I am a new user to FCE, but relatively experienced with iMovie (old). I discovered to my utter horror that when I exported a slideshow of mostly stills (1 .mov), the quality of the entire video was awful. I exported as a high-res dv file, and the quality was the same as the prior export. I finally checked my project by expanding the timeline viewer to fullscreen, and discovered that the quality there was horrible too. This astonishing loss of quality is not acceptable for the applications for which I need the video. I am wondering why it is that this quality loss is apparent, even when viewing the images from my project files results in a very high-quality picture. Is there any way to fix this?
