Hi,

Why is it that some logos I bring into Photoshop as smart objects look fine while others look pixelated? Is there anything I can do to improve that?

Thanks!

Select the Smart Object layer, start a Free Transform (dont actually change the transform), and in the options bar turn on antialiasing, then commit the transform (again, without changing anything but the antialiasing checkbox).

For me as well.

I created a group of objects, all vector, and with some type. All vector and scalable to whatever size without problems inside the group. But, if I turn it into an smart object, everything gets pixelated like if it was raster... pretty weird, And my "antialias" box is disabled, and greyed out.

Can someone post a fix for this? This didn't happen before... I am using latest version of CC

No.

You do not seem to understand what a Smart Object created in Photoshop is, it is a psb, so a vector Smart Object in the Smart Object is expressed as pixels in the containing document.

Ok.
Understood. It's a shame though, I think.

Hi Chris Cox,

I feel like I never heard the answer to khemist000 re " ...This seems like it would fix the same issue that Im having as the original poster, HOWEVER, my Anti-Alias checkbox is greyed out and cannot be clicked. Am I missing a step?" I'm having the same problem Why is the anti-alias box greyed out?
