I use motion to do the push up of the text from under neath; you probably can do it in FCP, but it is easier to do in Motion, and allows you to control more parameters. It takes longer to render if you use Motion, but the results look better.
I use Compressor to generate the video .mov and an iPhone version. The results with Compressor are better quality for the same file size, when compared to what a normal Export does in FCP. I could have probably halved the file size if I set the actual pixel size to be smaller. I’m still learning Compressor; this was my first time using it.
Hi Jeremy – Why do you think it needs to be de-interlaced? I’m guessing that you are seeing some horizontal lines though it…but, you shouldn’t see this. Can you take a screen shot of the interlaced effect and show it to me? I’d like to correct it. I’m guessing you are using windows, and some video player that isn’t Quicktime. QuickTime on mac looks fine with it.
Also, most parts weren’t shot with a tripod, nor would it really have worked to use it…I can eliminate shake in Motion or FCP, but I didn’t think there was a need. I guess it is just a matter of opinion and personal preference!
? That’s the very reason there is a video forum. Just as there’s a separate forum for buying/selling (trading post) and all the others. Just makes it easier and more convenient to know exactly where to look for a specific topic.
