Magnify effect double vision

Hi,

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). 

Screenshot 2020-02-28 at 10.54.59.png

Any ideas why this might be happening?

 

Thanks.

Put the effect directly on the layer instead of adjustment layer - does this help? *Martin

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.

Not really. But have found a solution by combining the 2 responses and adding something else.

 

Solution:

Add a solid shape behind the text, then pre-composed the 2 elements, then added the effect to the new pre-composition.

Has this ever been solved? I have the same issue and it's absolutely annoying. It used to work.

Is this problem specific to one font? Maybe try a different text font?
