Hi there

I'm in a PAL land. I'm working in 1050x576. When the comp is done, I'm dropping it into a new comp using the PAL D1/DV widescreen preset 720x576 and using the same D1/DV PAL Widescreen 1.46 pixel aspect ratio, which I thought was the correct workflow.

But the output file is noticeably softer in this squeezed file compared to say a file that I output at 1050x576. I notice it particularly on type and graphics. Any thoughts as to why I'm getting this softness? It's only small, but it's noticeable and annoying.

I'm outputting in Prores 422 to go to FCP.

Thanks, in appreciation.
