  1. Hello guys,

    I have a question related with subtitles, I do the conversion fine but I have a problem with subtitles, on the preview button they appear in a perfect quality but after converting avi to dvd, the subtitles loose a lot of quality.

    Anyone knows why they loose quality ?

If the used font is thin, like a standard Arial, this is more noticeable. A commercial DVD will often have a semi-bold font, to lessen this effect. The enlarged subtitle below shows this on a commercial title. Don't expect better results with selectable subtitles.
