    [CS4] Pixel fonts getting chunky at size multiples

    I'm having a problem getting pixel fonts to look right in CS4.

    If I set the font to its native size (let's say 10pt) it looks nice and crisp. If I try to set it to a multiple of that (20pt, 30pt, etc.) it gets distorted and chunky.

    It's happening with multiple fonts (Cellular, Genetica, 04).

    Has anyone else experienced this? Any solutions?

    Here's a screenshot of the problem:


    I put a comparison of the font in Photoshop to show how it should look at 20pt.

    This happens on both my computers, in CS3 and CS4, with multiple fonts.

    Verify _x and _y positions, must be nearest pixel measurement, no half pixel measurements are permitted.

    It also may be that you're set to BitmapText under properties instead of Animation or Readability causing the renderer to mash up sharp pixels.

    Are you getting a render warning when you publish the SWF? Restarting Flash and reinstalling may work; corrupt fonts are a hit and miss.
