Saber Close-up Pixelated

Postby jfantonovitch on 12/5/2016, 5:11 pm

I am trying to create a similar effect to when Andrew released the Saber Plugin and there was an instance of Saber animating around the inside of an extruded text layer in Element 3D. I am trying to create a similar effect with my Logo, but I can't get super close to the Saber layer with my 3D Camera because it gets pixelated and doesn't look very good. Is there a workaround to this? I have copied my logo from Illustrator and pasted the paths to a solid for my masks, that is the reference I am using for both my Element layer and my Saber layers. I am uploading a render of what I am talking about.

I know you posted that awhile back but I am having the same issue. Did you find a work around? Or a way to fix it?

Same issue here.
I´m using the Patronus preset, and it looks super-pixelated.
Any settings anywhere to change this other than increasing "Core Softness" (which only makes the core blurry)?

I love goooooold. The look of it, the daste of it, the schmell of it, the dexture.
I love gold so much that I even lost my genitalia in an unfortunate schmelting accident. Hence the name....

Hey I know this is probably a year too late, but for future reference:

I think I figured out how to do this (possibly the Andrew Kramer way). Just make your comp 4k or 8k depending on how dense you want the pixels to be. Super simple solution, but sadly it took me awhile to think of this. I just wanted to just this down, haven't completed the graphic I'm working on yet. I'll update if I think of anything else, but I'm sure this will work.

Personally I set it to 8k and just set quality to quarter. Seems to render fine.

possible solutions according to me:

1. change size of saber comp to 4k.
2. uncheck draft textures.
3. if you are using fast draft at the right corner of preview window in AE disable it
4. change the preview resolution to full if you haven't set it to full.
5. try increasing supersampling values
6. change maximum texture size
