    I know iMovie had this problem, and that it spread across all the DV/movie editing software that Apple made for awhile.

    Try this: Export what you have and play it in Quicktime. Most of the time when that happens it looks bad after a render, but after an export it looks good in the final product.

    I found that out due to trial and error.

    If that doesn’t work, let me (us) know.

    Which titling utility are you using? FCP’s built-in titling or LiveType?
