I just ran into pretty bad rasterization issues with [[http://www.daltonmaag.com/browse/fonts/dama/effra|Effra medium]]:
Top line is a preview from their website (14pt). Bottom line is the output from the Inkscape. I have never seen anything as ugly come out of Inkscape rasterizer and frankly I have no idea what to do about it.
Rasterizing using Windows' native rasterizer (i.e. with Windows Paint) yields slightly thinner appearance, but produces very heavy pixelation.
I sent Dalton-Maag an email, but just wanted to ask here as well for any guidance.
Any thoughts or comments ?
PS. By the way, this is just another argument in favor of try-then-buy licensing model. No online preview tool could've caught this issue. I bought into their rasterization of the font and now I am forced to deal with the consequences. Needless to say it's not what I had in mind.
