The enormous technical problems involved are discussed on the web site:
adamwilt.com "Video Tidbits", "Character Generators & Titling" I wish
I was smart enough to fix it. Tried everything except voodoo.
Yes, it helped but not very much. also resample. If I render it with
the mpeg codec set to progressive scan and best quality
it works pretty good. This is with
20 font, red, bold. When I say "pretty good" that means there are some
very suttle variations which most people probably would be happy with as I.
Unfortunately, I must render to interlace scan, which is horendous,
but not unusable. This noise modulated effect should be kept as an option
but I still have to have the normal steady rolls.
My next try will be to render it to progressive scan, bring it back on
the timeline then render it to interlace.
Keep in mind that interlaced footage is not going to look right on a progressive display (such as your computer), since it's designed and rendered for an interlaced device (like your TV). Likewise, progressive footage that looks great on your computer will not look as good on your TV. Hopefully you are making your judgements based on the final output device that your presentation is designed for. And please, don't ever expect interlaced footage designed for TV, even when displayed on TV, to *never* flicker -- flicker is pretty much inherent in the design of TV <g>. I see it all the time on top-quality productions, particularly on sharp edges and credits.
slow credit rolls with thin lines will flicker because of the scan lines as the tv traces the odd and even lines. Been that way since the beginning of time...or when tv came out. Choose your fonts carefully, the speed appropriately.
Contrast and transparency level make a big difference too.
So play with that and things can move from bad to good.
Red bold titles? Not the best choice of color for quality.
The Font you are using also can cause havoc. Arial is used most often for quality.
