Working in DVCProHD. P2 23.98 Native material in a 720p setup. Everything in HD-land looks great. All exported and converted files look great on DVD and as QT/WMV/Flash.
Downconversion is SDI out to my DVW-500 DigiBeta, letting the Kona add the pulldown to the Anamorphic master.
What I'm noticing on the downconvert is that graphics, specifically lower 1/3 name keys, are looking as though they're being slightly JPEG compressed, for lack of a better term. No real issues with the downconverted footage, but the graphics aren't looking as good as they should.
Could a bad length of cable (or patch bay jack) cause this kind of issue? Something else?
