Font Quality at Large Sizes (RR-1033)

  • Pixelated text may indicate a bad font choice.

    Can you attach a .scribe file?

  • Fernando, there are lots of forums on fonts over the years. We have put the latest updates on a few of them that had recent activity. I'll add those updates here as well now that's it's been picked up again...
    We have a Font Kerning instant answer which was created this year as well as a Fonts that work well in VideoScribe forum where we share our experience and encourage other customers to add the fonts they find work well so you.

  • Thanks Barry, I looked into those posts and they are very interesting. Still there's no definitive way to avoid font pixelation at large sizes, no matter the font, just a workaround I found in the forums but not an actual way to fix the big blurred text (using any font). I agree a list of already tested fonts would be very useful, some fonts doesn't pixelate that much but it's kinda frustrating finding a nice looking font and don't be able to make a large text intro or outro for my project with it.
  • The best advice I can give at the moment would be to find a font that you like and then create an SVG image of the text you would like to use in Inkscape or Adobe Illustrator. We have a blog post that takes you through the steps needed to create an SVG image of some text entitled Scribing Tip – How to get Arabic words to draw well. The technique will work for text in any language.

  • Hey all, just letting you know that we are working a significant overhaul of fonts and this request will be included in that work.

  • We've released v3.6 of VideoScribe this morning which has some big changes to fonts and text, including high resolution on all fonts. 

    Find out more about what's included and also how to upgrade to this version via the v3.6 release notes.
