Welcome to the forum.
First, please tell us what the Project Preset is.
Next, please give us a description of the Assets (still images for all?) and their pixel x pixel dimensions.
Are all of your Titles being created in PrPro's Titler? Do you have the Show Video checked, and are doing your alignment that way? If so, give us a bit of detail on your Titles.
I'd also suggest posting a screen-cap showing your Timeline with the CTI (Current Time Indicator w/ the red Edit Line) over one of your Clips and your Title. If you can also show a view of the Titler, with the Show Video checked, that might be helpful.
Then, tell us what Export setting you are using.
Last, this ARTICLE and the attached files might be useful for alignment.
Good luck, and we'll be looking for the answers to the questions posed above,
1. not sure what you mean by "preset". The project settings are:
Capture - DV 1394 -
Video Sequence -
Default Sequence -
2. The dimensions of the stills are 2000x2000, *.png
3.Titles - I do not align them here, I align them in the effects controls
4. Screen Cap
5. Export settings
6. That article is nice, but not what I'm needing. remember, the preview clips shows everything perfectly lined up. but the final export shows all the text being shifted down.
Thanks for the reply, I look forward to a response and I hope these answer your questions.
My only suggestion is try lining up the titles in the TITLER and not with the motion effects.
I would turn OFF Optimize Stills, as that is really a hold over from the AJA boards, IIRC.
I agree with Craig that one should be able to easily align the Title in Titler.
Also, why are you using 2000 x 2000 pixel still images in a DV Project? Are you Panning greatly on a zoomed out still? You don't have Scale to Frame set for those stills, do you?
Sorry about the delayed reply. I turned off optimized stills, didn't seem to change much.
As far as ligning them up in titler, the text, in some cases, has to move. That's why Im using the motion effects.
The reason for the 2000x2000 is only because that's the way I recieved them. It's no big deal to shrink them down.
I don't know what "Scale to frame" means for the imported stills.
So, any other thoughts?
Optimize Stills is a holdover from the AJA cards, IIRC. Turn that OFF.
As for Scale to Frame Size, that takes your larger than Frame Size images, and uses Scaling algorithms to reduce the size.
However, I strongly recommend using the Scaling algorithms in PS to do that work. First, they are better than the one in PrPro, and next, offer much more control, i.e. choices like Bicubic Smoother, Bicubic Sharper, etc. After Scaling to the Frame Size, or a bit more, if one needs to Pan on a Zoomed Out image, then Import into PrPro.
Hope that helps,
So, it seems I finally got it working correct. I change my export video settings to this:
The Compressor - DV[ntsc]
Frame Rate - 29.97
pixel aspect ratio - ntsc widescreen 16:9 [1.2]
Go figure, but that corrected the problem.
Thanks for the help gentleman.
Glad that things are working for you now. Thanks for reporting.
Wow...that's interesting....I think I should have seen something strange about the project settings and your original export settings--
timebase 23.97 - display 30 - 16:9 ( 1:2)...
your new export settings... earlier one was 23.97 ( 0.9 )....
interesting...did you deinterlace for progressive ??
