I heard that the After Effects UI isnt compatible with the Retina display of the 15 inch Retina Macbook Pro. Is there a way to change the resolution to enable the UI to appear sharp? Are there any plug-ins or workarounds to alleviate the non-compatibilty? I'm asking this question because After Effects is the main application I want to be using.
"Completely untrue" was your statement. "I use one every day.".........I figured you knew what you were talking about, so I took your advice. I'm working on my new Retina Macbook Pro right now. And you are not correct, THE CONTENT screen in the UI is certainly NOT compatible with the new Retina screen. It's all pixelated. After Rendering it looks wonderful. Being someone who is concerned with producing quality, This completely sucks that I don't see what I'm working with in either Photoshop or After Effects. Here's a screenshot of the Content screen and
the whole UI.......
Before you attack Rick and Andrew, you might want to check a few basics.
Your screenshot shows a 33% zoom. How does the text look at 100%?
What are your settings for the viewer quality preferences (which determine whether you see draft of full-quality content in viewer panels)?
I'm using a MacBook Pro with a Retina Display right now, and the text in the Composition panel looks great. I'm nearly certain that you've just got the viewer quality preference set to "Faster" instead of "More Accurate".
Not trying to attack, sorry to both Rick and Andrew if it sounded that way. I'm just trying to find a solution. I changed my viewer quality to "more accurate". The content in the viewer (type in this case) continues to be blurry and pixelated. Its not Really bad but like I said when its rendered it looks great. I just wish I could see the quality that I am going to render while creating. I'm sure Adobe is working on a fix, so the UI is completely compatible with Retina........it's certainly not now and I'm just looking for a quickfix workaround for the time being. Thank you for your response!
I don't think there's a thing wrong, either with your machine or with AE.
In your screen shot, your comp zoom is 33.3% and the resolution is set to half. To confirm all is well, you could set the resolution to third, or you could set the zoom to 100% and the resolution to full.
Looks like operator error to me......
