FCP7 & and unclear text titles

Ok guys I am about to jump off my roof.... lol

I started a new project that needs to be edited from a job a shot about 2 months ago. Ok let me spell it all out in steps so maybe someone can help me.

1. I shot footage from my Sonypmwex1R in SD footage.

2. I opened up my FCP and set the sequence to match my footage that was shot. 740 x 486 29.97 fps DV/DVCPRO _ NTSC Pixel Aspect NTSC-CCIR 60 Field Dominance Lower EVEN.

3. I add a video clip to the TL looks perfect.

4. I make a title in the viewer window using Boris and drop it onto my TL above my video clip that I put there. The Title looks Perfect in my canvas, although I now have a RED line telling me that it has to be rendered. When I render it my once perfect title looks Bad. Not clean, not sharp, and pixilated.

5. If i make a correct to my title it once agin looks perfect BUT red line again telling me to render it then back to looking crapy.


What the heck is going wrong this has never happen to me before.

Please anybody who solves will be my hero

Thank Mike Armao

Re: FCP7 & and unclear text titles

Sounds like the Boris clip you are generating may not be the same size as the Timeline clip media.

Double click on the Text clip in the Timeline to open it in the Viewer, open the Motion Tab and check the Scale box at the top. Is it scaling up? (More than 100%) or down? (less than 100%)

I would also check the sequence setting to see if the render settings are the same as the sequence.

Re: FCP7 & and unclear text titles

I will try that. So the render setting has to be the same as the sequence setting. Where do i change the render setting?

Thanks
Mike
