ProRes Rendering Issue

Creative Person,

When I layer an animated lower third with alpha channel on a video clip in FCP 7, the animated lower third plays back smoother pre-render than it does after it's rendered.

FCP 7 Sequence Settings:
1920x1080 HDTV 1080i (16:9)
None (Field Dominance)
Apple ProRes 422 (HQ)

Video Clip Info.:
Apple ProRes 422 HQ

Lower Third Animation Info.: (Exported From After Effects CS4)
Apple ProRes 4444 Millions of Colors+

If you have some time to give to help me out, please shoot me an email @ This issue is very odd and I am absolutely stuck.

Thank you,


Derek L. Natzke

Check the clip's field order in the FCP browser. It needs to be None -- like your sequence -- and you can change it there.
