Hi, Anyone with ideas how to solve this? The black text is generated in Boris Efx via Media 100 suite version 1.6. Working in SD. Here it just looks fuzzy but in quick time, preview, Compressor, it looks "aliased", text edge degenerated, pixelliated. The backdrop is generated in AE from Photoshop files and these are good.

I've been dealing with this for a long time now, even in earlier v.8.

One thing you can try, is to place (position value) this text at a «rounded value» (no decimals) on the odd or even field (depending, probably, on your format PAL or NTSC). I think, if I remember, NTSC would require and odd value on the vertical (y) (ex. Position y : 399.00). You can also be aware of codec compression. Is your title fine when you look at it unrendered? Try uncompressed to see if it doesn't help.

Difficult to see in this image due to the compression. Could you post a timeline file somewhere showing the problem?

Check to see if de-flickering is turned on in the Boris project settings. I've noticed what Eric mentioned about positioning txt with whole numbers only too.

Your Media100 codecs and compression levels will affect the rendered image.

When you export your QuickTime movie, the codec & compression used for the MOV will affect it further. If you enlarge the MOV beyond the actual size during playback, the image quality will be diminished.
