What format of footage are you working with? What do you mean "it got bad"?

I get a very similar problem.

The video in the timeline looks fine, but when exporting using ANY METHOD, the image looks jagged.

Also, I cannot export a QT reference. Even it "make movie self-content" is uncheked, the result is the same.

Any thought?

Thanks!

Again, what kind of footage are you working with, and what are your sequence settings?

Hi,

I am working with video shot with the codec DVCPRO HD 720p50
You can see the timeline settings in the image.

I have tried to export using "QuickTime conversion" and also via Compressor with really bad results.
Actually if I create some text, the letters would look bad as soon as I render the sequence.

Ps. Also, I cannot create a QT reference (even when "make movie self-content is unchecked). Is it a known Final Cut bug or is it just me?

Thanks!

If you haven't rendered your sequence beforehand, this can prevent FCP from creating a reference file (because it has nothing to reference).

I see no image attached.

Hi Zak,

Thanks for your reply.
I will try rendering the sequence first.

These are my setting:



Any idea about the jagged text?

Thanks!

Oh, I forgot,
I have also tried setting the dominance field to "none"
with no better results...

Not sure why your text is coming out poorly (are you viewing it at 100% or using a broadcast monitor?).

As for the export itself, I'd recommend using QT Movie (not QT Conversion) to get a self-contained file at full quality. Then bring that to Compressor for further compression.

Thanks for the exporting tip.

I am viewing the video at 100% in my iMac.

I just find a way around it, sending the video to MOTION and adding the text there. But it must be a way of doing this in FCP, right?

Well that's dodgy... try changing the sequence to ProRes.
