Sibeal Hill created a new topic ' blurry pixelated text in NTSC DV format' in the forum. 4 years ago

Hi everyone. I have tried to do some googling on this topic and I can see it's a difficult topic, but I'm making some home videos which I transferred from old VHS tapes in NTSC format. So the video quality is not the best anyway. But when I add titles or lower thirds from FCPx the text is also blurry and pixelated. Both in the viewer and when I publish it.

I have read that it could be to do with the X and Y position of the text, but I can't seem to find this function on the title editor.

Then I have also read that people suggest different codecs for example someone wrote "Secondly try copy>paste the final sequence in either an uncompressed or ProRes final sequence and then render. The text will look a lot sharper that way." But I have no idea where to start looking when it comes to codecs and that kind of stuff. I am still reasonably a beginner in FCPx.

My goal is to make video that can be shared on youtube. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!

Thanks!!!

Thanks BenB and Ronny. I have now got the paragraph title in FCPx, but it still doesn't seem to text wrap. As far as I can see I will still have to choose when to jump to the next line. Is that right?

I find it hard to believe that FCPX has not made a simple paragraph text template!! But thanks for the download, Ronny! For a new Mac user like me, would you be so kind as the walk me through the steps of how I move this download into the proper folder so I can use it. I cannot find the Motion Templates folder...where is that located and how do I copy the folder over there?Thanks!!!

Thanks Ronny! I was afraid of that. I might try QTX.

Thanks again for your reply!

Hey! I'm trying to transfer a lot of precious VHS material to digital, and have bought FCPX. I'm using ADVC110 to capture and the videos import fine directly into my library in fcpx. But because of the time-code breaks in old VHSs, it is a bit messy with many little clips, and I'm concerned if it is the best way to store the raw data. I've read that for storage purposes it can be better to create camera archives of the material first. However, when I've tried that, the archive file is grayed out and in the finder it is 0 bytes. I just really want a safe and secure way to capture, store and organize my raw data before the tapes deteriorate. And am very confused as to which approach is best. Any suggestions would greatly appreciated!
