  • terrible quality going out to tape

    I tried to search this but I can’t even begin to find a search parameter. Finished a project last night, rendered in/out then on to digital cut. The video dispay in the compose window looks fine. However, the video going to tape thru the mojo looks terrible. The only example I can give is there are small squares appearing at portions of the screen where lines are diagonal or curved. It looks like the little boxes you see on weather channel where the tornado warnings are. It leads me to believe a quality setting must be off somewhere. Shot on dvcam, looks fine.
    Digitized, no problem at dv25411. Anyone seen this one? Could adding the mojo to the system after the footage was digitized have something to do with it? Thanks.

    Are your render settings in media creation set to 1:1 or DV25 or 15:1. If it

    Thnnks Chris, I’m 99 % sure I rendered at dv25411. My next experiement is to swap mojo’s with another machine and see what happens. Barring that I’m going to reimport and redigitize the footage; there’s not that much, just a rough cut. Then see what happens

    Solved the problem the mojo went south. Swapped a mojo out with one from a different system and everything now plays fine. Thanks to all who responded
