The updated Courier Prime does remove the "blobbiness" and reads better on screen but the T vertical stroke also makes me crazy. I noticed it within seconds of reformatting. Those of us with font prowess can adjust it but...
The other thing that is extremely maddening is how Final Draft won't apply the font change to the page numbers. This is a deal breaker for any kind of font exchanging to me. Final Draft Guys, FIX THIS. I even went into the FDX format with a code editor to catch all of the XML lines that didn't translate the font change but the page numbers must be set through the application itself because this did not succeed.
All this amazing technology and human error still manages to hold it back...
1.) Film is not dead and will only get there if we let it.
2.) Digital is already it's own beast, by nature. The way film and digital see light will always be different. Therefore, digital and film will never look identical. You can borrow qualities from film and apply them to digital, which definitely helps, but it will never be the same thing.
Long live film!
