The Alphabix application was designed to be a small utility for creating bitmap fonts. It has been designed for use with BluffTitler DX9, but also features HTML export.

A bitmap font is a font in which every character is a small picture. Other names for bitmap fonts are image fonts, raster fonts and texture fonts. Bitmap fonts created by Alphabix are full colour, contain transparency info, are unicode and can be up to 512 pixels high per character.

You can also download Alphabix Portable.

Main features:

  • Convert vector fonts into bitmap fonts:
  • Alphabix can convert any True Type, Open Type and Type 1 font installed on your system. You can set the character range (which characters you would like to convert), the character set, the size, colour, border size and border colour.
  • Replace characters by pictures:
  • Any character can be replaced by any PNG, BMP, GIF, TIF or JPG picture. Alpha channels are correctly imported.
  • Bitmap fonts are full colour:
  • Vector fonts like True Type (TTF) do not contain any colour information. Bitmap fonts are full colour.
  • Bitmap fonts are highly detailed:
  • Complex shapes are difficult to vectorize and expensive to render. Bitmap fonts can handle small details much more efficiently.
  • Bitmap fonts are easy to design:
  • If you know how to draw a picture in a paint application you can design your own bitmap font.
  • Bitmap fonts are always antialiased:
  • Even on older graphics cards that do not feature good quality hardware antialiasing, bitmap fonts are antialiased because the texture file created by Alphabix is perfectly antialiased.
  • Bitmap fonts do not scale:
  • A disadvantage of bitmap fonts is that they do not scale. The edge of a vector font stays razor sharp, no matter how close you zoom in. However, when zooming in on a bitmap font, the individual pixels become visible.
