Hello all, I've recently come across a problem using After Effects...

My font is slightly blurry when zoomed in on, almost like it's blending when it shouldn't be (I don't know terminology, sorry lol). I just got After Effects yesterday and this problem was not occuring.

This is what I want my font to look like:

This is what it looks like:

My resolution is on Full and I haven't changed any settings, it was like this when I opened it up this morning! Help!

LD,

The way it is pixelated makes it look like a simple magnification of something that would look right in a smaller size; unless you have just set the original size too small, I believe this is the place to ask:  http://forums.adobe.com/community/aftereffects_general_discussion.

Dear Jacob, thank you so much for the prompt and correct response.

As I said, I'm brand new to AE. The reason it looked that way (I assume) is because when using the magnification tool, the text stays at the same quality it was when it was made. But when you zoom in using the camera tool the text rasterizes allowing zoom to extremely high levels without losing quality.

Thanks again!

You are welcome, LD. Actually, I had no clue what After Effects was until I looked it up right now.
