jagged edges on shape layer
on Aug 4, 2017 at 5:26:58 pm

Hey guys, simple question. I have a shape layer that appears to be jagged on the edge and curious whether there is something that can smooth it out–like anti-aliasing. it is set at best quality and rendered at full resolution, no compression and yet still has a bit of jaggedness (like along the pixel range). It is an angled path shape created on a shape layer. I have attached a screenshot that hopefully gets the point across. The shape in question is the yellow shape especially where it overlaps the light blue shape. Does anyone know of a way to smooth this out anymore? Thanks for your help! AE CS6

If that's the size it's actually supposed to be, it looks fine.
That's what, 400 pixels high? What were you expecting? Moreover, what are you making?

Hi Dave, it is for a Facebook video banner. So yes, close to 400px at 312px. To me, it just seemed more pronounced than normal, and it may be due to the contrast. I figured it might be normal, but I still have a lot to learn in AE and wondered whether there might be something I am missing here. Perhaps not in this case :). Thanks for the feedback!

You can add a hint of blur and that will antialias it a little more. Use gaussian so you can do sub 1 pixel values.

That did the trick. Thanks Steve!
