Multiple Master from single weight?

firstdegree's picture

Hello all.

I have a single semibold display font which I am looking to make a regular and light weight from. I am trying to do this by bringing the font into fontlab and make the other weights form the existing font using a multiple masters approach. Is this possible with just a single weight or will i need to make a light weight or hairline to provide a second master? Thanks in advance for any help.

You need to design the light weight and interpolate the regular from the light and semibold. Read the following:
• Fontlab Manual, Chapter 10.
• Designing Multiple Master Typefaces (PDF), available somewhere on
