    What image size did you create in Photoshop?

    How did you take the Avid screenshot comparison?

    Did you export a png from your timeline/file?

    For one, if this is created entirely in Photoshop, then you have been working with RGB (0-255) levels. 

    You should change your import from 601/709 (16-235) to RGB (0-255) if you want legal video levels.

    Re: Help on Proper Graphics Import Setting

    It's not at all clear from your screenshot whether your timeline settings are green/green.  It's also not obvious whther the blue field is getting darker because it's semi-transparent over the black bg vs. the grey bg, or whether that reflects an actual gamma shift.

    So, is your issue the softness of the letters, the change in color, both?

    Your image, while appreciated, may be concealing as much as it is showing.

    Thanks for the responses!

    Ok, changing the import color 'RGB' helped, i mean it's sharper but still a bit jagged. I exported a new batch.

    Re: Help on Proper Graphics Import Setting

    Could be field order related that can often present itself as a jagged or jerkry graphic, alternativly it could be that you are coming out of photoshop as a progressive image and importing it into your interlaced project where Avid needs to create the second field.
