    Title+: Text Quality Better?

    So everyone here knows how soft and not-awesome both of the old text tools were.  My question for those who have used the new tool: Is text now sharp and like the results from After Effects?  Or do they still look bad?  I never understood why the Avid titles always looked night-and-day in quality to After Effects, but regardless hopefully this has been fixed?

    Can't tell you abot the new title tool.

    The softness of the old tools was a warranty against flickering on CRT screens. Worked very well.

    Knejmann - not really.  All that does is to turn off anti-aliasing, which DOES make the titles look sharper, but not really better.  You do need some managed anti-aliasing, which is why this is turned off by default.  

    George - that is good to hear!

    Re: Title+: Text Quality Better?

    But has someone managed to use title+ in interlaced HD projects? All I experienced (and some others here in the forum) is that in interlaced projects the title+ only produces one field of the title. Making it useless. And no change if you render the title, export it, playback... it stays always the same.

     

    No problems in progressive projects, there everything looked fine. Is title+ only supposed to be used in progressive projects?
