Hi Guys

I have a large O and a large N and both have jagged edges in the rendered output, with or without alpha. Even the diagonal on the N is not nice - has gray dots along the edge.

I've tried the anti-alias setting 5x5 and the faceting setting of 0.1 and still doesn't look good, especially white rotating the letters

Anything else I can try here? It just looks super amature

Please advise

_Dave

It could be many different causes, but is your final render coming out of another program like After Effects? If so, right click the zax-created movie in your project pane and choose Interpret Footage > Main. Then turn separate fields to "Off".

It sounds like you are looking at the RGB without applying the alpha channel.

For instance if you are looking at the final movie in QuickTime Player it'll show bad aliasing because QuickTime Player doesn't apply the alpha to the RGB. It just shows the raw RGB. Zaxwerks software always leaves a raw RGB so you don't get ghosting around the edges (double-pre-multiplying) once the image is composited.

Once you bring the movie into your compositor and apply the alpha it'll look perfect. Each compositor does it a little differently so which one are you using?

Best,
Zax

Hello

Thanks for your reply. I think some of it has to do with the alpha but I had tried both with and without alpha so some of it may not be related to alpha. I've tried rendering at different resolutions and frame per second settings and simplifying the edges to basic flat edges and that seems to make some difference.

I'll continue to experiment but now I have a larger issue with crashes during rendering on multiple different projects, so I will post that one and hope for a resolution to it.

Thanks again
