Problem with Text Quality
on Mar 13, 2012 at 2:33:24 pm

Hi there,

I am using AECS4 and trying to create a title sequence in the 1080/25P preset.

Text layers look terrible: blocky, with jagged edges.

I have not had this problem before.

Any idea what caused be causing this and how I can rectify it?

Thanks!

When you say the text looks blocky are you talking about a rendered file or are you still in the composition window?

You need to learn about the Pixel Aspect Ratio Compensation toggle switch at the bottom of the comp window. It looks like an arrow with heads at both ends.

Toggled one way the comp is 4x3 & squeezed horizontally, and the edges of the text look nice and smooth.
Toggled the other way the comp is 16x9, but the edges of the text look jagged.
When rendered, the edges are nice and smooth, no matter what.

Check that the quality switch is set to full quality and that your comp window is set to full quality and 100% zoom. Is the problem just with a certain font? Does it still occur in other comps, other projects, etc.?

Please post a screenshot of your Composition panel.
