  • text ok in viewer, edges slightly breaking up in Canvas.

    Please can someone help.
    I have a title card in the Viewer that looks fine. But when it is cut into the edit, in the Canvas, the edges are slightly breaking up. It looks like the it has been down rez’d a bit.

    Is it a timeline setting problem?

    Thanks in advance for any advice.

    We would love to help but your going to need to provide more info before we can.

    How are you generating the text?
    What are your timeline settings?

    What percentage are is your Canvas set to? Try looking at an even denomination of 100%, like 50% or 25%. Having it set to “Fit to Window” will give you odd results. Or better yet, view on an external video monitor to judge quality.

    I just came to post a similar problem and noticed your post.

    Trying to scroll credits from a long image. Loaded the PSD file into the timeline and it looks fine. Tried a TIFF, JPG, PNG, and all look fine in the viewer, but placed into the timeline, they turn to low-res garbage. Sequence setting is ProRes422 1080P 23.98 (imported image default fps is 29.97 if that makes a difference – don’t know how to change that).

    Here is an image comparison:

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
