    What type of camera? Is it grainy all over, or just in darker & black areas?

    The camera is a Panasonic 3CCD and I would call is grainy or fuzzy. Also, there is this box - remnant from earlier experiments with the chroma screen - how do I get rid of it? (3) how can I attach a screenshot image here????

    What specific model of Panasonic camera? I need "details". What "box" are you talking about? Are you trying to do a green screen?

    I wish your site would allow a screen shot to be attached - the box I am talking about is in front of the green screen and I cannot delete it. I sent the model number- here it is again: Panasonic 3CCD Model No AG-DVX100BP

    OK, so you're shooting standard def, cool. When you post a new message, look at the bottom of the text box, there is a button to link to an image.

    Are you saying there is green around the edges of your image frame when you key out the green screen? If so, what you want to do is use a Garbage Matte. My favorite for this is SliceX from CoreMelt, but the cropping and Matte effect built-in to FCP X work great. You want to mask out all the "garbage" that you don't want to deal with. As for making it sharper, There's not a ton you can do to sharpen up video, as you're shooting interlaced.
