Please provide a way to enable font smoothing/ anti aliasing. The font rendering seems a bit sharp and kinda of cheep looking.

Are you looking at the viewer in 100% zoom?

Some of the fonts get rendered fairly harshly because of the amount of detail. Generally I avoid this by just rendering titles out of Photoshop or the GIMP. But it would be good if there were options like "smooth" "strong" and "sharp" as the anti-aliasing modes. For most scrolling titles the 'strong/sharp' rendering of Resolve is just too heavy.

One way to see clearly is actually to not zoom in 100%. Generally titles aren't so sharp that they only look good 1:1. Obviously zooming 100% is always a good idea to verify/QC for problems, but the zoomed out result shouldn't look too horrible apart from some scaling artifacts that look more like tearing than aliasing.

If the viewer is in 1:1 mode and there is no text or output sizing, this should show the ideal image. If you see aliasing etc please assist with examples we can review.
