Quicktime .mov looks flat.
Aug 1st, 2008, 10:16
I have what might be a dumb question and I'm a bit of a newbie to FCP. I've been editing some videos that are only going to be seen on the internet in FCP2, which my client wants delivered as a quick time .mov compressed as DV/DVC PRO NTSC. When I play the quick time file after compression it looks much flatter than the image I see on the FCP2 Canvas. I have been sending the sequences to Color for contrast and color adjustments but the DV/DVC PRO NTSC file still never comes close to the crisp beautiful visual I see in Color or FCP2. Can anyone give me any suggestions or maybe just explain why there's such a difference in quality? Also, even though I can't send it to my client, is there a compression I can use when I export my FCP sequences using QT conversion that will match or come close to the contrast I see in FCP on my computer monitor? ThanksReply
