Shot on DV100, all footage is fine except close up of a face, its a little blocky (looks like big pixels). It has 2 Luca plugin filters, and a color corrector, and a broadcast safe on it, BUT so does all the other footage, so I dont see how it could be that. Its sequence is in the HDV preset, but I have tried Apple prores 422, 422HQ AND 4444 and none make a difference. The canvas size makes no difference either. Even after exporting as and (uncompressed) quicktime movie (cmd+e) it doesnt make much difference. What could it be?

There are two solutions for the DV blockiness,
One is to capture with an AJA or so; when the 411/420 footage is upgraded to 422, the card perform some Chroma filtering.
There is also a software solution that works very well: the Nattress Chroma Smooth/Sharpen filter.
To see the results you must apply it to the DV footage is a 422 codec sequence.
With Prores and "High Precision Rendering", is magic.
