Controlling with Wireframe versus Origin/Anchor Point
on May 24, 2011 at 6:44:15 pm

Hi, I have read and found out that positioning your text on the screen with your mouse (wireframe) causes some strangeness and decrease in the quality, and that in moving it with the origin and anchor point coordinates, you keep the quality.

Does this same rule apply with photos and pictures and video too?

You can move the wireframe manually when roughing-out the moves, but then you'll need to go back and plug in full numbers into x and y coordinates, with even numbers only on the y-axis.

By "even numbers" are you referring to ....2...4...6...8..etc.? or just WHOLE numbers?

Whole number on the x-axis and even whole numbers on the y-axis.

Don't know exactly why, but characters have to rest on even numbered scan lines to display at their optimal resolution.

Does this only apply to text? Or would anything....graphic, still, video clip, etc.... be affected by the loss?

And how much resolution loss are we talking about? Obviously, ANY loss is not optimal, but is it usually noticeable?

[Michael Griggs] "Does this only apply to text? Or would anything....graphic, still,"

Everything works better with whole numbers and even numbers on the y-axis.

[Michael Griggs] "And how much resolution loss are we talking about?"

There's no overall percentage that applies to everything 100% of the time -- It really depends on the individual element, but you should test it yourself. It's often the difference between useable and unusable.

Anything that has a straight 'hard edge' like text, a squeeze back, photos.

I have a system, it has stuff in it, and stuff hooked to it. I have a camera, it can record stuff. I read the manuals, and know how to use this stuff and lots of other stuff too.
You should be suitably impressed...

Thanks a lot. This cleared things up. So I can move with the wireframe but ultimately should adjust the numbers. Makes sense.
