Jagged text in AE
on Jul 31, 2020 at 9:56:57 pm

Created some 3D text in After Effects, but both in the comp window and on final render, I have these aliased lines on the text. The vertical and horizontal parts of the text are fine, but any curves or angles show up jagged.

I've checked all the usual stuff like layer resolution set to best etc. This happens no matter what font I choose. Anyone else having this problem?

Hi Steve,

the problem is with the layer effects.
Don't use layer effects -> Stroke, it is always a very hard and ugly edge, especially at 720P and lower.

Use the stroke of the type Tool itself, and set the gradient overlay's blending to multiply so the darker outline comes through
