Blurry fuzzy text

Hello,
I'm having an interesting problem with text. Using a slide
from the Captivate 2 sample movie, titled Soft-Skills Sample.cp,
when I type new text onto one of the slides in a transparent text
caption it looks blurry when I play the movie. However, when I type
new text onto that same slide in a different text box and include a
bulleted item, the text looks much clearer when I play the movie.
Why is does this occur. I am interested in knowing because I would
like to keep the text as clear as possible. Any ideas are
appreciated. I can even send a sample slide if anyone is interested
in seeing the problem first hand. Thanks.

Hi Kelly
There are essentially two different ways to "fix" the fuzzy text. If it's a one off, you may add a line or three at the bottom of the Caption. Then configure the bottom line with a bullet. After that, size the caption so you don't see the bullet.
Or, if you want to influence all transparent captions, click Edit > Preferences > Project > SWF Size and Quality and clear the Anti-alias Transparent Captions option.
Keep in mind that this may also be affected by the Windows settings that are configured. Specifically, an option called "font smoothing". If Font Smoothing is enabled on the PC used to edit and publish the Captivate, it also causes another type of Anti-aliasing to occur that is unrelated to what you see in Captivate.
Cheers... Rick

  • Windows 8 Blurry/Fuzzy Text

    Hi everyone,
    I recently installed Windows 8 and i noticed that the screen puts a lot of strain on my eyes compared to Windows 7. It seems like the screen/text is blurry/fuzzy a bit putting strain on my eyes. It is not as crisp as it was in Windows 7. Almost too powerful?
    Anyone else experiencing this issue?

    I bought an Asus laptop with a 1920 x 1080 resolution 15.6" screen and windows 8 and I find the screen is tiring. The laptop has an i7-4700HQ cpu with onboard gpu and a separate nVidia gpu for higher demand games and applications.
    There is some Eye strain with this laptop. I have suspected:
    1) the small text as I am entering presbyopia world at 44 this year, or;
    2) perhaps it is the pwm way that led backlights are controlled in lcd screens.
    3) I've heard windows 8 and newer text is problematic.
    I do change the scaling of the text in windows on the laptop, and in apps like Google Chrome and IE, but that does not worsen anything. Scaling isn't worse, it only makes things bigger and easier to read, which seems to help, but I still get tired looking at
    the laptop screen. I have Clear Type on and without it, things look worse. I have tried various brightness levels. The text on the laptop seemed to look nice at first. I thought it looked "smooth", perhaps because of the high resolution of the screen
    (it is non-reflective matte). I suppose that is because of the higher resolution. In reality though, I find I am straining to focus on it. It seems oddly soft.
    What I don't understand, is why is it when I connect my older 17" lcd monitor to the laptop and use that as the only display, the text in windows 8 on that monitor is also blurry, and worse than it was when I used the 17" lcd display with my AMD64 desktop with
    XP Pro.
    Is it the display card or windows 8? Not sure what to do.

  • ITunes 10.6 store blurry/fuzzy text?

    I am using Windows 7 X64 SP1 with the latest updates from Microsoft.
    I am currently using a Nvidia GTX 460 graphics card, with the latest Nvidia drivers.
    I have tried repeatedly to reset iTunes store cache, emptied Windows temp files, does repair options on both iTunes as well as Quicktime.
    I have also tried resetting both ClearType (including trying it turned off completely), and reset video card driver settings.
    I have tried to re-install both iTunes and Quicktime. I even uninstalled iCloud, and Safari. Still no effective change or improvement in any of those cases.
    Yet, the problem still remains. Many times when I try to browse the iTunes store, the text is very blurry and fuzzy and difficult to read. Sometimes the text becomes completely unreadable.
    Anyone else have similar experiences?
    Anyone know of a workaround, or should I just delete both iTunes and quicktime, and go back to iTunes 10.5 until their is a fix? It all started with the latest iTunes update that supposedly changes how it displays artwork and things. I can't tell any real difference between 10.5 and 10.6 in the case of artwork, but the display of text is getting very frustrating.

    Ha! Issue solved. The track not showing the arrows was a PDF in iTunes. All is well.

