Subtitles Drop Shadow
on May 27, 2013 at 8:07:12 am

Hello All:

I am editing a foreign film and adding subtitles to it.

I added drop shadow to the subtitles. FCP default setting was:

Offset 2, Angle 135, Softness 10, Opacity 100.

Is this the standard used in movies? If not, what kind of drop shadow setting would be easily readable for the audience?

I know there is nothing called standard but what are the recommended settings.

an outline is more common than drop shadow.
it's very readable.

[Nick Meyers] "an outline is more common than drop shadow"

I usually go with a 1 pixel outline when creating subtitles in MacCaption or Encore.
