Join Chris Meyer for an in-depth discussion in this video Improving the anti-aliasing, part of After Effects Apprentice: 19 Motion Tracking with Cinema 4D Lite.
- [Voiceover] I save anti-aliasing and render quality…to the very last thing that I do, because it really…adds to my render time.…And rather than making everything else I do slower,…I try to work on all the other parameters I can,…with a faster rendering speed, lower render quality,…and then tweak the quality at my last step…before doing the final render for the client.…Now one thing I'm going to do is switch…from the After Effects camera back to my…default camera, just so that I can zoom in…tighter on this crown and see more details.…
I'll increase the size of my interactive render region,…so I can take in that whole crown,…and not have to keep pressing Command or Control R.…And I'll deselect the crown so we don't have…that orange outline.…If you look through this area of the crown,…you'll see what looks like an almost corrugated texture.…You'll see it in this band right through here as well,…and also a little bit in these reflections.…You'll see it particularly through this band as well.…That's not supposed to be a texture,…
The first course in the series, After Effects Apprentice 17, includes an overview of the C4D Lite user interface, as well as important setup information you need to know whenever you use live C4D layers in After Effects. We recommend you watch it first if you have no prior experience with C4D.
