Font looks different in Ventuz compare to photoshop

Post by Jodaine Moore » 29 Jun 2018, 13:33

I have converted an OTF font to TTF online. The font works in terms of loading/previewing but the font looks different in Ventuz compare to other software such as Photoshop, After Effects, Word. especial the apostrophe.

I have tried changing the machine configuration but the font still looks wrong.

Thanks,
J

happens to me all the time when converting OTF to TTF. Try a different converter, sometimes that helps.

I'm not a Font designer but for my eye the second one looks like a completely different font.
Could you try this font in Ventuz 5 (just request a PLE if you do not have a license).
For V5 we rewrote the complete font loading and layouting mechanism.

Cheers
Karol

I currently don't have ventuz 5, but I have tried the fonts in Ventuz 6 and I am still getting the same outcome. Just to be sure I have copied the font directly from the ventuz 6 font folder and tried it in photoshop on another pc and it works.

Oh, apologies in Ventuz 6 I have found this error message "17:38 29/06/2018 Error : Font: Font Table parsing failed for Chelsea Basis: Wrong stream reader position for Lookup List.

Just throwing my five cents in here as well. Why did you convert the original OTF font to a TTF? I am having issues sometimes with online converters as well - just as lerou. Do the OTF files not work in Ventuz?

My experience with Ventuz and OTF is not good. I often get render errors. Also some fonts did not work on other OS versions. I think it was something like "works on Win10" and then the VPR on Win7 had no fonts at all. I always tell my clients to deliver TTF or I won't be responsible for the results :)
