in iMovie HD 5, all the fonts used in the titles have a slight gray drop shadow on them.

this works fine against black or against an image, but I just created a solid color background for one set of titles (Red with Black lettering) and the results looked rather fuzzy on the final product when viewed on TV after rendering and exporting.

Is there any way to get rid of this slight "drop shadow" that is applied to all the fonts?
And if not in iMovie HD 5, then is there a ver. of iMovie where these drop shadows can be toggled or anything?

    There is no way to get rid of the shadow drop in the titles, but you would probably do better if you tried a different color besides red. It is the worse color to use with titles.
