Text anti-aliasing in FCP

Hello, I'm laying down text on an uncompressed 10bit sequence with 10bit footage. I am wondering what the best way to apply text is. I am seeing anti-aliasing of "steps" on the text I lay down. Is FCP text the best way to go or should I try something like LiveType or Illustrator to get the best quality out of the text?

Or is this all a monitor/playback issue that doesn't not let me see the smooth text? Thanks for any info!

The best possible way to input text is to create and import it from Photoshop. Much more lengthy process and a little more tricky to layout properly but produces the cleanest results.

The second-best method is to use Boris 3D text built-into FCP; Livetype is really only used when you need effects-based type such as motion, warps etc.
