Why does my logo in Final Cut Express 4 HD look jagged or interlaced?

Hi Everyone,


I'm new to Final Cut and I'm having a little trouble with a logo I want to animate over a movie. I've brought it in as a PNG file and I'm able to make it change size and go from one side of the screen to other, however although it looks nice and clear when it's still, once it starts to move it looks all jagged and terribly interlaced. Since I am new to this, I imagine there is some setting or something I am missing.


I made the PNG file by copying and pasting a vector file from Illustrator into Photoshop at 5" x 5" and 300 dpi so I think the resolution is high enough - also the logo does look nice and crisp and clear until it moves across the screen.


If anyone can help me with this, it would be greatly appreciated! I've happily used iMovie for years and am looking forward to what I will do in the future with Final Cut!
