Hey all,

This is an odd question. I searched but didn't find anything on it so maybe I'm just silly. I have a miniDV project. My sequence is set up for DV/DVCPRO - NTSC. I want to make the highest quality back-up I can in a Quicktime movie so I select DV/DVCPRO - NTSC in Quicktime Conversion and chosen "Best" quality. When I look at this QT on my monitor it looks TERRIBLE. Very pixelated.

Is this normal? Is there something I'm missing?

Thanks

Export as Uncompressed.
Also, if you're looking on a Mac and the like, it's because it's uprezzing the footage when you enlarge it. Playing it back on a standard def TV will cause it look more as it should/does.

is because the QT in DV compressor is not full quality, is dinamic in terms of fps and quality
using the hi qual youre gonna solve it.

NTSC DV uses 4:1:1 colour sampling, which is pretty nasty.

Use some other codec - uncompressed, if you can stand the disk space.
