Another question, I use final cut and my clips are H.264, and I've gotten used to the mediocre quality of my exports. I have an expensive camera, and when I look at the clips on my camera they're beautiful, but they lose quality in FCP, is this because of some of my settings? Could you advise me on how to properly import the footage so that the quality stays at its potential? The outcome isn't horrible, but its still noticeable when faces aren't as crisp as they should be.

Convert the H.264 clips to ProRes using Compressor before editing in FCP.

What he said. FCP doesn't work well with H.264...does all sorts of bad things. Gotta convert to ProRes BEFORE editing.
