Text Ascenders and Descenders

I have some text (Snell Rounded Black) where the descenders and descenders are cut off.

I don’t see any way to fix it or a preference for improving the output. Is this just a problem with some fonts? Do I need to just pick a different font?

Thanks.

Well, since the software web site offers no tech support, this is my only hope.

I’ve tried two fancy script fonts and both have the tops and bottoms cut off. It’s odd as while in the animation (letters swirling in) the font looks fine. When it’s just static the letters are all cut off.

Thanks for any insight on this!

Hi Bob, I’ve tried it here and again with Snell Roundhand Black some of the extended character shapes get clipped (the decenders in particular). I’m sorry to say that other than choosing another font or swapping these fonts for bitmaps I can’t think of a suitable solution for you. Regards, Tim.

OK. Thanks, Tim.

I can’t sue a bitmap because I used a scatter effect for the letters.

Hopefully, the developer will make improvements in the future.

A scrubbable timeline would be nice. Rendering after every change takes forever only to find something didn’t work and has to be done again…then re-rendered.
