Andre van BerloScaling a clip with a template effect in Motion causes low quality video in FCPX

Hi everyone,

I did my best to make the title as clear as possible but I'll explain in more detail.

I create tutorials for youtube and have a very standard setup.
In the top left corner I have a camera angle of my face+chest that I use for the presentation part of the tutorial (people like to see a face). And normally I would scale that video down manually in FCPX, add image mask, drag it to the top left corner and use ripple callouts to give it a nice frame. Has always worked but as I do this everytime I wanted to make a template for it so i did in motion.

I made an effect and it does the following things:
1. scales the video to the correct proportions
2. places it in the top left corner of the screen
3. creates a nice frame around the image

The trouble is that once the video is rendered in FCPX that specific camera angle looks almost like its a rendered proxy while the rest of the video and camera angles look razor sharp.

I've attached the effect in case anyone would like to see what I'm doing wrong.

All help is appreciated!


PS I'm using the effect in a 1080p25 timeline.
