Import kerning from a font. How can I do that?

I work on a typeface, so far I've drawn the extreme font (ultra thin, light and Ultra) in roman and italic. I've also done the spacing, feature and kerning. I know that I can import the feature from a font to an other and that works well. What I tried is to use my kerning from my light italic to become my basic one for my ultra thin and ultra. Can I do that, if so how?

Thanks in advance.

Is my question is too complex?

In FontLab, the Metrics panel can save/open AFM files for standard kerning. For class-based kerning, the menu in the Classes panel can copy classes between fonts; then just copy your kern feature in the OT panel.

Thanks, I will try this.
