Photoshop files don't look good in FCP
on Mar 3, 2011 at 5:29:58 pm

When I import to FCP a photoshop file with layers the quality dosen't look (jagged border) so good so what I have to do is go inside the photoshop sequence and grab all my layers and add them to my sequence and they look much better that way.

I would like to know if this is normal or there is something that I am doing wrong.

Thanks for all the help.

We cannot say, you need to give us more info.

For starters what are your sequence settings FCP?

A. Judge your canvas at 100% Zoom
B. Use ProRes 444 or Animation codec in Sequence settings for best quality.

*Animation Codec is not a realtime video codec but much better for graphics in FCP compared to ProRes422.
It's a huge difference. Yeah i was suprised too.

Thanks Zane and Paul for replaying.

This happen to me in all sequences it dosen't matter if it is SD or HD in any size.
If I drag the psd (with layers) file from the browser to the timeline it look jagged the file so I go inside the sequence and copy all layer and aded to my original sequence and I have to rearrange in size all the element in the psd file.

SD and HD doesn't mean anything.
You need to have proper sequence settings.
and Judge the canvas at 100%
Check your Canvas, is it set to 100%?

What are your current sequence settings?

I digitize a spot that came in a Digital Betacam
NTCS 720x486 29.97 Field Dominance: lower (even)
The agency send me a psd multilayer logo (1650x1200) that I have to add.
I import the logo to FCP then I add the logo psd multilayer file to my sequence and It dosen't look good.
What I do is go inside the psd sequence and grab all the layers and add the to my original sequence and then the look good.

I think the problem is a Field Dominance my sequence lower and the psd file is none.
How do I mix Field Dominance???

Thanks,
