I developed some python script programs in FL.
the module is for TTF hinting and is like below.
1. auto-hinting in FL(differs from FL generating auto-Hinting)
2. copy & paste of FL hinting instructions(by searching similar pattern)
3. export FL hinting to VTT(except 'double link' instructions;;)
4. import VTT hinting to FL(convertable instructions only;;)
for Korean Hangul, module #1, #2 is very useful.
module #3, #4 is good for semi-autoHinted fonts for VTT.
especially #2 reduces working time by 50 ~ 70% of whole hinting work.(lots of Hangul designers agree with that.)
I think it is due to similarities of lots of consonants(elements) in hangul glyphs.
usually, hangul fonts have more than 2350(sometimes 11172) hangul glyphs.
But, I don't know whether it is useful for English or other fonts..
is it useful for usual hinting for FL hinting?
if so, is it worth selling?
how do you think??
