Make any regular text rounded (not circular)

5 posts in this topic

This simple quick effect might be useful in case you want rounded edges for a font that basically is not rounded.

Needed plugin : Overblur

  • Open a new canvas and/or add a new layer (CTRL+SHIFT+N)
  • Click on :TextTool: (T hotkey) and choose a regular font. I took Segoe UI at size 36 for my example
  • Disable anti-aliasing
  • Type some text then press Enter to finish
  • Duplicate the layer (CTRL+SHIFT+D)
  • Effects :RightArrowBlue:Blurs :RightArrowBlue:Overblur

  • Apply the effect and merge down the layer :MergeLayerDown: (CTRL+M)
  • Play with values to get different results (it varies according to the font size)

The Outline object plugin by BoltBait or the one by pyrochild can do similar effects in a single layer. Simpler and faster, but results may slightly differ.

 

(Note to admins : there seems to be a problem with the antialiasing emoticon, even when the bbcode is manually edited, images are forced into the emoticon format. "AntiAliasingDisabled" appears twice in the emoticon page)

This has been on the back burner for a while. Mea culpa

 

I'll spend some time on it this weekend and see if we can find a solution.

Well, I think at this level I would call it more a kind of advice than a tutorial because of its simplicity, but beginners may not think about this easy solution. As a typesetter in a fansub team, this for example is nearly impossible to do in aegisub, although it would be useful for a plenty of fonts.
 
Thanks.
 
(Note to admins bis : italic forces bold form actually)
