I know about pxel fonts, and they are geat. But, they cost. And free pixel fonts miss some characters i need (polish chars).
Is there any other way to get super sharp text on your swf? Exporting text from photoshop dont work. Neither Illustrator. Does anybody knowany other way to get atleast slighty sharp texts in flash?
I’ll appreciate any help.
If you havn’t yet; switching off ‘anti-aliasing’ helps you gain some sharpness, although the edges might end up looking jagged..
Oh i havent mention im not using right now pixel fonts.
Im working with “Code Light” ( http://fontfabric.com/code-free-font-3/ ), trying to get text sharp at 16 px, which is pretty small as for this font.
As flash have no stroke option, to make my text bolder and sharper at once, im trying to get it with png, from illustrator, but its still little blurry…
Any ideas, what should i do?
Make sure the textfield(s)’ x and y locations are placed on full pixels, e.g.
x = 123 and
y = 456 rather than
x = 123.4 and
y = 456.3. Also, if you don’t intend to animate the textfields (e.g. scale / rotate / move them at runtime) make sure you set their anti-alias to Anti-alias for readability.
Hope this helps
