January 25, 2013 at 14:46 #5397 frederikKeymaster not sure I understand what you mean. Anyhow: The OT features and naming tables are compiled by FDK and merged back in a ttf file with the converted glyph with cubic curves. January 25, 2013 at 15:43 #5398 Jens K.Participant Interesting question … Do you use your own routines for outline conversion to quadratic beziers, or are there existing libraries perhaps in the FDK? January 25, 2013 at 16:38 #5399 frederikKeymaster In RoboFont there are two possible ways to convert outlines: (see Spline Conversion http://doc.robofont.com/documentation/workspace/font-info/robofont/) One is 100% accurate to the outlines, which mean points will be added the other one is 100% accurate to the amounts of points, but the changes to the curve is minor, handy for interpolation afterwards January 28, 2013 at 10:17 #5401 BasParticipant Sorry. I meant: what is RF’s path for generating .ttf fonts? For .otf fonts the path is something simple like: RF UFO > ufo2dfk > FDK generates .otf For .ttf fonts the path is something like: RF UFO > ??? (eg. RF-python script + ttLib > FDK > RF-python script + ttLib > .ttf ?) January 28, 2013 at 11:28 #5402 frederikKeymaster the ttf “path”: RF UFO > internal ttf compiler on top of ufo2fdk > glyph data .ttf > fdk for some tables > .ttf Author Posts Viewing 6 posts - 1 through 6 (of 6 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
