Good idea but I would rather know how to fix this problem or if anyone has a similar problem, otherwise the program is useless!!

They only look pixaleted when you preview them. The titles will look great when you burn them, imovies DV preview is downsampled.

They won't. This is a known bug in iM3.

From Apple's kbase article #93289

Symptom

A rendered Centered Title is slightly off center.

Products affected

iMovie 3.0 and later


Solution


Add a few spaces to the beginning of each line of text before rendering the title.
