Question: Poor quality home movie export

I imported movies from my Sony HC3 DV tape recorder into FCP I exported finished movie to Apple devices 720P (iTunes) the 1:45 minute movie is 685 mb and it looks horrible if I export as a Master File to desktop its 30 Gig looks great (for DV) is there a happy medium? I have 200 tapes to export and that would take up a huge amount of room

It should appear in the upper left corner of viewer when the project timeline is active. Would be good to see the viewer of the project.


I just realized that this is an HDV camera. I was confused by your saying it was DV.


Open one in the clips in the QuickTime player and give information that’s in the inspector window so we’re certain of the original specs.

No problem. Really need to see the specs of the original media. Select one if the clips your editing in the browser and press Shift-Cmd-R. That should take you to the original media file. Open that in the QuickTime player and show the inspector window for it.
