Custom Shapes from PS look pixelated
on Oct 21, 2010 at 3:14:49 pm

I have made a custom shape with the 4 layer approach(Icon,Highlight,Shape, Mask) in Photoshop. I have tried using both a stroke 10px and an outer glow 20px when creating the highlight layer.

When I bring the shapes into DVD SP they still look jagged, the one created with the glow a little less so. I had a simple black highlight, so I tried in the color tab in DVD SP to take the black and make it 100% opacity and then also make the gray scales with less opacity as suggested in a tutorial that I found on-line, and this helped a bit, but the lines still are not clean.

The shapes that ship with DVD SP are clean, so I imagine it should be possible. Any tips? Do I need to use Illustrator?

What I am trying to do it to cut the custom shape from a background menu image and fill that with my videos.
