Amazing font software video
0

A couple of years ago I saw a video that I wish I would have bookmarked of a European design software ( I cant remember if it was a plug-in or an actual program). I'm sorry I do not remember much but I do recall the guy narrating the video was demonstrating on some lettering and with a slider he was able to maniplutae the lettering in seconds that would take hours (I think it added flourishes or something). It was amazing but I wish I could remember more of it. Does any of this ring a bell with anyone. I know its rather vague, sorry.

Are you thinking about the Arabic type manipulation Tasmeem for Indesign?

Honestly I am not sure. It was pretty cool whatever it was.

As I remember it came up on Typophile that there is a student at KABK who did a calligraphy program, so it imitates the motion of a broad pen. But I don't remember the name.

William, you’re thinking of Kalliculator, which AFAIK Fred has not released to other users. Charles might also be thinking of LivePen, a Windows-only pen modeling plugin for Illustrator that was purchased by FontLab and withdrawn from the market.

The description also brings to mind LetterModeller.

Perhaps you're thinking of http://this example of Inkscape integrating Spiro?
