LiveType & FCE

I've noticed no matter what I create in LiveType after it is rendered in FCE as a Quicktime movie (LivetType clips used as intros) it loses Picture quality. It becomes very grainy, why???? How do I rectify this problem?

The LiveType source file is supposed to be used by FCP, not a rendered QT file (I don't know about FCE).

From the FCP manual:
Quote:
To add a title you created in LiveType, you import the LiveType project in exactly the same way you would import most media items. A LiveType project file within Final Cut Pro is simply referred to as a LiveType clip or a LiveType movie.

To import a LiveType project into Final Cut Pro, do one of the following:
Choose File > Import (or press Command-I) and navigate to the LiveType project you want to import into Final Cut Pro.
Or, from the Finder, drag a LiveType project file into the Final Cut Pro Browser.

The LiveType project file appears as a clip in the Final Cut Pro Browser.

Note: If necessary, you can later reconnect the LiveType project file on disk just as you would any other Final Cut Pro clip.

When you import a LiveType project, Final Cut Pro creates a LiveType clip that refers to the LiveType project file. A LiveType clip behaves just like any other clip in a Final Cut Pro project, so you can set In and Out points, edit the clip into a sequence, and reconnect the LiveType clip whenever the LiveType project file is updated.

When you open LiveType you must first set the project properties to match your project in FCE or FCP before you begin to build your title. Do this by going to the edit menu and selecting project properties.
