How to do black and red duocolor without pixelation?

Hi

Im trying to do black and red color duocolor.
Ive made an attempt an im satisfied with the results, but when i render and export the movie it becomes pixellated.

Here the effects i have used:

Heres how it looks with these effects used, before rendering:

And heres the problem: This it how it looks with the abomentioned effects used after rendering:

Is there a way to make the image look like the first one. Two colors, red and black, but with no pixelation when it is rendered?


PS:

Im quite sure its the colors which are responsible for the pixelation because when i remove the colors there is only litle pixelation. Heres and example of the same image with the colors removed, before rendering.

And here the same picture after rendering - notice that it only has a smal amount of pixelation:

Have you tried an actual export to see if this is just the rendered display file resolution being a bit lower for speed sake while editing? There may be a setting in the display/rendering preferences for image quality. The unrendered pics would be the full quality footage, whereas the post rendered pics would be from the render files created by FCP.

Hi
Yes the pixellation is there when i export it also, unfortunately. No matter how high compressionrate i export in, the pixellation is still there, even when i export in .dv-format. So i dont know what to do?

Can you look at it on an external monitor/tv hooked up through your camera?

Check the final cut menu > User Preferences > Render Control to see what resolution the render is set to. Should be 100%

Hi thanks for the answers.

But my render resolution is set to 100%. And i dont have an external monitor. But when i export it the pixellation is still there.

Any other ideas?


PS/ If anyone is interested here it is on myspace. Even though myspace reduce the quality of the movies, this one is more pixellated than the other ones i have uploaded to myspace, which are in the same compression rate. http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fu...oID=1910718179

perhaps using a higher resolution pipeline? edit using an HD sequence, then export as NTSC when you're done? I'm out of good suggestions.

Do you suggest that i should set the resolution of the sequence to twice what it is now, and then render it, and export it as usual?


/ps im on PAL-format.

Hi
im using a canon mv800. quite a cheap camera, i think its 250 dollars now.
On the "martin viser nogle bger..." i used the fcp three way color corrector. Up the contrast. The "high" color is all yellow and the saturation is almost all down - and thats it.
