How do I optimize the font with antialiasing and hinting? Do you know some tutorial?

Hello people

In that time I told you I had a problem with the font family Titillium, that had still aliasing and pixellation, because of hinting and rasterization absence, did you remember?

Then I was building the fonts at FontForge 2.0 from Ubuntu 10.10. When I finished one font. I installed it on Windows 7 and Ubuntu fonts folders. I opened the font for viewing it, but I got surprised and disappointed with that... because my font is still aliasing and pixelatted. I didn't find how I better and optimize the antialiasing, hinting and rasterization of the fonts at FontForge and, other fonts editores... I couldn't try to correct the deffects of the letters and better the high quality.

If you don't understand me, remember of Verdana that has excellent antialiasing, hinting and rasterization.

Bit I don't know how, how will I make for bettering the fony? Do you know some tutorial which can help me?

"Optimize" means improve and enhace.

Maybe Frode Frank know it, because Frode Frank explained very well about ClearType, hinting and antialiasing.

Thank you!

Kevin

There’s a lot of documentation about hinting scattered around Microsoft.com; most of it is about VTT, Microsoft’s (Windows-only) hinting tool. If you have lots and lots of free time you could probably teach yourself to hint fonts and get good at it, but that also goes for things like being a professional pianist.

If you don't understand me, remember of Verdana that has excellent antialiasing, hinting and rasterization.

Keep in mind that Verdana is a killer engineering product created by masters of the craft to look great on screen.
