Blurry/shaky text

Just finished burning my first movie onto a DVD. When I reviewed the DVD, much of the text seemed to be of a low resolution, even some of the photos (lots of shaking and fuzziness). None of this showed on my monitor prior to burning the DVD.
Is there a setting that I need to adjust to get better resolution on the disk?

I found the YouTube presets, much appreciated! The animation is smooth now, but now text and straight edges are jagged (I can't seem to win with this thing...)

  • 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.

  • I have blurry, faded text in Firefox 4 (but not FF 3 or Chrome)

    Here is an example from Youtube. Ever since I upgraded from Firefox 3.6 to 4, my text is blurry and thin and hard to read, it looks terrible. This also happens in IE ever since I upgraded to IE9, but I don't care since I rarely ever use IE.
    Out of desparation I installed Chrome just so I could browse without struggling to read text, and the text is clear and perfect there.
    Can someone please help me get a usable installation of Firefox again? I love the addons and features of Firefox, but not if I can't READ when I'm using it...

    Try to disable hardware acceleration.
    * Tools > Options > Advanced > General > Browsing: "Use hardware acceleration when available"
    If disabling hardware acceleration works then check if there is an update available for your graphics display driver.

  • 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.

  • Blurry Logos/Text

    Finishing up a project and messed up on some chapter markers (entered them in the clips). Corrected that, but now our text and logos come in blurry. We even went to another project and cut and pasted the "Clear" Logo+type, but in the new project it looks horrible. Also, when we imported the logo, it came in Extra large and we had to scale it down. Why is it doing this? Probably a simple fix, but can't seem to figure it out!

    What version are you using? The current version has a user preference that defaults to scaling anything put in a sequence to fit that sequence. So if you put a small logo in the sequence it scales it up. You can switch this off in the prefs Editing panel. Then the image will go into the sequence at whatever size it is.

  • Blurry Menubuilder Text

    Hi, I'm creating a menubuilder project to link several
    different movies together. When I preview the menu, the text and
    tootips are clear. Once I export the project however, the text
    appears blurry and most unprofessional.
    It doesn't matter whether I export to .swf or .exe and it
    also doen't seem to matter what font I use, all fonts come out
    blurry. I've had no such issues with the movies themselves, just
    with this menubuilder project. I'm using Captivate Version 1.01 Any
    suggestions?! Thanks in advance

    Do not export to exe
    OR swf. Export to HTML instead.
    Your problem is probably that the Captivate SWF is NOT
    scalable (as a Flash SWF would be), and since the Captivate SWF
    depends on the HTM for proper sizing information, I'm guessing your
    problem is warping due to the SWF being viewed at the wrong size.
    Just a guess of course.

  • Blurry moving text

    First post on here, I'm new to Premiere. Having issues with the edges of text being blurry/jagged (only if it's moving) when I go to export my video. Thought that maybe it was because I had imported a Photoshop file with text layers but the problem persists even when using Premiere titles. I was intending to export it as H.264 but tried QuickTime with similar results. I also messed with the Maximum Render Quality buttons as well as the "Render at Maximum Depth" in the export video settings. I know the idea for best results is to match export settings to sequence settings which I attempted to do but I'm not sure what the "Upper VBR, 1 pass, Target 10.00 Mbps, Max 12.00 Mbps AAC, 320 kbps" is all about, all of the outputs seem to have more listed than the source.
    Hopefully  I've provided enough information, any help is appreciated!

  • Grainy & blurry color text

    Hi, does anyone know why color text would appear grainy or blurry in print?  Illustrations and black text are perfect, it's just the color text...

    It's a printer problem.
    Is there a way to fix it?
    There may not be. The amount of registration drift may be within the functional tolerances of your printer. (Impossible to judge; no one knows from your photo how large the type is, but it appears small.) A certain amount of paper movement as it moves through a laser printer is unavoidable. The four process colors are not laid down by a single toner drum.

  • Blurry fuzzy text

    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

  • Blurry Bitmap text (no anti-alias) on Button Symbols

    Can someone please explain when making a button symbol using
    Arial then exporting as an .swf why the font exports blurry and not

    first, do you have alias text on or off in the property
    window? second are you scaling the button, third are you scaling
    the movie, fourth are you making sure the text exists at an integer
    x and y location, sometimes texts looks funny when it's place at
    1.1 pixels rather then 1.0, and fifth make sure your eye glass
    proscription is still up to date! all these things could be
    contributing to the blurring of the font.

  • Blurry Motion Text Graphic

    Using Motion 2.0.1 I created one word of text. Then 'replicated' it. 'Repel' it. And have 5 other behaviors added including
    "stretch in" - "subtle light" - 'random glow' - 'gust of wind' and 'roll down.'
    The text is blurry even when the only active behavior is 'repel.'
    How can I make the text look more crisp?

    You mentioned that you made a replicator, using the text as the source. What scale are the replicator cells set to? Just like particles, the replicator takes the source object at its original size (unscaled) as an image and then does all the replicator transforms to it (scale, rotation, etc).
    So, if the Scale parameter for the replicator cells is greater than 100%, you're effectively blowing up an image of the text, which is why it gets blurry. A workaround is to make an object at the largest size you think you'll need it at: in the case of text, that is the font size, not the Scale parameter that is found in the Properties tab.
    Hope this makes sense and/or helps. Good luck!

  • Blurry Windows text - Boot Camp

    Howdy folks, got a quick question -
    I had to install Windows (8.1) and I did so without much problem on my rMBP (late 2013), thanks to Boot Camp. I happened to note that some of the textual content seems "blurry/pixelated".
    I say 'some content' because most of the Windows-based stuff in Explorer, Desktop, etc. seem fine. But text on Chrome, or while installing any software (Windows Prompts) are not 'normal'. Or do I say... Text seems "distorted".
    Is there something wrong with the display?
    On another note, Christmas greetings to those observing! Peace and good health unto us all.

    Hi all, I'm having the same problem, and I doubt it is the High DPI support problem. For eg. an app created in Visual Studio 2013 looks pixelated, even if you change scaling settings for the app, while the ap in Visual Stusio itself looks good.
    Can you please suggets another solution?

  • How do I eliminate shaky text from scrolling credits?

    I have added scrolling credits to a video and the scroll is not smooth.  There is no stabilization or shutter roll mechanism to use with built-in, FCPX text and titles.  So, how do I eliminate the shake from scrolling credits?

  • DPS & InDesign - Blurry/Pixelated Text

    Hi there,
    I've made a scrollable frame within my document, but the text appears blurred and pixelatied on my iPad when using it. The font is Helvetica Reg 12.5 pt. Any ideas?

    Make sure the folio and article are PDF format and at least version 24. Then
    set the scrollable frame to vector in the folio overlays panel.

  • Shaky text when export slides to DVD

    I am using Keynote 3 for my slideshow. When I export the slideshow to iDVD, then import to iMovie to add the music I created in GarageBand then burn in iDVD, some of the text shakes when viewing on my widescreen tv.
    Any suggestions for the text to improve quality or is something malfunctioning when I'm exporting/rendoring/burning the project????
    PowerBookG4   Mac OS X (10.4.8)  

    you could try changing the size of the text, or moving it up or down a pixel or two. Also, what color is the text? Tv's don't like pure white, so if it's white, you might want to make it like 90% (10% grey) instead of white.
