The next version of BluffTitler will support bitmap fonts!

The utility we're currenlty working on to create bitmap alphabets is going to be called Alphabix. With Alphabix you can convert truetype fonts into bitmap fonts and, more importantly, replace individual characters with bitmaps. In this example we have replaced every character with a picture we have cut out of a magazine.

We're very proud to announce that we have managed to fully integrated bitmap fonts into BluffTitler: the only GUI change will be a SELECT BITMAP FONT button in the font dialog (F6). This way text and scroller layers can easily switch between vector and bitmap fonts.

Alphabix 1.0 and the next version of BluffTitler supporting bitmap fonts will be released before the end of the year.

The main purpose of Alphabix is to create bitmap fonts for use in BluffTitler, but it will also feature HTML export. Here's an interactive HTML demo. Currenty only the characters A to I (upper case) have been replaced, but more are coming:
