Join Alan Demafiles for an in-depth discussion in this video Collapse transformations, part of After Effects CC 2017 Essential Training: Motion Graphics.
- There's a magic button of sorts inside of AfterEffects…that does a little bit of something cool,…I've heard some people call it the star button.…The official name is collapse transformations…or continuously rasterize…because the button does two functions.…And I'll show you the first one here.…So, I have an illustrator file…and I'm going to go ahead and scale this up…to a thousand percent,…and as I do you'll notice that the image quality…starts to degrade pretty quickly.…All these harsh edges, it's really nasty.…
Well this is an illustrator file, it has vector information,…it's all mathematical, what's the deal?…Well when we turn on our star button,…our continuously rasterize button,…you'll see that it clears up pretty quickly…and everything is razor sharp again.…So what's the deal?…Let's go ahead and go back down to a hundred percent,…and what's happening is that AfterEffects is taking…that vector information and rasterizing it…making it bitmap or pixels in this case…and when we start to scale up and go to a thousand percent,…
