ProRes 422 Files Blurry in FCP7 Canvas?
on Jan 13, 2014 at 5:53:05 pm

Hi all,

I am using FCP7 to edit ProRes 422 files. The files look great in the viewer, but appear pixelated and blurry in the canvas. I did an export test and they also export in the same blurry way.

The clips are 1910x1080 ProRes 422s converted from MTS files using Anusoft Video Converter.

I believe the issue is that the 422s are too large for the FCP timeline/canvas, but I'm not sure how to compress them without losing quality. Any advice will be highly appreciated!

What are your sequence settings?

1920x1080 I hope. From what source?

Hardly. FCP is designed to work with full res, 1920x1080 ProRes 422, HQ or even 4444 files. I suspect your sequence settings are some other, lower quality setting, like DV/NTSC.

Thanks for your help.
Yes, they're 1920x1080, converted from MTS files from a Lumix GH2.

What should I try resetting the settings to?

They need to match your clip. If you drop a clip into a blank sequence, FCP asks if you want the settings to match. Click YES.
