Subtitle Font quality


drbgaijin

Question

Sorry, here I am again.

This time it is about the quality of subtitles.

 

I have been playing around with different fonts, different colours, different sizes, with and without outlines, with and without background lower thirds.

 

No matter what I do I seem to be getting very blocky results.

The DVD authoring I used before I decided to go for DVDit Pro was DVDLab Pro. I feel that fonts there were much sharper and legible.

 

Can anyone with more experience and success give me some tips on raising the quality of my subtitles?

 

Regards,

Douglas

In a partial answer to my own question:

 

I just took a half hour to look at the subtitles on different commercially produced DVDs I have.

 

I was surprised.

I didn't realise how blocky even commercially produced DVD subtitles are!!

 

So it looks like the quality from DVDit is pretty standard :)

 

But one question remains:

 

Do you have any suggestions as to best fonts to use.

 

I have had suggestions about Verdana and Trebuchet.

Any other ideas?

 

Regards,

Douglas
