Type generator attempting to turn bitmap fonts into vector typefaces.

Typefaces undergo a complex degradation procedure to be displayed as accurately as possible on screen via bitmap font files. Written in Macromedia Director, the PostBitScriptMapper (PBSM) type generator attempts to work the opposite way by using a simplistic enhancement routine to attempt a recreation of the original typeface from bitmap sources. PBSM’s resulting letterforms expose the flawed translation process and celebrate the eccentricity of its limited amplification algorithm.
