Qualify of graphics and titles in Final Cut Pro

If your looking to improve on the rendered quality of text or graphics within Final Cut Pro, you may want to consider exporting your finished sequence as a 10bit Uncompressed movie, instead of using the standard DV codec.

To do this, navigate to the file-export menu, and select the 10 bit uncompressed codec. As an example you can compare these two screen captures within a QuickTime viewer. These two movies are at full resolution, click on the thumbnails to compare the quality. You'll notice the title in the 10 bit uncompressed movie is much sharper.

As an option, you might want to consider exporting your movie using the Animation codec. This would keep the resolution settings the same. This requires a custom setting. There is a slight different in resolution between DV 25 and 10 bit Uncompressed. A 10 bit uncompressed file is 720 x 486, instead of 720 x 480.

You can then import your 10 bit uncompressed or Animation movie into Apple Compressor for processing a mpg2t file for authoring a dvd.
