Software or GL renderer with CoreGraphics fonts


#1

Hi Jules,

I’m currently using the CoreGraphics renderer on OSX but when using the latest Juce Demo I now see how slow it is compared to the software renderer and OpenGL one.
What I like very much though is the rendering of the Fonts especially for small ones in CG.

Would it be possible some day to use the system font rendering and use an alternate renderer ?

The uber mega combo being GL + CG fonts when GL support is finished :slight_smile:

Thanks,

Well, no, that’d be impossible… CG fonts can only be drawn into a CG context, and when it’s using GL or the SW renderer, there isn’t a context it could use.

I think what he’s asking for is LCD-optimized font rendering, no matter if done by CG or not.
