ScaleFast

by Loïc Sander

“This script’s mission is simple: keep stem widths consistent while you fiddle with proportions of a glyph. It manages that by trying to compensate for scale deformations through interpolation. To do that, it requires at least two masters (a regular and bold for instance). This way, you can easily produce scaled versions of existing glyph for any purpose you see fit, small capitals, superiors, extended or condensed styles, scaled up, down, etc. Any transformation you input can be saved as a preset for a later use. Presets are stored inside the ufo file of the first master font (see below), but you can use presets stored in any of the open fonts available when using ScaleFast.” This extension shares many features with Frederik’s ufoStretch.

Delorean: Interpolation Preview

by CJ Dunn

“–Start by opening two UFOs which are compatible for interpolation
–Use the slider or arrows to preview interpolation of a glyph at different values
–Delorean will update the preview live as you adjust the glyph’s outline in the originals
–The “generate” button in the bottom right will save an instance of the interpolated glyph to your CurrentFont()
–The glyph.name must exist in both fonts and the outlines must be compatible for interpolation.
–The status indicator in the bottom left corner turns red if either of these conditions aren’t met.”
