ofxTrueTypeFontUC

10 February 2014

A great add-on for openFrameworks to render text with unicode characters. Works way better than the default ofTrueTypeFont with the character encoding set to OF_ENCODING_UTF8. Useful if you need to render text in European languages with lots of accents like French.
