    Text poor quality after Export

    zech3 Level 1

      I'm having some pretty poor quality text rendering after export. The video appears fine otherewise. I am exporting to YouTubeSD not HD, though I wouldn't think that would matter. [?]

       

      I'm pretty new to the complexities of film editing. So, I can't answer much about the video source files other than that they are MP4 converted originally from analog files written to DVD. I wouldn't think that would have anything to do with the titles at all since all text created thru PP Title Editor. [?]

       

      Here's a screenshot of settings. Any ideas?

          Make sure the text is not Serif (with tails) or similar fancy stuff with thin lines. That is the first thing to check.

           

          Thanks

            Sorry- I meant to add this is CS5.5

             

            Jeff- I've been using this same font for other projects without problem. This just started happening on this project. Yes, it is a serif font but no problems before. It's always rendered well [Adobe Arabic].

            Here's a better screenshoht:

            And some screen shots of titles:

             

            BEFORE text rendering problem. From a project last year, this typeface is skinnier but rendered much better!

            AFTER text rendering problem started. This is the current typeface that, even though a heavier typeface, renders horribly!!

            I should add that the titles seem to flicker a bit when transitions are applied to the start or end of title clip.

              I would try a 2 pass VBR encoding. See if that works for you.

                Didn't make a diff, but thanks for the idea. Any other thoughts? You think bit rate could affect text rendering?

                 

                2-Pass VBR:
