Hey all, hope you can help with my problem...
I am editing HDV footage in Final Cut Studio... the footage has been captured into HDV, and my sequence and workflow is all HDV. The footage looks amazing, with the colours really popping.
Now, whenever I export the an edit to Quicktime using the the Export>QT Conversion>Apple Pro Res 422 (HQ) route within FCS, the quality of the video is good, but the colours in the QT file I export look muted, almost desaturated... and I can't figure out why?
The final edit will end up on SD DVD anyway, but am I following the best route for exporting HDV footage intended for SD DVD?
Is the Apple Pro Res 422 HQ codec best for exporting HDV? Or can someone recommend another way of doing this, so that my final edit retains the best possible quality/colour?
Many thanks informed ones.
