we just changed from Rasterex AutoImage to Autodesk Raster Design 2012 to do some Tiff-Image manipulations.
By now, most of raster Design is very similar to AutoImage except rastering the texts. The ISO8.shx or similar fonts looks ok. A Din6776-TTF-Font does so either. The Problem is the Arial-Font.
Does someone has a hint why Arial looks so bad after rastering it?
(Image is a 400DPI black/white image)
Ok, I will try to explain our problem in another way and with an eTransmit-Attachment.
We do our raster-manipulation in this way:
If you open the attachment you can see 3 texts in arial, din6776 and iso8. Only the iso8 look ok.
The lower three lines are made with RxAutoImage, our previously used software to do raster-manipulations. Textstyle is Din6776 and it looks way better.
I just had the same problem.
Solved it by setting the linetype text eg. iso3098b to the required 6 pixels in the raster pen settings and merged those text styles, then changes raster pen settings to 1 pixel for the arial text styles.
Must have something to do with the fact that arial already has a thickness.
You could also have the arial text as a different color so that you could merge all text at once.
Hope this helps.
