applying marching squares algorithm on ttf fonts for glowing them at the contours(highlighting fonts )


#1

hi, all the geeks out there

I am trying to set a glow around the fonts.

in my previous post I posted about glowing the sprites http://www.cocos2d-x.org/boards/6/topics/8670
I ended up adding another sprite.
but, fonts cannot be dealt with the same way.

I want to get the texture of fonts(if it has)to work upon it.

the only thing comes to my mind is applying marching squares algorithm.

any ideas or suggestions are welcome.

thanks
