I just saw noticed the release of Source Serif Pro
and wondered about how foundries make things look good on screen at text sizes. I assume you can only get this quality with hand-tuned Truetype hinting. I'm only used to working in Glyphs, which does PS autohints.
If I'm careful about my zones and metrics in Glyphs, what would be a good workflow to get manually-tuned webfonts?
Do I export a UFO and hint in some other standalone hinting program? Or do I generate OTFs, convert it through font squirrel, and use something to fine-tune the output? Perhaps Glyphs is just not the tool to start in for this kind of work?
A little confused on the process.
