Ultra Close up of Element 3D text with Saber

Trying to figure out how to do what Andrew did in this video

Starting @ 16:30

Im trying to do text in Element and have the Saber plugin animate along the edge of the text. That’s no problem. I cant figure out how to get an ultra close up shot of the text without losing resolution on the Saber layer. I took my text layer and converted it to masks, and added Saber. I added a camera and adjusted the Z value to get a close up shot of the Element 3D text, but I loose resolution on the Saber layer. I can adjust the particle size of the text in Element 3D but then how do you get the Saber layer to stay the same size?

I have searched your forums and tutorials and couldn’t find anything explaining how this is done. Lots of tutorials of how to get a saber text layer to line up on top of an Element text layer but nothing on how to get an ultra close up shot of the edge of the text with Saber animating along the edge.

Thanks!
