I'm new to after effects so I need a little troubleshooting help.
I am trying to create a magnifying glass type effect over some type.
I've followed some online tutorials and have added an adjustment layer using magnify and bulge effects and have them tracking the magnifying glass movement all good so far.
The issue is the magnify effect seems to be duplicating the text and enlarging to over the top of the original text (double vision see attached image).
Any ideas why this might be happening?
I had the same issue, I created a solid and used it as background, the magnify effect would affect the solid too and cover the original text.
Put the effect directly on the layer instead of adjustment layer - does this help?
Not really. But have found a solution by combining the 2 responses and adding something else.
Add a solid shape behind the text, then pre-composed the 2 elements, then added the effect to the new pre-composition.
Still have the same double vision effect, but I have found a work around.
Has this ever been solved? I have the same issue and it's absolutely annoying. It used to work.
I am still having this issue and the whole "put a solid shape layer underneath it all and precompose" does NOT work whatsoever. It still is appearing to duplicate the animation I am trying to magnify a part of.
Correct Answer is really this need solid. and adobe should be accept this bug
Ye sthis is bloody irritating. Instead of releasing countless versions Adobe should trry to fix what's not working first.
I hate working with Premiere too, give me Avid anytime.
Is this problem specific to one font? Maybe try a different text font?
