FCP Express - Exports Low Quality
So Im working on a project for my dad and each time I export the video from FCP, the quality is horrible. The quality of the videos may not be that great due to youtube, etc. I hope someone can see the difference between the two.
Here is a clip im using that is the original, unexported:
Here is the exported one using default quicktime settings:
If you look at the outside of the letters you can tell they are very pixelated after being exported. How can I avoid / fix that? What quality settings should I be using? I know its possible the original videos arent the best quality, but that cant be changed.
Any help would be appreciated.

If your final target is YouTube, try exporting using QuickTime to an MPEG4 file, "Current" size, "Current" frame rate, and a video bitrate like this:
640x480 or 720x480 -- use 2000-2500kbps
1280x720 -- use 3000-3500kbps
1920x1080 -- use 3500-4000kbps
The defaults are very pixelated and unusable. A good audio bitrate (AAC) should be around 128-256kbps.

If you click file>export quicktime you can export a quicktime movie at the quality and current codec you are editing in. You have to tell us what settings you are using before we can determine anything but there is something wrong in the way you are exporting video or the codec that you chose to edit with.
