jit.lcd vs jit.gl.text2d for subtitles


    Mar 25 2011 | 11:37 am
    what are your experiences jit.lcd vs jit.gl.text2d differencies around:
    - quality
    - cpu consumption
    - tweakability
    I'd LOVE to create some borders around my text, for instance instead of using a rectangle background for light movie area (my text is white)
    any ideas? advices? feedback ?

      Well, don't know if you can set outlines with them but what you can do is have a black text in the background and have a slightly smaller white text in the front. This way you've got your outline (good old illustrator trick) One suggestion though; keep it readible, subtitles are meant to be as neutral and clear as possible.
      HTH,
