DVD Quality Enhancement 5: Scrolling Titles

Avivo vs. Purevideo, Round 1: The Radeon X1000 vs. Geforce 7000 Generation
By

Vertical or horizontally scrolling titles can be a challenge for a video processor because the scrolling title is likely created in 30 fps video, while the source material may be 24 fps 2:3 film pulldown.

A successfully processed video will display no interlacing or jaggy artifacts on both the background video and the titles.

Scrolling Horizontal Mixed: out of 10 points

The Scrolling Text tests

Software: 0 points
No scrolling title enhancement for software.

ATI Avivo: 5 points
Avivo does a great job smoothing out the text, but according to the benchmark guidelines they lose points for not smoothing out problems in the background video. In the video there are some artifacts on the guitar strings, so they get half points for this test.

Geforce Purevideo: 5 points
Purevideo does about as well as Avivo here; the text looks really good, maybe even slightly better than with Avivo... but the guitar strings look a little worse.

Scrolling Vertical Mixed: out of 10 points

Software: 0 points
No scrolling title enhancement for software.

ATI Avivo: 10 points
Avivo seemed to fix the text without any background artifacts.

Geforce Purevideo: 10 points
Purevideo also seemed to fix the background text with no background artifacts.
