Continuously Rasterize Messes up my Camera

Why?

I am in a rush to make a deadline to create a Kinetic Type project for the first time in After effects CS4. I built my text in illustrator, then I imported it into AE and broke the different parts in to separate comps. Then I added all my separate comps into one master comp where I created a camera to make my animation. My animation was working well tied with music, but when I tried to zoom into my text, the text became extremely pixelated. I came here and found a great solution... turn on Continuously Rasterize. Text looks great now!! but now my Camera gets totally thrown off.

Help!

Make sure your Illustrator layers 3d, or else your camera will no effect them.

They are 3D :(

Take the illustrator layers out of their own nested comps, put the layers in the master comp, turn on Continuously Rasterize, and life gets much better very quickly. Continuously Rasterize will work on a 3D Illustrator layer.

Thanks All. That worked! Hey but I have two other questions for now:

Is it possible to still have motion blur while having continuously rasterize? may seem odd, but I would ideally like to have the text be crisp while having blurs appear when the text moves fast and rotates.

With a ton of layers, is their an AE equivalent to grouping in a single comp?

[Luciano Stalman] "Is it possible to still have motion blur while having continuously rasterize?"

I have never need to use it, but it's an easy thing to check. Try it on a few layers and see what happens.

If they're all illustrator layers, you may be stuck. Do you know about using Shy Layers to reduce the number of layers you see in the timeline at any one time?

Absolutely.

You can't group layers per se, but you can assign a set of layers with a color label [link] to let you visually identify them in the timeline. You can also use color labels to select all layers with the same label in just a few clicks.

how would i have both the blur and the continuous rasterize on?

Well, you turn on the layer's switch to activate motion blur -- it looks like a group of circles angling up -- and possibly the camera's switch (if it has one; I forget). Then you find the corresponding big motion blur switch at the timeline, and activate it, too.

Since this topic is about continuously rasterize. I'll assume you already know that switch.

Don't think you can have the default blur on continuously rasterized layers, just use CC force motion blur. Works like a charm.

Brilliant. The CC Force Motion Blur works a treat for Illustrator graphics coupled with motion blur. Go: Effects > Time > CC Force Motion Blur.

You can leve them in their nested comps with all the layers whithin that comp have the switches Continuosly Rasterize and 3D layer turned on.
