Which presets are you using?
Is there a Stroke colour set for the text, even if it's invisible?
Is the comp background colour red?
Looks like you're using Layer Styles to modify the look of the layer?
Perhaps something is switched on there in the layer style.
Do you have the stroke layer active, but turned off (visibility)?
Try deleting it from the list of layer styles.
As Andrew suggested, check the the background color. The disturbances look like the dithered areas that you get when compressing to SWF and it uses a transparency color. Failing that, I recommend you render a FLV file with Alpha and import it into Flash. This should avoid the issue alltogether, it may just not look as crisp as the compression will slightly soften everything.
Hello all and thanks for the tips. I really appreciate your help. After having it work sometimes and sometimes not, I definitely checked most everything you all mentioned. I really thought the answer shouuld have been in the areas you all pointed to... but I got lucky and found it somewhere else... maybe this was a newbie thing, but I'm willing to swallow my pride and cough it up...
My file was created from following Creative Cow's "reflection" tutorial step by step... in the tutorial, you "pre-compose" your text layer and create another layer below it. This other layer becomes your reflection.
Here's what was happening:
When I export to .swf, if I am viewing the pre-composed layers in the "comp" viewing area, I will get the red hue around stuff during the render, but not in the preview. If I switch from the pre-composed layers, back to the main layers, and view the main "comp" at the highest level and then render, I get a perfect render... make sense? perhaps it was human error... I just felt that the render would always look like what you are previewing. Make sure you render from the main layers and not while still looking at a pre-composed layer...
thanks again all!
