Convert png file to svg file in batch

We know that if you want to export the .ttf font in glyphs
We need to put the svg file of charater
I now have a lot of characters in the png file.
I want to convert them into svg files using batch.
This problem has been bothering me for a long time
Would you like to have any good ideas?
P.S A large number of pictures are not suitable for manual production

You do not need to convert. You can make an sbix font (see the tutorial) and add and sbix to SVG parameter to the instance. Makes an SVG on the fly.

Ok, I will study it.
But what if I want to do it by conversion?

What do you like to convert? To outlines?

right
I want to turn out the outline of the character in order to make the font.
for example this is a Chinese character “事” with .PNG file
I want to convert it to svg to make .ttf or .otf font and need batch production

In fact, I don’t understand this tutorial.
I don’t know what I should do.

This is not an outline. This is a bitmap image.

  • Do you want vector outlines? Then you need to vectorize. Consider the Trace plug-in (you can find it in Window > Plugin Manager.

  • Do you want to keep the bitmap image? Follow the steps of the tutorial. If there is something you do not understand, feel free to ask a question. If there is something unclear in the tutorial, please tell me what you do not understand, so I can improve the wording.

I installed the vectorize Plugin and how to use it ?

I follow the tutorial and have the error when I export OTF to make a sbix font

Finally, I want to confirm one thing. In the end, can I complete convert PNG to svg in batches through scripts or glyphs API and export OTF or TTF font?

What exactly do you want to have in the end? SVG Vectors or SVG bitmaps?

Bitmaps: no need to convert anything. Just set up the sbix and export.

Vectors: place the image in glyphs (drag it into the glyph) and run the plug-in. Or convert in AI as you did and copy and paste the vectors into Glyphs.

Can you send me the file that caused the error?
Please send me the .glyphs file to support (at) (this website without www). I will have a look.

I may not be clear before.
I have a lot of “character” png files
I want to make it a font file.

But inserting the png file does not export the font file.
Seems to insert svg file or sbix you said
So turning into svg is just a process
I don’t care if it is a bitmap or a vector
As long as I can achieve my goal

In addition, I just exported the font file to do sbix (I don’t know if it is right)
But is it a long time, is this normal?

Thank you

Can you send me (or upload here) one or two of these PNGs?

The resolution may be a problem.

How long is the export time?

Exporting time has been three hours
Is this normal?
Then I noticed that glyphs have a very low CPU utilization…

Can you send me the files?

sure
Is the picture material needed?

I think I need the images, too. Send them in a Direct Message.

I sent it to you.
thanks

I exported the file you send me and it tool two or three seconds.

What!
What happened to me here?
