Does anyone know if there are any issues with continuous rasterization when using vectors with element 3d?

I have added some text within after effects to an iphone screen but I appear to be getting pixelation when zoomed in on the screen?

Cheers, Ali

If you are zooming using Mouse scroll, then it is an expected behavior.

Use a Camera to zoom in and then check the results.

It also depends on the resolution of the screen you're putting in there - if it's the standard Photoshop 72ppi, then it's going to look like garbage. You're going to want something much higher; for example, if you're working at 1920 x 1080, and you're wanting to zoom in pretty full, you'll need a vertical rez on the screen of at least 800 or 900, more if you go tight.

Hi guys,

I am using after effects text and illustrator images so should be no pixelation atall?

Tried zooming with a camera when it isnt placed in the phone and it looks fine but when placed within element 3d it looks rubbish?

I have attached a screenshot - standard text is usually very crisp.



Cheers, Ali

Continuous rasterization doesn't apply to graphics within Element 3D. If you want that to work, you need to make a feature request to Video Copilot.

I suspect that once you use your comp as a texture in Element 3D. it's probably being down-sampled for the GPU. I had the same problem on a recent project and the easiest workaround is to animate your screen content as a 3D AE layer, and link it to the Element object so that it moves with it - that way, the screen should look nice and crisp. And the easiest way to link Element3D to other AE layers is with the Elementary script.

That makes sense, I suppose I just place the screen just in front of the element model?

I will try it out and see how it looks! Cheers guys.
