I've been using a Compressor H.264 setting for quite a while in Compressor 3.0.5 (MacOS 10.4.11) with good results. Now I've entered the same values into Compressor 3.5.1 with terrible results.
(in all cases input is FCP exported QT)
Aspect: DVCPro 1080
Video Data Rate restricted to 1300 kbits/sec
Filters: Black White Restore, Deinterlacing (Odd)
everything else default
This setting works peachy, now I put all those settings in to a Snow Leopard : Compressor 3.5.1 and it's all going haywire.
My output from the new system will only play in QT 7 at 720x270 and everything gets extremely pixelated.
