Distance Field Font Generation?

Quickie, trying to use the TextRender, but it only works with the default RobotoDistanceField asset in the engine. Is there a way to generate distance field fonts from TTF/OTF fonts?

Yes.
Open the font, make it local or whatever the equivalent option is.
pick 40pt as the base size, I find it works best.

After it converts it is made into an imported font.

Within its settings you’ll find the option to toggle on for distance field.
After toggling you need to right click the top and reselect the re-import option.

That creates the proper dept of field font that actally works without having to go and manually specify sizing/creating by hand.
