I am new to Adobe Premiere Elements and am struggling to add some smooth scrolling titles with a plain black background. It makes no difference whether I select any one of the text animation presets or the roll/crawll options. To provide background and details for analysis, I have listed out some criteria and settings as below:-
I am sure this must be something very simply. Any suggestions gratefully received.
There is no such thing as a hi-def DVD. Even if you use hi-def video as your source, your video is only 720x576 -- roughly the equivalent of a 640x480 image.
In other words, when you are watching it on your computer, if you're looking at it full-screen or even more than, say, 1/4 of your screen size, you're looking at it way beyond its resolution.
DVD video is also interlaced while computer video is not. So DVD video tends to look line-y on a computer.
Watch your DVD on your DVD, played from a standard DVD player, and it should look fine.
Do not mess with field options, interlacing or anything else. You'll just mess things up. Just make sure your project settings match your source video and then burn your DVD.
I did not make it clear that I had burnt a DVD and played on the TV, with the issues I described.
For the sake of clarity, my videos work fine, what I am trying to do is add some simple text titles.
This sounds like a similar problem which I enquired about some weeks ago. I referred to it as 'flickery' scroll/roll, as though the field order was wrong. Nobody came up with a solution so I did some digging around. In my view, Adobe 'broke' something in PrEl9 onwards. I reinstalled v8 and 9 to my PC and this 'fault' is not apparent in v8 but IS in v9 and v10. If I create a simple scroll/roll against black in v10 and then load it into v8 - the fault shows in v10 but not in v8. I have not found a solution in v9/10, other than to use v8 for projects which include moving text. (I am in PAL land (UK)m working with DVPAL 25fps). Good luck! Alan S.

Thank you. I don't have the luxury of reverting back to earlier problems, but good to know I am not alone.
I tried Steve's suggestion of changing the font and would agree that it does help, so thanks for all the advice.
