Hello all,


I have been using Final cut pro for awhile and never had any issues. However, I recently got a GoPro and I have found that when I export the footage the quality is absolutely terrible. Here is my workflow

- Gopro footage is shot at 2.7k (Good quality)

- Converted to ProRes Lt (Good quality)

- Edited (Still looks like good quality in final cut pro)

Then when I export it looks terrible... I have tried exporting it as a sequence and then converting it to quicktime or mp4 in mpeg streamclip (which Ive always done)

Or, I have tried exporting it as a movie from FCP as a quicktime conversion, H.264, 5000 kbps and converting it down to 1280x720 (which Ive always done for vimeo)

- After the long render process I look at the video and its awful!


Any suggestions on workflow here?
