Variable Interpolation Confusion

Hello everyone.

I have a question regarding the interpolation between masters and brace layers.
I have a setup with 2 masters (Ultralight & Extrablack), for some Glyphs I have 2 brace layers, which kick in at the weight of the Thin & Regular (since the contrast in some areas were too strong without the brace layers). My question now is: Does for example the Light weight still get interpolation from the 2 masters (Ultralight & Extrablack) or the 2 brace layers (Thin & Regular)?

As always thanks a lot!

So you have four “masters” in a row: Ultralight, Thin, Regular, Extrablack. and the Light instance is between Thin and Regular? Then it should be interrelated between those two.

Thanks for the fast response Georg!

To clarify my setup, here are some screenshots.

As stated before, I only use Brace Layers for certain Glyphs (a,b,d,g, etc.).
And yes the Light Instance is between Thing & Regular.


I wonder why you need two brace layers. One should be enough.
And don’t put the “5” in the braces. And you don’t need the name. So it should just be {172} and {420}
