Hi Community,

I have recently been doing the opening and closing titles for my film and have hit a couple of niggles.

Diagonal lines are not smooth, they show a slightly pixellated edge. I made then in AE and exported them in 1920x1080 Apple Pro Res.

Any solutions on how to make these jagged edges disappear?

Hope you can help.
Thanks very much
Andy :-)

When you say exported, do you mean rendered?
Does the text look pixellated in the comp before rendering?
Are you positive you're rendering at full quality?
How are you viewing the rendered result?

mhhhhh, this sounds like interlacing to me. or quality issue.

Composition Settings>resolution should be full
Render Queue in Render Settings Make sure Field Render is Off to get a progressive signal.
Render Queue in Output Module Settings go to Format Options under the Video Output section. In the Codac Settings make sure that "Interlaced" is off

Try that see if that gets you better results.

Best of luck,

Followed the steps but still no difference, unfortunately.

Any other ideas? I think it is an aliasing problem. Tried applying a mask too, but the feather doesn't fit aesthetically. It needs to be hard lines.

Cheers

I'm still pretty sure it's an FCP thing. Double check the field order of your edit timeline in FCP under sequence settings.

Yeah, it's rendered out, and i can see some jaggyness on the diagonals, but I have set the quality to best in the layer window.

The rendered results look fine on my mac monitor, but when we boost the signal and view it on an external monitor the problem in much more visible.

Cheers Michal, will give that a try. Will let you know if it works.

There's some FCP weirdness where it thinks every 1920x1080 video file is upper-field-first, even if you render it frames only (no fields) in AE.

Check the clip in the FCP browser; I bet you'll have to change the field order (incorrectly called field dominance in FCP) upper field first to none, and the problem then goes away.
