Avoid resizing of subtitles idx/sub on playback

Is there a way to avoid resizing of subtitles (idx/sub) with VobSub or ffmpeg integrated subtitles ?
I mean if I encode a movie in a lower size and the resize up upon playback to the original size, subtitles gets resized and somehow ruined (al least not same quality).

This is because I can't get VMR7/9 renderless and MPC subtitles working well.
In this case ( when I play subtitles with MPC VMR 7/9 renderless mode ) the subtitles are ok.
They are not resized bad. But I'm not getting smooth playback. I'm working on this tearing problem anyway.

I've fixed the MPC tearing problem with MPC "Lock back-buffer before presenting" setting.
Now the video play smoothtly with VMR7/9 renderless.
That leaves me with properly resized subs in MPC.

But anyway I'd like to know how to display properly resized subtitles with VSfilter/VobSub/ffdshow in any other DirectShow player.
I suppose if I encode to a smaller size and then playback, then somehow the subtitles (idx/sub) get resized down by the decoder to match the smaller size.

When I resize up with the player the whole image is resized up and subtitles lose quality.

Does that make any sense ?

i dont think u can avoid resizing but you can edit the idx file to decrease the scaling.

Never thought of that. I'll give it a shot.

default values should be at 100% for x & y.

ffdshow integrated subtitles doesn't pay attention to scale in idx file.
Well it doesn't pay attention to "time offset:" or "delay:" either.

MPC seems to use the scale tag, but subtitles there are fine in the first place....

I really don't get this ... is there any encode to a smaller size going to get distorted subtitles upon playback in original size with ffdshow subtitles ?

I didn't have the time to test DirectVobSub ...
