Hi

I'm creating open captions (burned in) on a project in premiere pro CC. I am finding it hard to display text that looks nice visually as the text has very jagged edges. Are there no aliasing options like there are for titles ? The lack of options seems crazy. I tried using a blur effect to soften the text but this seems to behave a bit weirdly, there is a threshold before the blur has any effect at all and then it is too strong.

 

Someone suggested creating the subtitles at twice the size, and although this is a bit of an odd work around for something so basic, my captions are all done and I can no longer change the format size (the reason why this limitation is in place is beyond me)

 

Anyone have a good work around for making premiere captions nice and smooth (the same way any other program less than 25 years old can...)?

 

thanks!!

Regarding the topic of this thread, the PR 2021 caption workflow uses the graphics text engine, and burn in quality is good.

 

Here is the user guide:

There is a short video on that page.
