Hi Robiwan, did you use JUCE’s font rendering, because the fonts you used look extremely good-looking and I’m just not getting the same results in my app ?


#6

You’re quite correct. The PME uses AGG V2.4 (http://www.antigrain.com) for font rendering. And I think the main reason it looks better is that AGG always renders with 256 alpha levels, whereas JUCE paths (and thus fonts) are rendered with 4 alpha levels (EdgeTable::Oversampling_4times). Since AGG can be a bit of a pain to use, the AGG2D wrapper nicely abstracts away the gory parts (http://www.novadsp.com/agg2d/agg2d-2.4.zip)

/R
Edit: According to jules (in the other thread), fonts rendered with paths should yield better results.

… and AGG uses FreeType as it seems. So did you change JUCE so it uses FreeType/AGG or do you just render your text “over the top” via new functions that interface to AGG?


#8

To change JUCE we felt was too time consuming so we went for the latter option.