  • Video looks Blocky, Blurry, Fuzzy in AE (1280X720 29.97fps)

    Im trying to make a montage of gameplay I have recorded of myself playing PS3 the files are .m2ts, so im using Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5 to cut the video into clips so I could then export them into AE (After Effects).
    So it can make it esier to work with other than cuting the video in After Effects this way I have all my clips organized the way I want.
    The way im doing that is by going over to Export --> Media --> with these settings Format: QuickTime Video Codec: Photo - JPEG Quality: 100
    Now I open the rendered .MOV file using Windows Media Player and everything looks flawless nice video quality is not gone.
    So then comes the AE part now my clips are ready to be mastered and added effects to so I go into Import --> File --> and choose my .MOV file which I have exported from Premiere Pro
    But for some reason my video looks Blocky, Blurry, Fuzzy real low quality which is not what I want I have it set on Full and yet it looks horrible.
    It looks like AE is having trouble opening the video properly or something in the settings is wrong but from my point of view the composition matches everything from the clips: 1280X720 29.97fps
    Here is the picture of how my video looks on After Effects as you can see the text is wierd looking and in the settings you can see I have it on 100% and Full
    This next picture below is how it looks on my Windows Media Player as you can see everything looks way nicer
    Now this last image is the settings that come up on AE so that you can see my video has the right settings
    If anyone can help me out with this I would really appreciate it I know there has to be a solution out there!
    Thanks in advance

    I recommend you read this for starters and then work your way through thze AE help, including the topic relevant here.

  • Cs6 3D axis widget showing up blurry/fuzzy

    My 3D axis widget was showing fine( solid, clear, and visible in front of the mesh I was working on), but now It has started to switch between normal and Blurry/Fuzzy( as if it is sitting behind the mesh and the whole scene). It is very difficult to see sometimes and even more s to access it. Does anyone know of this problem,  and if so, how t correct it? Also any troubleshooting advice would be helpful too.

    You probably have updated/ changed something in the driver. Undo those changes and everything will be back to normal. Otehr than that you could be working at a document size you haven't worked before or invoked some setting or tool you never used before that may trigger the behavior because it's beyond your graphics chip's limited capabilities...

  • Blurry/fuzzy fonts on external display (Dell 2209WA)

    Hi, I recently bought a Dell 2209WA and I'm not too happy with how the fonts are displayed on it. All the fonts seems blurry/fuzzy/jagged.
    I have tried to change the sharpness of the display as well as the font smoothing style(I get best results on Medium) in OSX. It gets a little bit better with these settings than with the defaults but far from good.
    I'm running the display on a black MacBook through DVI, native resolution 1680 x 1050 @ 60 Hz.
    Anybody else with this problem?

    I'm not sure if my problem is related, but I'm also connecting my MacBook to a Dell LCD panel via the mini DisplayPort-to-DVI adapter and I'm getting weird on-screen artifacts and intermittent flickering.
    There's a known problem if you're using the mini DisplayPort-to-VGA adapter and Apple has provided a firmware update to fix the problem. If you're using that (and connecting to your Dell monitor via an additional VGA-to-DVI dongle, then you might want to grab the update.
    But as far as I know, there doesn't seem to be a solution for the DVI adapter.

  • Blurry/Fuzzy Videos

    My exported work is turning out very blurry/fuzzy. For the web, I was advised to use the export settings
    Format: h.264
    Preset: PAL DV Widescreen High Quality
    This is just to find out if there is a similar or an equivalent kind of setting when exporting to tape for TV for a sharper quality videos.

    Yes, these are DV-AVI's
    The blurry/Fuzzy is as seen on TV when broadcast by the TV channel, even though the picture quality is fine when I play it on TV via the camcorder at work.
    Initially I thought the blurry pictures were from the channel/station until I realised my cameras (Sony HVR-Z5 Camcorder), though not the best for broadcast is of better quality than that of some of the other programmers who don't seem to be having this issue.
    I'm wondering if there is something more I could do.

  • Blurry/Fuzzy isight

    My isight is very very blurry compared to earlier shots i've taken, I've cleaned the surface of the lense and it appears clear. However the pictures i'm now taking are much blurrier than previous. I'm wonderin if it's possible to clean the inside of the lense.
    Thnaks

    Nope, Scott TD,
    Unless you are an Apple-Authorized Service Provider (AASP), you cannot clean inside your MacBook Pro without endangering your warranty. There are no user-serviceable parts of iSight. Contact Apple or your local AASP if you think your problem is internal.
    You can try the relevant suggestion for built-in iSight in Apple's How to Troubleshoot iSight first if you like.
    One other possibility is that you are trying to take very different pictures. Built-in iSight is a fixed focus camera. If the pictures you consider "Blurry/Fuzzy" are of much closer or much more distant subjects than the acceptable images you made, you may be outside the limits of your iSight's Depth of Field or Hyperfocal Distance. Some techniques, such as adding more light, can help in certain circumstances. We may be able to offer other suggestions if you post details of how current and previous subjects differ.

  • Blurry fuzzy PDF

    Why do i get blurry fuzzy prints of PDF forms on my Deskjet 3050 since i moved to Win 8.1 (i didnt happen with Win *, so it seems a software prob)?  I see that it is a recurrent problem for various users but nothing is done by HP nor Adobe to find a true software solution. I tried their ideas: reloading ALL software, usin "print image", turning on and off, e-print and regular... all of this to no avail. I now think of getting Canon or Epson

    Hi Olivierjeand,
    Do you face the same issue printing the forms on any other printer as well?
    Try printing to Adobe PDF printer first and then print the generated pdf to the regular printer and check.
    Regards,

  • PDF Text Blurry Fuzzy... but only on one machine...

