Hi. Are the fonts listed in the Text panel free for commercial use?
Also, I imported file for a font and set scene size to 4K resolution. The font appears pixelated at 560 px size. Does that mean it will render pixelated? Do I need to search for a different font with bigger sizes available? How to find out what is the biggest size for a font without stretching and pixelation?
Thank you Daniel. Yes, I am using the Typography panel. But it looks like my font of choice can only go upto 288 px and I was making a 4K ‘scene’ with 700 px fonts. So it was getting pixelated. I have made the compromise of making the scene FHD (1080p). I want to use bigger fonts but I also want to make sure they have no ‘embedding restrictions’ so that I can use them commercially. Apple’s Font Book app lets me check that. But it doesn’t let me filter to get a list of all fonts or sort with biggest size. I checked a few randomly, but I don’t think any of them are bigger than 288.
just a very limited part of fonts is pixelbased. 99,9 % are Vectores. so there should not be a pixalated effect. exception as Daniel stated -> have you used any transformation on the Text-Element? There may be a workaround in that case to uncheck webkitacceleration in the documentpanel ...
also: adding a hypedoc showcasing an issue is always a good help for those answering here
No, I meant workaround for sharing file here. The upload button of the forum comment editor only support uploading certain kinds of files.
I was suspicious that it got pixelated because I put a custom value 700 which is more than double of 288. But maybe it was temporary because I was editing in my 13" MacBook Air. I exported to video and streamed on a 4K TV. Now I don't see any pixelation (judging by naked eye).
I have already completed the animation, and now it will take too much effort to manually scale everything to 4K. So it's good to know that 1080p should be preferred. Can you tell me how to best get the 4K video from this 1080p project now?
I see two options:
In Scene inspector I can keep 1920x1080 px but then turn on Scale to 400%
In File -> Export as Movie -> Video... and set width and height to 3840x2160 px
Or should I do both? Yesterday I did both. I have attached the exported file below.
They are terrible terms for many reasons beyond just the change of measuring width vs height components... also 4K originally meant 4,096x2,160 and not an exact 2x of 1920x1080... "UHD" is the official term what we colloquially call 4K at 3,840x2160. Of course you could say it is "doubled" but it does in fact contain quadruple the number of actual pixels as 1080p. Let's not even get started that "HD" also has no specific clear meaning, although most times refers to 1080p. It's all a mess .
