View Full Version : Flowing Title Effect Tutorial - Odd blockyness

01 January 2006, 02:06 PM
Has anyone here completed this ( tutorial or one like it?

I'm getting some odd effects around my text as it starts to form resuling in blockyness and artifacting? I have all my footage and comps set to the same sizes and everything is on best quality. I can't figure out why it's doing this?

Here's a grab from inside ae to illustrate.
(Yes I know I have the comp res set to 200% but thats just to show the effect more. It still looks bad at 100%)

Would anyone know what is causing this?

It may be easier if someone could look at my file perhaps?

Any help greatly appreciated.

That 100% black and 100% white layer you show makes me think you've applied either Threshold or Curves to a wrong layer. Could you have accidently applied the Curves effect to your Flow PreComp rather than the Blur PreComp?
I just skimmed the tut so I'm really just guessing...
