freetype_load_target = "Normal"

Since: 20210314-114017-04b7cedd

Configures the hinting and (potentially) the rendering mode used with the freetype rasterizer. The following values are possible:

  • "Normal" - This corresponds to the default hinting algorithm, optimized for standard gray-level rendering. This is the default setting.
  • "Light" - A lighter hinting algorithm for non-monochrome modes. Many generated glyphs are more fuzzy but better resemble its original shape. A bit like rendering on Mac OS X.
  • "Mono" - Strong hinting algorithm that should only be used for monochrome output. The result is probably unpleasant if the glyph is rendered in non-monochrome modes.
  • "HorizontalLcd" - A subpixel-rendering variant of Normal optimized for horizontally decimated LCD displays.

See also freetype_render_target and freetype_load_flags for more advanced flags that can be primarily used to influence font hinting.
