Livetype render quality on timeline
on Mar 19, 2009 at 6:05:26 pm

If this has been asked before I apologize. I'm coming back to FCP after having been on AVID for a couple of years.

Question: Why, even after rendering, does my Livetype graphic resolution look very poor in a FCP Sequence. But if I render out a sample quicktime, say using the Animation codec, it is clean. If I lay off a show to tape by just playing down the timeline, will the graphics look clean or crappy?

I'm editing in DV. Easy Setup in FCP is set to DV/Panasonic DVCPRO, NTSC-DV. In Livetype the project properties are set to NTSC-DV 3:2. I even made sure the field dominance matches FCP.

Any thoughts on what is happening here? Thanks

How are you looking at it, on your computer monitor, or through a card or box (like an AJA IO etc.) into a video monitor?

That's your problem. You have to view it on a video monitor to see what it really looks like. It's probably fine, but you won't know till you view it properly.

also, there's a nice article over on kenstone.net. Look for something like "Why does my type look so crappy?" or similar.
