Where is this 'parchment' font that you use in the first video? I use Adobe After Effects cs6, and was following along with your tutorial quite nicely....until I got to the font. I looked under character, as you did, but in the list of fonts, 'parchment' is quite obviously missing. I was really enjoying your tutorial thus far, but am rather disappointed now, as it seems without this font, I will be unable to continue with this tutorial. =( Any assistance or help on this issue would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
