AE Layer Styles jagged edges
on Aug 3, 2010 at 9:30:56 am

Hi!

For a project I used layer styles to add strokes and drop shadows to shapes. Some shapes come from Illustrator and some are shapes from AE. But most of the edges are kinda jagged. But for example not the edges of the circle in the lower left portion of the composition.
What could be the problem?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Do you use the Collapse Transformations switch on your layers?

Hi Dave,

Yes Collapse Transformation is on by default. I can't even turn it off... I also found the solution: recreating the shapes seems to solve the issue. But I have no clue about the real source of the problem. To me it looks like there's is some render issue going on. I use CS4 by the way.
But the problem is kinda solved, at least I have a decent solution. So thanks a lot for your help!
