Forgive me if you already know this but in case you dont you can get perfect non aliased pixel fonts at high quality as long as you make sure they are on exact _x/_y coordinates, like _x 50 NOT _x 50.3 and always in multiples of 8 (in terms of font size)
On a final note though the elements of your site are great !! its just a matter of you brigning all the styles youve used together more.
The photoshop elements are actually separated from the movie, pieced together in html and are gif files (main reason for quality degradation). In a previous build, I had randomized backgrounds which were interesting but conflicted with the continuity even more. The gif interface allowed for the rounded corners to be transparent. I'll upload a temp background for now to see the effect.
As for the font and anti aliased fonts, I didn't know that and it's a very good note to remember. The reason I chose to go with low quality setting so that the animation of the grid would run smooth even on older computers. Thats what I meant, by being able to have a font in the low setting and being able to read it. It has to do with the fact that the font is made soley with squares/pixels so when it compresses, the font lines remain similar.
The problem with running on low setting is that fonts get real ugly. It looks like a drunk person writing. But with this font, I found a loop hole
- I'm not sure if there are any other fonts that can do this but it would be interesting to see. I have a few other pixel fonts that look similar to the one I used but even they got a lil distorted...
