I’ve groused in the past about how Final Cut’s font handling is broken, only allowing you to select its choice of typefaces, and screwing up weights for OpenType fonts, amongst others.

Here’s a solution: some hacked-up titling tools that allow you to type the full font name of your choice. It’s a work-around, really, but anything that allows me to lob a quick caption up in a font I actually choose, rather than one FCP picks for me, is welcome.
