As for the case, actually, after you load the video to the program, it will be compressed to a lower resolution as 512*288 to set the preview window, therefore, the text size will be smaller if you select a higher resolution as the output. And I'm sorry that this can't be fixed at the current version. But we are keeping on making great efforts to enhance our program's quality and continue to release new versions to advance our program's performance.
