    Ok so I recently just compressed my project and burned it to DvD and some titles are just not as crisp as they should be. Here’s the rub, In the beggining of this edit I designed ONE title and since then just duplicated it, gone into text controls, and changed the name’s and positions.

    It’s simple Text over two semi-transparent colors with a small icon upper left.

    My FCP settings are for DV-NTSC (found under easy set up, because were not shooting in HD yet)

    I’ve tried bringing them all into motion, re-creating them there and saving but it doesn’t seem to help.

    Whats really throwing me is that some of the tittles are fine while others are not and there really doesn’t seem to be any rhyme or reason as to why.

    Any help would be greatly apreciated.

    Thank You.

    Use the search function and look for my Weiss DV. You’ll find about a zillion of my explanations about the DV codec, color space, and the impact of interpolation on titles and graphics.

    Bottom line – go to Sequence>>Settings and change the compressor to ProRes 422 and re-render the sequence.

    Yeah That helped a lot as well, that and went through them all and made sure the verticle position was an even number as someone else suggested, made a world of difference. Thank you for your time.
