    Drop Zones Degrade Movies
    Ok its me again - When i drop vision into a drop zone (self made shape) it degrades the vision - pixelates it- is this due to interlacing issues. it looks good in the viewer of DVDSP but as soon as it goes into the drop zone - its pixelated. Muchly appreciate any help wit this0 Thanks heaps bree

    This is due in part to interlacing, and in part to interpolation, or what the computer does when it shrinks an image. In this case, DVDSP has to determine how to redraw the pixels (in different interlacing slices, no less) and presnt a finished image. When shrinking the display size of a movie, always do it at 75%, 50%, or 25% of the original .. anything other than those values will distort the image considerably. When dropping an image into a drop zone, it's resizing to some value other than the above, unless you are extremely lucky (or plan for it in advance).

    Thanks mate! Will try this out - In the meantime, Ive just embedded it all into a .mov and used that as the motion background - keeps my text and graphics and drop zones looking crisp - without adding too much - if anything to the size.

    Yeah, that's the best way to go about it ... :) ... drop zones are really only good for "templated" projects, IMHO.
