What are you using to get your glow? When I go to Effects>Stylize>Glow, I don't get hard edges even with a large radius.
Thank you Szalam...
I was using a third party (Sapphire) glow effect. I do believe a rasterize effect could still be handy though (instead of having to make a pre-comp for a single layer). BTW I tried to post the idea to the After Effects community, but it was gray-ed out in my choices list. Do you know if this because I am a new member?
Does AE's Grow Bounds effect help with the Sapphire glow?
Thanks for your comment Dave,
I tried Grow Bounds, but am still getting the hard (layer's) edge. I would like to post the idea for a Rasterize effect into the After Effects community, but it seems to be gray-ed out and won't let me select it. Do you happen to know how to post to the AE community?
Wait, you put grow bounds on your text layer BEFORE the Sapphire effect and it didn't work?
