Text looks smooth when pausing and "pixely" when playing. How to make the text smooth all the time?

I have a problem with the pixels of the text when playing versus pausing, and especially when the video is in a small frame like on YouTube. The problem especially occurs with tiny text.

I made a video in Premier Pro, and implemented a text.png from Photoshop.

I'd like the text to be smooth (without showing the pixels) and don't differ between pausing and playing.

Below, you can see 1. when the video is pausing (looks good and smooth) and 2. when the video is playing (looks awful with the pixels).

The problem only occurs with the text, not with the video.

Can anyone help me fix this problem? What should I do?

Thank you so much for your help in advance!

Hmm... Once I had the same problem but the next day it was all fine. I really don't know. I don't think the text will be pixelated after you have exported the video so don't worry about that. But sorry I don't think I can help right now.

It became a little bit better as I saved in High Quality 1080p HD instead of any of the YouTube presets.
Do you know what Preset is the best for YouTube Videos?

I recommend exporting Cineform for YouTube.  Choose the 10 bit YUV Preset, found under the QuickTime format.

try to right click on your png text in the project panel, choose modify then interpret footage

make sure the pixel aspect ratio is square pixels, if not check conform to square pixels

under alpha channel conform alpha premultiplication to premultiplied alpha

I can see that both your playback resolution and paused resolution on the monitor are set to 'Full' right ?

are you nesting any of your text layers ?

Hi Martine Sorthe,

Please check your Settings (Wrench) menu and see what you have set for Playback and Paused Resolution settings. You can make adjustments there.

Thanks,
Kevin

geraldf74549494​ Please check both your playback and paused resolutions as Kevin stated before.

Are you working with native Premiere Pro text or imported text ?

What are your export settings ? what are the sequence settings ?

Martine,

Is there a specific reason you are setting your text in a raster format (png) rather than setting your text inside of Premiere with live editable text? I always set my text with the text tool rather than importing a photo of my text. Even though png is supposed to be clear, I would much rather trust Premiere to render native text than interpret a png.

That is just my workflow.
