Hello, I am really hoping that this is a fixable bug and not a stupid mistake on my part, however, I have a slight feeling it is the latter.

So I have a couple second long title that I am trying to have extruded text in 3D space.

The text, unextruded looks like this.

Here the font looks fine and like It should. However, once I extrude it it looks like this.

Notice the inconstancy in thickness of the letters and how some of the holes in the letters are filled in.

I have used the ray-trace extruder before without these results and I have no software updates. Does anyone know what the problem is?

The issue is caused by type that is 3 px high and scaled several thousand percent. Make the type about 80 px at 100% scale.

Ugh, I knew it would be something obvious and basic. Thanks for your help, that was exactly the problem. For some reason whenever I create a text layer from a tracked camera it comes up with seemingly random font size to scale ratios.
