Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Choosing the right anti-aliasing method for text and lines, part of Motion Graphics for Video Editors: Terms and Technology (2014).
- Earlier we talked about how lines…and texts are often vector elements.…These elements are rasterized in tools…like Photoshop and it's important…to realize that you have several…different methods of rasterization.…For example, lets take a look at this text.…You'll notice as we get to the edges…of the shape that it introduces a small stair step.…Let's zoom in here to a higher…magnification of 400%.…With this particular font,…in order to create the curved lines…essentially we have to create different…blending along the edges.…
Think of these a lot like Legos.…If I double click on this text layer…you'll notice that it's currently…using the Sharp anti-aliasing method.…With no anti-aliasing…the text looks very jagged.…Even at a 100% view the jagged…edges are quite visible.…It's important if working with vector elements…in a tool like Photoshop that…you do not use No Anti-Aliasing.…On the other hand as we step through…the different methods here,…lets see how they behave.…
We'll zoom in here to 400% so its easy to see.…Sharp, Crisp.…
