Title Backgrounds Have Jaggies The quality of the image behind a title in iMovie HD isn't as good as it once was, especially if you burn the movie to DVD. The title looks great, but the background behind acquires jaggies, the stair-step lines along hard edges (Figure B-2). Title Trouble Figure B-2: For some reason, as of version 5.0.1, iMovie HD intro- duces stairstepped, jagged lines in the video behind a title, as shown here before (top) and after. DV and DV Widescreen projects seem most vulnerable. The quantity of jaggies depends on the type of image and movement in the image. At its worst, the problem is distracting. At its best, it may not occur.