    I could really use your assistance. When viewing a PDF, one user can see the PDF text with great clarity, but the same PDF viewed by other users, the text appears fuzzy / blurry. I've tried to massaged about every Preference I could (within Acrobat) and through Windows 2003, but nothing worked.
    The machines (corporate image) are (should be) identical as is the hardware.
    Has anyone successfully resolved this issue?

    Thanks for your help.
    I'm using Aperture 2.1.4, sorry I should have mentioned that in my original post.
    I've installed the RAW Compatibility Update nonetheless, but no joy.
    I did a consistency check on the database and nothing came up. Then I did a rebuild and it almost worked. Luckily, I did this on a copy of the library. It removed most of my images from my library, but those that remained (which were a seemingly random subset of my whole library) were fine.
    I'm now making another copy of the library from the Time Capsule
    It's strange that it would be a problem with the database if it works fine on my MBP, don't you think?
    I'm out of ideas!

  • Blurry or Fuzzy Text & Headings???

    I use Acrobat Professional 7.1 and it has worked and printed properly until the last couple days.  Something has recently changed and now my printing is blurry...
    When I receive a pdf and go to print it out, the preview looks normal. When I print, if there is a logo (business letterhead), it now prints blurry with a bunch of rectangular boxes forming the text.  In some cases the text prints out normal, and other times it prints out fuzzy.  Please see examples attached.
    I have tried numerous things following the Acrobat Help menu's but nothing seems to work.  Any help would be appreciated!

    Well it is inevitable that as the camera dollys in to the text the text will begin to pixelate as it gets larger. You can mitagate this to some degree using the camera parameters, specifically the angle of view and near and far planes. These allow you to control how large the text becomes before it disappears from view. You can also use the sharpen filter to help keep the text sharper as the camera zooms in on it. It really is a matter of playing with the parameters to get a good result. You might also find the near and far fade camera controls helpfull as a final tweak to the text.

  • Blurry / fuzzy screen text / fonts

    Hello
    I have had my MacBook Pro for 3 days. I find the screen fonts are not very clear or sharp. Text appears quite fuzzy and blurry all the time, e.g. when viewing web pages, reading the help files, or even now - the text on this message I'm writing right now looks fuzzy. Also, the smaller the text, the fuzzier it gets making it very hard to read. I have tried turning off 'font smoothing' in System Preferences/Appearance, but it doesn't seem to make any difference.
    Does anyone know of any solutions to this problem? I'd be really grateful for your help.
    Thanks

    If this is your fist Apple computer and your coming from a PC. Then you may notice a difference. Apple uses a slightly different way of smoothing fonts on LCD screens. Some prefer Microsoft's way and some like Apple's. I do know especially if your using Firefox and not Safari the fonts appear even worse. I have found that too high of brightness level can sometimes make this even worse. So try lowering the brightness level some.

  • Text on my screen is blurry/fuzzy

    hello. i accidentally hit a key (not sure which one) the other day, and then i noticed that my desktop background had changed from my customized background to the default blue Mac screen. no big deal, i just changed it back to the picture i had up before. but ever since then, the text on my screen has looked blurry. its a subtle difference but it's definitely noticeable, and a bit irritating to my vision. i tried adjusting the font text smoothness using the system preferences - appearance function, but nothing has helped. any help???
    thanks,
    nada

    It sounds like the resolution may have accidentally been changed. Check in Displays preferences. It should be set to 1280 x 800.

  • Is there a way to save a table in Photoshop (that was created in InDesign) without fuzzy text?

    I am trying to save a table in Photoshop that was created in InDesign for web use. When I save it as a png (can't save as pdf or jpeg due to limitations with our company's website), the text appears fuzzy (pixelated?). Is this because the table is getting flattened/rasterized?
    Is there a different adobe product that can be used to avoid this happening? The company who has built our website has a style editor that has limited capabilities. We have tried using the website's editor to create the tables; however, the editor lacks the flexibilty and user-friendliness that comes with InDesign. That is why we opted to create the tables in Indesign.
    In order to upload the table into the editor, the file must be saved as a png, so that is why we are creating in InDesign and then saving the table in Photoshop.
    Any ideas?
    Thank you for the help!
    Tracy

    Thanks for your help!
    Just to clarify, are you suggesting going through the export process while in Indesign? I did that and saved the table as an EPS file, then proceeded to open it, trim, and save as png in Photoshop. I noticed it lost it's white background when I reopened it in Photoshop; the table appeared with a transparent background (which isn't a big deal). When I uploaded the png in the website it doesn't appear to be as blurry, so that did help.
    Thank you for the suggestion!
