Finished DVD quality is awful!!
Jun 9th, 2007, 07:13
I recently purchased Final Cut Studio 2 which includes DVD Pro to which I am new. My edited movies from Final Cut Pro 6 are great. The video is captured using the EZ set up (DV-NTSC) Standard Def 4:3. The finished edited product is great. I then export it using (this seems to be the only way I'm offered any formatting options) to a file as a self contained Quick Time movie using current settings, include audio, video, and chapter markers. DVD Pro imports the asset with an amber colored dot. When I hit the simulate button, the movie plays flawlessly. When the movie is encoded (I think that's what happens), the button turns green. But then when I hit the simulate button, the movie plays like a grainy, pixilated, 15fps internet movie. It also burns to the DVD as such. It plays off the hard drive flawlessly but outputs to DVD Pro like a piece of garbage. Is this an encoding problem? What am I doing wrong?Reply
