This is an issue I've had for years, across multiple machines, with like half the resource packs I've used that have custom fonts. The font becomes pixelated when in all previews of the font I've seen it looks fine. No one else seems to have ever had this issue from searching this forum and reddit/planet minecraft/minecraft forums etc. I'm using OptiFine, Custom Fonts are on, my GUI scale is set to 2, increasing GUI scale doesn't help, and it persists between the default Sphax font and PureBDCraft font addon.

The attached image is the options screen.

The TTF font will likely always look blurry because Minecraft doesn't really support it well. To make it less blurry I believe it required a very high resampling level which crashed a lot of people's games, and actually causes certain glyphs to not render correctly.

As for the non-TTF text I notice the font is blurry for me on any GUI scale below 4. It's just a quirk of Minecraft. Likely because scaling a rounded font is less clean than a square font (like the Minecraft default).
