PR: FontLab announces font converter
FontLab has released TransType Pro 3, a font converter with OpenType support. It is available for both Mac and Windows.
According to the press release, the product “is the first consumer product on the market that allows seamless conversion to and from the OpenType format.” It can convert PostScript Type 1 (including multiple master fonts), TrueType, and OpenType fonts on both platforms, and will also convert “legacy-encoded Cyrillic, Greek, Central European, phonetic and other specialty fonts into the new universal Unicode encoding.” Type 1 and TT GX/ATT fonts converted into OpenType will gain some OT features (ligatures or fractions).
The software may also repair some forms of font corruption. The program can be used for batch conversions, and it includes support for the Python scripting language.
TransType Pro costs $179 (upgrades, $87), and runs on MS Windows 98, ME, 2000, and XP; and is a Carbon app that will run on Max OS 9 and OS X. Limited-function demos are available at the FontLab web site. There is also additional product information there.
