text not sharp in canvase
on Nov 16, 2010 at 5:00:51 pm

Hello, I have imported a TIFF of a text graphic from Power Point and it looks very sharp in the Viewer but quite blurry in the Canvas. I have rendered it but it did not help. Tried the Deinterlace, Sharpen, and Unsharp Mask filter but no go as well. This is a DVCPRO interlaced timeline. Any ideas?

Is your canvas size set to exactly 100%?

Also, the viewer shows you the image at it's default resolution, whereas the canvas scales it to, in this case, 720x480. When loaded from the seq. into the viewer, what size is indicated as scale in the Motion Tab? Perhaps it's being blown up many times?

David, you got it! The scale in the canvas was 117%. When I changed it back to 100% it looked great. Thanks for your help big time!
