Text choppy modeling

edited December 1969 in Carrara Discussion

Text tool in Carrara makes bad curves on font. Check the included image. Render is carrara 8.5 pro, and below the same typo in photoshop. What am I missing? How can we have a good type respect in Carrara's text model?

    The issue is that Carrara is converting 2D type into a 3D geometry. Try looking for the Fidelity field in the text editor and increasing the value to see if that helps enough.

    I had to increase fidelity to 1000, but it worked. thanks.

    If the fidelity setting doesn't do enough, the option is to convert the text to a vertex model. It will be a messy mesh that may need some clean up, but then you could apply smoothing. You also wouldn't be able to edit it as text anymore either.
