So, I'm not a compositor, I only dabble a little, but I'm helping out a friend to create an end roll credits for his documentary short. We got a great vertical roll sequence ready. This is 2K, and he's getting it printed on film as soon as we're done. However, when I export this to pretty much any video format, I get some amount of flickering on the text. Typeface is neither too thin or too thick (Optima 24px at 2K)
I've done some research, and got a mixed bag of answers. Some people say we have to use a pixel/second speed that is numerically compatible with either NTSC or PAL. However, this isn't just NTSC, it's also going to film... Do we need two separate credit rolls?
I've noticed the flickering gets nastier if we shrink the video player window. However, the same does not happen if I'm playing a Hollywood movie, even in tiny 640x480 windows and smaller. Is it typical to blur out text on credit roll? I'm experimenting with Gaussian at 2.0, but I think it's too degrading.
All we got is AE, btw. Any help appreciated!
