Tutorial: Text Interpolation or Making it look better when there is motion


Recommended Posts

Like the title said, when text are used along with some motion effects, sometimes it will look choppy? (Please give me a word for this) and leaves some short after images. To fix that, set the text background opacity to 2 or 1, I prefer 1. Then switch to text background rather than editor background or something else (this options is a drop down box above the text background opacity option which is usually closest to the top of the text input box). Either directly pick the color white, or pick a dominant color in the background (this can be done using the tint tool). The text should now look better when doing motion effects and the background should not / slightly be tinted.

Thanks for the suggestions.  Is it 'choppy' in preview, in export, or both?

Speed of text and export frame rate may make a difference.

Submit a project that demonstrates the issue and someone may have better suggestions.  Just follow these simply steps carefully...

  •     Back up --- With your project on the timeline, click on MENU at the top-left.  Click FILE|BACK UP PROJECT FILES TO FOLDER.  Choose a folder and SELECT FOLDER.
  •     Upload ---  Use a free server - Google Drive, MS OneDrive, etc.* - to upload the saved, numbered FOLDER.    Do NOT upload the individual VPJ or export file. 
  •     Get link --- Get a public link.  If using Google Drive click GET SHAREABLE LINK. If necessary change "restricted" to "anyone with the link can view" 
  •     Share ---     Click COPY LINK | DONE.  Paste that link here, or click the folder at the top-right of this forum to message it privately to me.  It won't be shared.

          *    Before uploading, right-click the folder, click PROPERTIES.  Look at the File Size to confirm that it's not too big for the free space on the server.

Well it's not exactly choppy as in movements of the text but the edges of the text shape (assuming how the system works is just rasterizing text like in MS Paint). Using my method it somehow fixes it and anti aliases the edges making it not look jagged.
