- In this movie, I'll show you how I created…this specific type treatment using a font called Bangla MN.…Again, this is an Indo-Chinese font…designed to provide a Bengali character set…even though it offers Latin characters as well.…I'm using it as opposed to one of the other MN fonts…because it appears first in your Font Menu…in alphabetical order but, and I want to stress this,…only on the Mac.…It was licensed by this guy, Muthu Nedumaran, hence the MN,…exclusively to Apple, so it doesn't even exist on Windows.…
So you might naturally wonder how it is…that I'm showing it off on the PC.…And the answer is that I converted Bangla MN…to a universally compatible Open Type Font…using a program called TypeTool from FontLab.…But, because digital fonts are considered to be software,…and therefore protected by copyright law,…I can't give this font to you.…So, again, if you use a Mac, you can follow along,…no problem; if If you use Windows,…you may prefer to skip to the next movie,…although, then again, you might find this…
