I'm working on some banner videos and their formats are




I've been working in Final Cut Pro X, which of course doesn't let you custom change the format, but I worked with a photoshop template that framed my work to the size I needed and I scaled the footage down. The quality is fine, looks crips and clear.


Then I send it to Compressor, and I've used every setting there is from H.264 to HD 720p for Youtube and Vimeo and so on. I custom change the size to 160x600, crop the video accordingly and submit.


The final version I get sometimes works, and sometimes doesn't. Some of the Jpgs end up blurry, some of the text ends up blurry, and I find especially the last few frames seem to suffer the most. I need it to work all the time. The 160x600 isn't as bad as the 300x250...


I'm not too technical, I admit, so any advice or help would be greatly appreciated.


Thank you very much!


Kind regards,
