Exporting H264, but quality keeps dropping?
on Oct 4, 2013 at 7:50:13 pm

Hello, and sorry, I am no FCP expert.

I'm trying to export a 7 minute video which I can put online, and I'm trying to do so as an H264 in 1080.

I'm using QT conversion with H264 and best quality for the export, with size set to current.

My clips are all 1920x1080, 24fps.

My sequence settings (img):

Here is the problem: The resolution looks wonderful after export. Right up until it begins to fade to black (cross dissolve), at which point it becomes pixilated. Then, it just stays that way for the rest of the video. Here are images:

It looks good at first:
Begins to dissolve, becomes pixelated (img):
Video looks like crap! (img):

Something tells me I've done something wrong in the sequence settings. Please help!
