Font Point Size in Legacy Title
on Aug 20, 2019 at 7:35:16 pm

Hi everyone,

I am a bit confused about font size in the title tool. I have notes requesting a font at 'point size 18' for some credits, but when I set the font to 18 the words are barely big enough to read. My sequence is a standard 1920x1080. Is there somewhere else I have to set for the font size to come from the 'point?'

The numerical reference in the title tool is pixels, not points.

Points are a print typography measure. According to my Google search, at typical video resolution of 72 dpi, one point equals one pixel. Another source doesn't reference dpi indicates a point/pixel ratio of .75/1.

Here's a link to a table I found that might also help.

Dell Precision T7600 (x2)
Win 7 64-bit
Adobe CC 2017.1 (as of 8/2017)
256GB SSD system drive
4 internal media drives RAID 5
Typically cutting short form from UHD MP4, HD MP4, and HD P2 MXF.
