image script files

I´m using Encore CS3 and I want to import subtitles from image files. I did a test with some TIFF images, I created a Image Script File, but when the subtitles appeared in timeline, they were jagged and its quality is the same as if I had typed directly inside Encore.
How do I get a better quality subtitles? Is there a way to do that?

Image files will yield the same result: it's the fact that in DVD-Video, the subpicture layer is a 2 bit indexed color space. That means it's incapable of anti-aliasing (as we know it), nor shadows, glows, etc.

You can make it a bit more pleasing by using strokes with lower opacity, but whatever you do it won't look as smooth as computer text.

Yes, I can understand your explanation. But I remember that I´ve had watched some DVDs with good quality subtitles, i.e., I would like to know how get this result.
So, what is the advantage of creating Image Script Files, where we have to create a picture file for each subtitle, if the result is the same of the Text Script files?

To obtain the crisp looking subtitles you either run them through a character generator from Ultech/Link Electronics such as the ITV-Injector, DV-2000, DV-3000, HDE-3000 or you import them directly into your edit system.
