New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I am interested in optical scaling: Aside from MultipleMaster, are there any techniques for developing fonts finely tuned to point size?
Related, given two fonts of one general design, each tuned to a particular and specific point size, how does one determine whether the two fonts are, indeed, appropriate at their respective sizes? I am aware that the differences between, e.g., 8pt and 12 pt are not linear. Are there any guides or tools besides direct observation?
In particular, I would be interested in how I can use either Studio5 or FontMaster (I have the light version) to pull this off.
Is anyone working on parametric or other font development tool that does this? The open source FontForge has a "metafont" utility that tries to do something in this regard, but it's still quite rudimentary.
I really don't want to spend countless hours mastering the MM method if there is a better alternative...
Best to all
