View Full Version : txt in combustion!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi everyone!!!!!

When I render text from combustion, it looks jugged on tv Y?????
It is also rendered as best quality, but I still get a jugged look (Text is not even readable).
Any idea?????????????

Just off the top of my head, could it be a fields problem?
What are you rendering out as?
could you perhaps be un proportionally scaling the text when you render out?

I'm looking here and i couldn't see what the problem could be.

Is your text on a text layer or or as a paint layer or operator? cause if it's paint maybe you need to turn on anti alias.

Let me know

What size is the text? Low res TV's need special treatment of text.

Also, very rarely would you want to use a serif font on TV, unless it's pretty darn big, otherwise the serifs just get buried.

Font is Arial, size 15, opacity 60% and it is not a paint layer it is txt layer operator.

Render option: targa sequence, best quality

By the way wehre do i turn on anti aliasing in combustion??

Thank you guys

I think this is just a case of the poor quality of NTSC biting you. 15 point font is mighty small to be displayed on the typical TV. Try a slightly higher font size and see if you're results improve.

The fine details of a typeface get buried on a high-end computer monitor, much less a TV which (depending on model) can be as low as 200-300 lines.

I agree with the last post NTSC is a bitch and your letters are really small, is your text animated cuz I work around might be to create the same text in photoshop and then just animate it in combustion.... just a thought
