I’m still new to hinting and I’d like to learn more about how to improve PS hinting. From several  sources  around the typo-sphere it seem the future is in CFF webfonts.
(on Windows) Whenever I look at Glyphs app made autohinted CFF webfonts (which I understand uses the Adobe autohinter) at text sizes (12pt to 24pt), I don’t like the results, especially in ClearType GDI.
The rhythm and proportions get really messed up and the stems and other areas in general are fuzzy. When there is no hinting, the rhythm and proportions are better but it’s illegible at text sizes due to being extremely fuzzy. One glaring issue is the cross bar of the e.
DirectWrite: a lot better but the problem of the e glyph persist.
How can I improve my PS hinting? Particularly, the proportion and spacing, and glyph details.
I’ve read the Glyphs tutorials but what it suggests that I can do is no better than what autohinting does. I’ve tried changing the stems and even used stemHist and setsnap.pl from the AFDKO with no better results. I looked at the results from FontLab and they’re only a little bit better with the proportion and spacing in smaller sizes.
Thanks in advance
