Sharp QT text becomes blurry when rendered
on Jun 17, 2010 at 8:20:23 pm

I have a QT mov with text in it & the text looks super clean in the Canvas window, but when I render it, the text gets blurry.

I even tried changing my QT video settings in my sequence to uncompressed - still super sharp text in unrendered preview, blurry on render in the canvas window.

Any ideas?

Thx

Set your canvas to 100%. How does it look now?

Thx Shane - that's the problem - looks perfect at 100% in canvas, unrendered. I render it & loses resolution.

If your sequence is NTSC (or PAL) DV, search this forum to read the posts from the previous 53,812 times this question has been answered since the sad beginning of DV.

Before render, the text file was a 16:9 image being shown full rez (was it a screen shot or something?). After render, it has been physically rendered into a 960x720 file, and is being horizontally stretched and displayed as 16:9. It has lost resolution after render. You're working in an anamorphic HD format.

Also, notice how the image has only lost rez horizontally, not vertically, further demonstrating the issue.

Cool, Brett.

But how do I fix that?

Yes, both images were screen grabs.

Work in a true HD sequence. 1280x720z. Why are you working in animation codec? I would work in a 720p pro res sequence.

Animation looked cleaner. I tried 1280x720 but text wasn't clear either. Will check that again.

I don't know if it helps, but the text is from a Camtasia screen recording.

Thx.

Hi Jeff,

I am having the same problem with my text in FCP. Did you figure out this issue? I hate editing in Camtasia so I export all of my grabs in ProRez HQ but they still aren't coming out right after a final render in FCP.

Please help!
