@Kuro...I LOVE Stargate SG1. Is that the opening you were talking about?
@Pervez...Not sure what your problem is. Is you caps lock on or do you have the small caps toggle on in the character rollout? Those would be my 2 guesses.
@Owen...Never saw couples retreat. Can you send me a link to a video of the opening? If I like it and think it would make a good tutorial and show some new techniques, I may give it a go.

Thanks to everyone for watching and the great comments.

by Owen Nicol
Thanks Mike for this brilliant tutorial - I've learned a lot from it.

One thing I'd like to see would be the opening titles for Couple's Retreat. I know, it's a chick flick, but I like the titles!

Thanks again!

Just getting into AE. Will have to find a way to use this - maybe instead of clouds I'll do it with guts.

Here are 2 requested tutorials from me, only if you are interested and have time:

1. HP out of the picture commercial:






2. Adding fantasy digital matte painting to a footage in after effect just like you are in a fantasy world although you are just in your back yard.


Thanks!
Future tutorial suggestions?
by Mike Park
Do you have any other effects, movie or tv, you would like to see in upcoming tutorials? I am always looking for new ideas.

Pixilation
by Mike Park
I think the pixilation has more to do with the resolution of the texture applied to the text than the text itself. The text is already vector as it is a font, not an image. I have not looked at this too deeply, but that is my first thought. Apply a larger texture to the text in the precomp and see if that fixes the problem.

Best,

Mike
Illustrator?
by Zak Ray
Total AE newb, but could you have avoided the pixelation on the text by using a vectored Illustrator file? Or at the very least, building the text in an oversize comp?
