Strange text issue

Does anyone know why this is happening? It's just an extruded text, shaped around a spline circle with path deform modifier. Tried everything including re-modeling the letter A but nothing worked. Funny that a simple thing caused many problems... :/

Most problems with Text (and altering it slightly) stem from the fact that the majority of letters have their "front" face as a single polygon. This means that making it confirm to a spline or bending it is very tricky. Try adding some geometry (maybe try a bunch of random cuts along it, just to see if it actually helps. If so, then you may have to go back and subdivide it a little more carefully).

First I tried to quadify mesh. Seems like it worked but when I used the rotate on the path modifier it caused the same flaw again. I deleted the text created it from scratch once again, followed the exact same steps and there's another flaw on the A's mesh.

Done! Deleted the problematic faces, did some cut and weld and then border cap.

subdivide modifier helps in those cases,
and you can keep everything parametric
edit: just to avoid confusion - i don't mean turbosmooth or similar, but the old "subdivide" modifier - leftover from lightscape integration..

I have been wishing for poly-text for a looooooong time. Wonder if it will ever happen.
