I’m developing a variable typeface built around 3 axis:
I started working with 4 masters:
And everything worked pretty much as expected.
I then added a 5th master to have control on the stems’ thickness in heavy weights for the sans typeface
As you can see from the video below, whenever all 3 axis work at the same time, the result is quite messy, and it breaks completely on the endpoint of the interpolation bar.
Looking at the position of the masters in the design space, it seems quite extreme.
Why do I get values such as -100% black, -100% LightSerif and 200% BlackSerif? What am I missing?
All instances are within the design space but there is something funny going on and I can’t figure out what is happening.
Hope it’s not too much of a newbie question. Cheers!
