Buster: terrible font anti-aliasing with examples

Postby tubus » 2019-11-18 02:36

Hello

First example
FREETYPE_PROPERTIES=truetype:interpreter-version=35 cff:no-stem-darkening=1 autofitter:warping=1
No hinting, no anti-aliasing
Image
Hinting full, no anti-aliasing
Image
Hinting full + anti-aliasing, no rgba
Image
Hinting full + anti-aliasing, rgba
Image


Now: FREETYPE_PROPERTIES=truetype:interpreter-version=38 cff:no-stem-darkening=1 autofitter:warping=1
No hinting, no anti-aliasing
Image
Hinting full, no anti-aliasing
Image
Hinting full + anti-aliasing, no rgba
Image
Hinting full + anti-aliasing, rgba
Image


Now: FREETYPE_PROPERTIES=truetype:interpreter-version=40 cff:no-stem-darkening=1 autofitter:warping=1
No hinting, no anti-aliasing
Image
Hinting full, no anti-aliasing
Image
Hinting full + anti-aliasing, no rgba
Image
Hinting full + anti-aliasing, rgba
Image

As you now can see, hinting work pretty great.
But anti-aliasing makes 38 and 40 unusable
May be I do not understand something or have done something wrong with tests, but it looks like developers haven't tested it at all or are they all blind?
Why release such an awful processing?

Also, "lcdfilter" doesn't change anything.

If you like your eyes - use type 35.
