FCP Text to DVD without quality loss?
on Jan 6, 2013 at 5:18:09 pm

Hi

I have a series of jpegs, (plain white text on black / 2415 x 2415).

I need to create a sequence, (adding cross dissolves between each image) which will then play on a looping DVD.

What would you recommend as the best work flow in order to maintain the quality throughout: importing the jpegs into FCP, exporting the sequence to DVD SP and then creating the disc?

Many thanks in advance for any tips.

To maintain quality, I would create this in Motion. Re-type your text using a 1280x720p ProRes setting.

If you're moving on the stills with motion effects, and do them without making the image size exceed 1920X1080, then edit them in a ProRes 4:2:2 sequence set to be at 29.97, and then compress that HD version to an SD DVD in DVD SP. It's a garbage in/garbage out situation. Send that whole sequence to Motion for the titles or use Title 3D for them. The text tools in FCP are bitmapped, but those Title 3D titles are not. They'll hold up better. Making them larger rather than smaller will help preserve them too when you compress for that DVD's SD file set.
