    I’m making a 3-minute animated cartoon on Final Cut Pro using high resolution graphics I created on After Effects and Photoshop. When I export, render, or play my master sequence in the canvas or Quicktime Player, the image looks really low resolution (diagonal lines look like staircases, edges are blurry, etc). However, if I just park the playhead on any given frame in the timeline, the image looks crystal clean and high resolution in the canvas. I tried playing it in the QuickView tool at full resolution and the image looks beautiful there as well. Can anybody tell me how to export my sequence at full resolution so that it looks as good as it does when I play it in the QuickView tool at full resolution? Thanks in advance.

    FCP does not show video at full resolution in the canvas.
    Quicktime Player does not show DV at full resolution unless you check “High Quality” playback in the Movie Properties window.

    You can only judge your video quality on an external video monitor…not your computer monitor.
