Motion 4 render quality worse than Motion 3

Hello chaps.

I have question regarding Motion 4. I recently updated from Motion 3 and have noticed an issue with render quality in the new version. It seems that increasing render quality to best actually makes images and especially text look blurry. I also noticed a fairly significant hue shift in the same project between version 3 and 4. Here is a comparison of that:

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

When you moved up to 4, did you do a fresh install or just upgrade over a previous version?

Not sure why a fresh install would make any difference. Motion 4 handles output a little differently - would need to know more about how you are monitoring your results and what your specific quality settings are (in both Motion and FCP if you are using both).

"Not sure why a fresh install would make any difference."

If it is a clean install, then it would eliminate it from the list. The fact that there was a comparison of performance when recently switching from 3 to 4 leads me to ask this question.

Leopard to SL, FCP 6 to 7, STP, all seem to be subject to unexplainable anomalies when users did upgrades vs a clean install. It would surprise me if Motion was immune to this.

Your probably right about monitoring and quality settings.
