    font looks good in Boris - jagged in host

     I've posted this at the Creative Cow site, too...

    Still using Avid Xpress DV 3.5.  Also use Boris Red 3.04 as a plug-in.

    The font looks great in Boris but after I "apply" it to the host, then render it, it doesn't look "vectored."  It looks jagged.

    I checked with the Boris specialist at Avid and he says that when Red is used as a plug in, the render happens in the Avid editor and not in Red. I think it's related to the yellow/gren settings as in you may be rendering in draft mode.    Can you check that please.

    Marianna -

    You're right that the host application, in this case, Avid, does the rendering.  I don't know what you mean by the "yellow/green" settings...

     How do I check about a codec degredation?

    Re: font looks good in Boris - jagged in host

    That determines what setting you are on.... donttrying rendering in Draft and see if that changes the jaggies.

    Re: font looks good in Boris - jagged in host

     Could you be more specific.  Are you saying "don't" render in draft?  Are you talking about while I'm in Boris?  Boris allows you to view your timeline in a number of settings.  Just before I "apply" the setting to Avid I can either "preview to ram" or "preview to ram at half rate" or "preview to ram at quarter rate."  I've tried each of these previews before "applying" to avid and it makes no difference.  According to the Boris manual, when you're working from the host ap, the draft or (higher quality) settings make no difference when you finally render in Avid.  Is there something else I'm missing...

    Finally - Is it possible that a different mouse could affect fonts in Avid?

    You can adjust your render settings in Avid to HQ or standard quality...to use the effect render (in any given effect dialog) or override and render according to Avid settings...

    Re: font looks good in Boris - jagged in host

    FWIW, I replied to the original poster's other thread on the same topic that there isn't a render quality mode in XDV 3.5. There must be something else that is awry here. I'm curious what this font is though.

    Re: font looks good in Boris - jagged in host

     Well - never could figure why I was getting bad looking text after rendering -even though the frame rates in Boris & Avid are the same and any quality settings from both programs are at their highest.

    However - When I made a qt reference movie and the final dvd, both qt reference & final dvd looked great - no jagged edges.  So, I don't know why I'm suddenly getting jaggy text only when viewing from the Avid timeline.

    thanks -
