Converting outlines

Left to right: The “g” in Omnes in the original PostScript outline; converted to TrueType with FontForge; and converted by FontLab with both regular and with increased resolution.

Tim Ahrens, writing for Typekit:

Producing the best conversion can mean choosing software based on the design of the font (or even a particular glyph); often, for the best results, it’s necessary to cobble together glyphs from different editors, or even to manually clean up the outlines to remove superfluous control points.
