Stop Motion Trouble

Hello,

I'm trying desperately to take a few thousand high quality jpegs, convert them to video, and edit in FCP 7. I have exported a good H264 version from Quicktime Pro 7 then converted it to Apple Pro Res in MPEG Streamclip, but once imported into FCP, the quality is very poor. The project needs to be at 15fps, which I set in Quicktime Pro 7. Any suggestions?

Why are you exporting H264 from Quicktime? Just go direct to ProRes from Quicktime Pro then bring it into FCP.

I used the other program before I bought QuickTime pro. At any rate, still having issues with the drop in quality once it's in final cut. I shot a few thousand photos with a macro lens for a stop motion project, and the footage now looks terrible.

Is there a green bar above your footage in the timeline? If so, your sequence settings don't exactly match your source footage.

Also, double check that the playback quality in your timeline is not set to Low. This is on the left hand side of your timeline; there is a little arrow that says RT that is a dropdown menu with the playback options.

Bring the image sequence into QT7 and export a prores QT.
Then bring that into FCP.
Drop clip onto a new sequence and make sure the settings match.
