Hi...

I did a graphic animation on After Effects. My sequence settings there is PAL DV WIDESCREEN SQUARE PIXEL...I exported it to Quicktime using Animation codec. When I viewed it in my finder, it looks great. But when I brought to FCP, the animation is not sharp, they have jagged edges. My FCP sequence settings is 720:576 (anamorphic 16:9) and using the DV-PAL compressor. Any ideas where have I gone wrong?



Cheeers,
Riz

If the problem occurs only when you bring the file into Final Cut Pro, this might be a better question for the FCP forum.

[Fariz Khairun] "...are my settings right when i export from AE?"

No, they are not. They aren't right in either FCP or AE. In FCP, you should work in either a DV 50 (aka DVCPro 50) or ProRes 422 edit timeline. In AE, you would render using the codec used in the FCP edit timeline.

The reason for using a different codec: DV is EXTREMELY lossy. Rendering to DV in AE only makes your graphics look bad. Using a DV timeline in FCP even with a lossless render from AE will make graphics look bad as soon as you render it in FCP.

For safety's sake, I would duplicate your current FCP edit timeline, and change the codec in the duplicate's Sequence Settings.

Thank you Dave!

Now I export using ProRess422 from AE and edit using ProRess422 timeline. It looks better now then before but it still lacks the sharpness as compared to when I viewed it directly from Finder on my Mac... :(



Cheers,
Fariz
