I am trying to make an SVG font that has transparency. I have the most recent full version of glyphs. Im not sure if I am completely grasping the concepts in this tutorial https://glyphsapp.com/tutorials/creating-an-apple-color-font
and I am hoping someone can clear things up for me.
First of all if I want to create an SVG font with bitmap images, I save the file in photoshop as a .TIFF and then place it in glyphs but there is a giant box of empty space around the glyph that I am worried is going to mess up the font. Is that ok or is there someway to fix that?
Next question is how will a font with bitmap images look at different sizes? its going to be extremely pixelated at larger sizes right? What is the best size to make the font in the beginning to avoid that. I know that this tutorial talks about having multiple files on different layers all at different pixels is that necessary to get the font to work or will it create a slow font by having so many files placed in it? And also the amount of time to do that seems impracticable.
Also what is the difference between a vector svg and a bitmap svg? how do I make a vector svg?
