    Want to use TTF

    I have a graphics/drawing type program

    Using OpenGl for the 3D. Using OpenCV for object recognition, etc.

    I want the user to be able to add TTF text to their images. I also want to be able to using some object recognition on that text.

    Im a bit frustrated. I'm not sure the best direction to go.

    And then on top of it, i understand the only way to do this is to use Bitmap fonts?

    Does anyone have suggestions on where to go with this?
