    anti-aliasing with Ripple Distort

    johnnymabie

      Is there a trick to using Ripple effect without getting this nasty aliasing on the edges? Maybe some way to "increase geometry" or smooth edges I don't know about? I need the edges to be hard/not feathered, but I need to get rid of this aliasing. Screenshot attached below*

       

      I'm distorting a shape layer, so rasterization is not a factor.

      I've tried making the comp massive and tiny, all result in the same amount of aliasing, which leads me to believe the aliasing is from the math that Ripple is doing, not from the pixels within. (Comp in screenshot is 2000x2000)

      If I reduce the intensity (wave height / width) the aliasing is reduced, but that doesn't help since these are the settings I need.

       

      Any creative ideas are much appreciated!!
