New Here & to Apple Final Cut Pro, need advice

Hello,
Q for the seasoned pros of Apple Final Cut Pro ver 7. My preview video looks great HD like it should, but the program/out does not, it's not even close to HD, what gives? Thanks in advance!

You can independently set the outgoing codec/format to be different from that which you have in the timeline. Go to the top drop-down menu, first tab that says "Final Cut Pro", scroll down and find: "Audio/Video settings", and make sure the sequence preset and video playback settings are the same. Then, if your system uses an external video input/output board like black magic or AJA, there are prefs there that must ALSO match, to get the final output to be whatever it is you want it to be.

I'll check that out Thanks! What I use is SD cards from a JVC HD camcorder & then edit & share/burn to a DVD.

How did you import the footage? What did you convert it to?

And you do know that DVDs aren't HD, right? They are SD. BluRay is what you need for HD, and for that you need third party software like Toast.

[Dave Gray] "Imported via a SD card in mov"

MOV just means that it's a Quicktime file. Quicktime is a container, like a can. What is IN that can? Peas? Carrots? Peaches? Quicktime can be one of many "codecs," ProRes, H.264, HDV, DVCPRO HD, Animation, Sorenson...and so on.

FCP only works well with specific editing codecs...the ones it works with are in the EASY SETUP list.

As for making the best SD DVD, use Compressor's DVD BEST QUALITY presets, and then use DVD Studio Pro to author.
