Exporting graphics with text to DVD Studio Pro, text looks lousy
on Dec 19, 2005 at 4:39:46 am

Help,

I have a problem. When I design text with Photoshop, it looks great until I import it into DVD Studio Pro as a menu, then the text looks jagged. I've tried smoothing the text in Photoshop, deinterlacing it (which makes it look worse),
rasterizing it, sharpening it, it all looks great in Photoshop, but terrible when in DVD Studio Pro or on a tv screen.

What is driving me crazy is that one time I accidentally created very smooth-looking, great looking text that looks great on DVD and television, but don't remember how I did it! So there must be a way. I am using Zapfino font, a very thin font I know, and I understand about using a thick font and avoiding angles. Can anyone give me advice on how I can make the font look better on the DVD menu when playing on television? Thanks for any input.

John

Have you tried stretching and blurring it one or two pixels?
