If I had to take a guess, I'd say it's maybe because you accidentally set your layer to draft mode, or maybe because you're trying to manipulate text that's already within some precomp. There's a whole bunch of reasons why text can become pixelated, especially in a program like AE, but it's impossible to know for certain without actually seeing what's going on.

Could you post screenshots of your workspace and composition settings?

Looks normal.

It looks like that because your composition is tiny (110x110), so, naturally, anything created in or imported into that composition is going to appear pixelated when scaled up or viewed from close. And based on your first screenshot, it looks like your viewer is zoomed in a lot, so try setting your zoom back to 100% to have the actual view of your project. It shouldn't look pixelated, then. I'd also recommend setting your future compositions' resolutions to something higher, like 400x400. It's a lot easier to work with and you can always resize later on, if needed.

Also, try upping your frame rate to something like 24. 8 is going to look very choppy for most animations, unless that's what you're going for.

well i was making it small so i can use it on ttg to get it under 100kb because i don't know how to compress big files but thought it was because i was zoomed in its hard to see if you aren't zoomed ill try to make a bigger one tomorrow

If you're working on illustrator when designing please remember you're designing in vector based images (key difference between pixel is that, pixels are images made up of loads of pixels whereas Vector graphics are mapped out using mathematical equations which calculate where the edges of the shapes sit in relation to one another.) meaning it will come out much smoother depending on the dimensions/artboard sizes. For example if you are wanting to design an logo I prefer designing on 1000x1000 then once it's complete, I downscale or use an image resizer so that I can design & see the image before it's uploaded for social use.

Edit: Once you have saved said image/design, as it's rendered it will become a pixel based image (png/jpeg etc) while in design, it will remain vector. The more you zoom in, there'll be no pixelation. Other than placed images.
