Hi All

Is there any way to get text looking better at smaller font sizes?



http://www.niceuk.com The first anim I have done with the app!

It is somewhat possible, if you have a smaller version of the same font or a like font.

also, if bold is checked, uncheck it because it will 'smear' the font.

Thanks for your reply.

Still having varing results re smaller text sizes. I don't seem to ge the same problem in Adobe Live Motion. However LM is very limited in the pre-set aminations department!
Is there a way to import 3DFA files in to LM for the benifit of adding smaller texts?

Live Motion... Hmmmmm... Can't say I've heard of it, can it edit .swf files?

The text quality is only depending on the text size!

Play with the font size setting and you get perfect sharp fonts.

If it's not a fully animated text you should use the HTML text as it's the sharpest especially if you use HTML code to size it. Also look for pixel fonts that are meant to be small they work pretty well when shrunk down.

look at this example
