Bad exports from FCP using compressor or quicktime conversion
on Sep 5, 2009 at 2:34:16 pm

Hi. I'm having a problem exporting HD files from my timeline using compressor and quicktime conversion, regardless of the settings. No matter what settings I choose, the exported file is extremely pixelated. Meanwhile in the timeline, the footage looks just fine.

I have never had this issue before, it happened from one day to another, and I did not knowingly change anything in the programs. The source video is from a canon vixia hf10 1440x 1080i.

I need help with this issue ASAP! Thank you very much!!!

had you tried setting "Use High Quality Video setting when available".
In the QT Preferences.
Cheers,

Is this using FCP 6 or 7?

Yes, I have that option enabled. To be more specific, im getting what are called 'jaggies' on all the edges. Like I mentioned previously, I did not have any problems for a month, then from one day to another jagged lines appear in everything I export, no matter what setting I choose...

If you are playing interlaced movies in a computer monitor, that's normal.

I think I found a piece of info that might be the cause of the problem. When I export, quicktime conversion reports the native resolution of compressor as much lower than the actual file (800x480 vs 1080i) perhaps causing the final 720p render to upscale causing the pixelation... Is there a way to set the native compressor resolution manually? Any idea whats going on here?

Sure.
When you export you can set codec, size, audio..
Try to avoid using QT Conversion.

I'd have to disagree with not using "quicktime conversion".

I've been doing a lot of web quality exports from Final Cut Pro 6 (H264, AAC) and I've found that when I export using the same settings in Compressor I get aliasing issues like that mentioned above.

When I export using quicktime conversion I get a much better result. This is obviously a pain because the quicktime conversion settings don't stick between restarts. Apple why don't you fix this!!!

Even though I've used it for years and it's the only way to encode MPEG2, I'm beginning to not trust Compressor.
