, plus maybe a couple around them (in alphabetic order), and test. If all is well, then reinstall those around the suspect fonts. Test. If still OK, try the suspect fonts, and test.
You see why I first opt for Font Doctor?
how many fonts do you have? If it's more then around 800 it might be the cause.
Thank you Frederic and Hunt,
I will definitely get the Font Doctor!
I do not have nearly 800 fonts. The problem was one or more fonts that fall between Daunpenh and Earwig Factory. When that range is deleted PPro CS3 works perfectly. I was just curious why is the titler picky with otherwise perfectly usable Windows fonts?
Yes!!! Deja Vu, there are about 12 of them in that range and yes, I had installed Open Office.
Thank you...I'll try to bring the others back in and see if all is well.
Thank you so much!
You're welcome. :)
Wow Jeff, you saved Jimbo having to uninstall a bunch of fonts. Here I'm telling him to hide half, then half again, and you hit the evil font without even seening his machine - neat trick, and as if by magic. Do you do kid's birthdays? [Grin]
Do not recall hearing about a problem with Deja Vu, but that is great to know. Sounds like Sun needs to get to work on their fonts!
Good call, Deja Vu, I'll remember that one.
Didn't you say that once before...
>Didn't you say that once before..
I did. I found the font the hard way when CS3's titler crashed in my XP dual-boot partition - by using Hunt's half-again-as-much, over-and-over-again brute force method.
When I got my new system, I decided to install OpenOffice instead of MS Office. So the crashing titler was self-induced. :)
So, in your particular case, the font name was prophetic, eh?
>When I got my new system, I decided to install OpenOffice instead of MS Office.
Now Jeff. What the hell you installing office apps on an edit rig for?
Well we need something to create invoices with, don't we??? Hahahahah!!!
>So, in your particular case, the font name was prophetic, eh?
All over again. ;)

How else could I take real advantage of the new speech-to-text feature? :D
