I am a new Final Cut Express user. I have imported several test .mov clips which were created in Arc Scene (ESRI GIS software). The original clips were clear and crisp when played in Quicktime. The pixel size of the original clips are 1024x768. The clip length is about 4 seconds. File size is 32 megs so I'd assume there is plenty of resolution to play with. I rendered the clip, then tried the "Export QuickTime Movie" option under <export>. I also tried a variety of size and format choices using the "Export Using QuickTime Conversion" option. All .mov products exported from Final Cut Express using these test files contained unusable resolution. It did not matter if the output file was 1 meg or 100 megs. The output .mov files were blurry and poor quality. Are there settings I need to know about that affect rendering? I can't think of other variables that might be affecting the poor output resolution. Thanks for your help.
