I'm having a following problem - I have created a vector text (eps file) and imported it into After Effects. I have applied a feathered mask (130px feather) to the eps vector text file so that the letters have full opacity in the middle and lose the opacity at their edges. I have also applied a glow effect (glow radius of 120px). The final effect is a nice, neon-ish text.
I want that text to get zoomed. Obviously, when I zoom it without ticking the collapse transformations tick, it gets all pixelated. However, when I apply the collapse transformations option, the letters get bigger, but the feather remains 130px and the glow remains 120px. I have no clue how to get the glow and feather 'uncollapsed', but still have the letters unpixelated when i zoom the camera in towards the text.
I'm assuming that what I need to do is somehow apply the 'collapse tranformations' to objects and not the effects... and I have no idea how to do that.
