I have just exported my finished edit using quicktime movie (current settings). The problem is some of the footage is stuttering and slow. It looks perfect in the timeline but when exported the quality has dropped significantly.
Iam using footage from two different cameras. primary vision comes from a handycam with AVCHD files. I logged and transferred them into fcp using apple pro res 422. The frame rate is 25fps, frame size 1920x1080.
The other footage came to me on a disk so unsure of what the camera is but it was mp4 format NTSC 29.97fps, 1280 x 720. I converted these files to .mov and to pal 25 fps to match the frame rate of the handycam primary footage.
Sequence setting in timeline:
1920x1080 (HDTV 1080i 16:9)
apple PoRes 422
The poor quality footage is from the handycam when exported. The 1280 x 720 looks fine. Is this to do with the frame sizes not being the same in the sequence. Or is there something wrong in my sequence settings?
Im utterly perplexed.
