      Hello,

      I’m having trouble choosing a font that doesn’t produce jagged edges on w’s, etc. I’m choosing sans serif fonts. My project is 1080p at 24fsp. Does anyone have any suggestions?

      Thanks,

      Amber

      I have no problems with jaggies in Vegas with any of my fonts (TrueType or OpenType).

      What NLE are you using?

      Below is a link to a png file saved from Vegas Pro 8 – Project is 1920 x 1080 and font is Trebuchet @360 points.

      Are you seeing this in the final render or just the preview?

      Thank you for your responses!

      Oops! I should have been more specific. I’m using Avid Media Composer (Academic Version) 5.5.2. My Project is 1920 x 1080, and 24p. My computer is a Macbook Pro, OS 10.6.8. I’m seeing the jaggies after I’ve rendered the titles.

      What fonts have you tried. Personally, I use the font arial bold with good results in Premiere pro.

      Hi,

      2 kind of fonts, the old type was bitmap font and the new type is vector font this include Adobe type face,normally bitmap is limited to 72 points and vector has near no limitation. Arial is a Windows TrueType derived or same as the Helvetica font. No reason to obtain stair look. You can check in your system the font type youuse.

      Regards,

      Since Avid’s 3D DVE was introduced in MC version 5 in 1995, it’s aliased graphics to a point you simply have to go to After Effects for almost anything DVE related. If you are key framnming your text with Avid’s DVE, it’s why you are seeing stair stepping.
