FreeType Tutorial / III

III. Examples

For completeness, here again a link to the example used and explained in the first part of the tutorial.

Erik Möller contributed a very nice C++ example that shows renderer callbacks in action to draw a coloured glyph with a differently coloured outline. The source code can be found here.

Another example demonstrates how to use FreeType's stand-alone rasterizer, ftraster.c, both in B/W and 5-levels gray mode. You need files from FreeType version 2.3.10 or newer.

Róbert Márki contributed a small Qt demonstration program (together with its qmake file) that shows both direct rendering with a callback and rendering with a buffer, yielding the same result. You need FreeType 2.4.3 or newer.
