Quality of Text in Final Cut Pro

If you plan on exporting your Final Cut Pro sequence as a QuickTime movie, you may want to consider applying a de-interlace filter to your entire sequence. This is especially true for moving elements such as crawling text.

Also, if you do not plan on laying back to tape through the firewire port, you might consider exporting your QuickTime movie using a different codec. This will improve the quality of your graphics. Compressing graphics with the DV codec will cause them to lose quality since DV is compressed 5:1.

The de-interlace function is located in the effects palette under the video filters category.

Also, I for rolling or crawling text, I reccomend using the Boris Title Crawl, instead of the legacy Final Cut Pro title tool. This is because the Boris Title Crawl contains a 1:2:1 de-flicker option built in as an option.
