I've run into a peculiar problem.
I've got a text layer with quite a thick stroke (13 pixels). "Line Join" is set to "Miter" (for sharp corners). The problem is the stroke on one letter ("t"), is not sharp, but "cuts off". I know in Illustrator, you have a "Miter Limit" setting to fix this. Is there a way in AE to fix this? I need the text to animate, so I can't use a path of bitmap layer. Any thoughts on this?
I would assume that this is not an AE problem. In the place where it doesn't behave correctly, most likely two nodes in the text contour are very close, resulting in unfavorable calculations. Short of editing the font there would be no way to "fix" this. You can, however, just use the Stroke layer style. If you make the text larger and set it to Inner Stroke, it willl be sharp. Since it is calculated as pixels, not vectors, it would not suffer the problem of the text outline...
Thanks for your quick reply.
I'll try both options!
