Dive into the details of variable font creation with FontLab VI in this extended session with Adam and Yuri. The FontLab team will discuss how to set up masters and axes, including intermediate glyph masters, how to efficiently use the FontLab VI user interface to navigate between masters, how to coordinate design changes across masters and prepare incompatible masters for interpolation. Adam and Yuri will also talk about some lessons that the FontLab team has learned in the five months since the public release of FontLab VI, and about the immediate plans for the app. There will also be a questions-and-answers session focused on, but not limited to, the variable fonts capabilities of FontLab VI.
