Shaky, pixelated text using Camera in Motion
on May 18, 2012 at 12:44:52 pm

So I'm still new to Motion (and everything in general!) and am having an issue with some text in my project. I'm using the Camera to move through a set of images in 3d space, until it reaches a line of text and then moves through that text as well. The text is 91pt and at -6750 on the Z axis. The camera moves from 0 to -12,100 on the z axis. The project properties are XDCAM EX 1080p24, no field order, square pixels. The text looks jagged just in the motion project, before it even goes into FCP or is exported.

Once exported from Motion as a QT and then FCP as a .mov or .mp4, using h.264 compression, the text becomes worse and jumpy and the images are a little jumpy as well.

My sequence settings in FCP are HDTV1080i (16;9), with the field dominance as upper, compressor is apple pro res422, pixel is square. The video is primarily very old footage with several Motion projects.

Here is a screen shot:

Hopefully it is an obvious error on my part!

Thanks so much,
