Recently been doing a bit of after effects at work and ive been stumped on somthing recently.
Im doing a particle effect animation basically were 2 swirls move around an object, but when i go to render it out the swirls look low quality with straight edges similar to polygons in 3dsmax.
Is there any plugins or technique in aftereffects to smooth this out like meshsmooth in 3dsmax?. I thought maybe increasing the framerate because i read it somewere that it works but i have to keep to 25 for the video.
Heres a screenshot.

Also my second problem is, i need my text to appear behind the fire but to do this i have to move the layer to below the fire layer in the timeline, when i do this the text gets effected by the fire effects and gets a glow.
Is there anyway i can stop the effect layer effecting only select layers?.
