Few similar topics have been created already, but I have some additional questions.
I’m trying to create an handwritten typeface with Advanced Contextual Alternates. So far so good I read your tutorial and I managed to create all my alternate style
I scanned my typeface, exported all my assets as .png. (They’re big for scalability) I then named them .ss01, .ss02, and so on for the glyphs variations.
So far everything is fine. However I have some technical questions I can’t really answer myself:
Because I want to retain the texture within my typeface I don’t want to vectorise my scans. I did read few things about bitmap font but I don’t know if it’s relevant for me. (I also don’t understand it)
Is there a way I can simply export my typeface from glyphs with my png(s)? I know glyphs doesn’t support png at export, but is there a way around it?
I’m worried about loading time on web/mobile. I don’t want to create a type that weights 5mb. Am I doing it right? Or am I going to have an issue at the end?
