Following a discussion in this
thread, I thought it would make sense to create a new thread on the topic of non-linear interpolation.
The principle is explained very nicely (I think) by Underware here
I'm personally interested in this, because I'm trying to create an animated version of a typeface I'm working on. Of course one could simply animate it in animation software, but HOI in a variable font would be a much more elegant and flexible solution. Obviously this is just one example use for HOI, the possibilities are endless.
So, is there any chance we will see HOI become part of the variable fonts spec? Are there any work-arounds or alternatives to animation? And what would be the key arguments for making HOI a reality?
Lots of questions, I know. Just throwing it out there.
