after Compressor, video looks bad
on May 20, 2007 at 12:33:33 am

I"ve been trying to encode my FCP timeline using Compressor, but the end result is a poor quality video.

I'm using Compressor 2 to encode to mpeg2.

This is what I do:
I am exporting from FCP to Compressor (this is a single 5 min QT movie file, that I captured straight from my DV cam to FCP)

my presents in Compressor are: 1 pass CRB,
mpeg2 elementary, NTSC CCIR 601/DV, 29.97, frame controls: automatic, 4:3, Average data rate: 4.5, bottom first.

HOWEVER, I have also followed the same steps on another 5 min FCP project, this one consists of
multiple clips from several different sources, with effects, filters, much more complicated, and it looks great ... with the same settings as above.

Don't know what is the problem with the 5 min QT movie.
After compressor, it looks like bad vhs video.

Any ideas?
thanks in advance

Crank up your CBR to 6.2 and see if that does it. Also, be sure to create an AC3 of your audio tracks.
