In the Properties window, when the text is selected, is the anti-alias setting on "anit-alias for animation"? I know I have had an avalanche of text issues because the pull down menu for the anti-alias was set to the previous project's settings. If I had to guess I would say that it is currently set to "Bitmap Text(no anti-aliasing) or is using some custom setting. Try playing with these to see what results come around.
I have noticed that vector based artworks will look blurry when you use the zoom feature in Flash. Remember that the vector image can be expanded infinatley by re-configuring the mathematics that create it. When the image in Flash zooms it is expanding the size of the pixels. It will only re-configure the math when you use the Transform functions. InDesign and Illustrator will go through the trouble of doing the math if you have the display settings on the correct mode.
Thank you for your reply. I tried all textfield settings using antialias for animation, readable, custom embedding with sharpness and thickness,
but it did not result in a sharp font.
Try the following steps,
Create a textfield, and type some text in it. Convert it to a movieclip and give it an instance name.
Now with code you can set it's rotationY for example to 40. As you can see the text is blurred and does not seem to look like a vector font.
Or you can use the 3D rotation tool to rotate the text movieclip, with the same blurred result.
I found a example on flashandmath.com
Here you can see that the font is sharp, so i will have to study it on how he did it to get a sharp font.
Hi, thanks for your reply. But this result in of resetting all of it's 3d property's ..so
when i have a clip with text inside and i would say: myclip.rotationY = 40; and then myclip.transform.matrix3D = null;
Then it is not in 3d space anymore, and the rotationY is also set to 0..
I am trying to get the font to look like a sharp vector font when using any of it's 3D properties. Untill now i havent found a solution yet.
Perhaps this is only possible in Papervision?

This is the only solution i found for this issue.
