Alright, so I’ve been done with my 8 minute short film for a while now. Everytime I compress it, it looks a little grainy or pixelated maybe, and there are some flares around lights. It seems to be worse on bigger tv’s as well. I was just wondering if this sounds like a compression problem that anyone is familiar with and any help would be apreciated. I’m using Final Cut Pro 4.0 on a Mac.
Also, is there anyway to crunch the file down without using quality? Perhaps changing it from a .mov file to .wmv or something. I want to put my movie on the internet, but it’s such a huge file after compressing it into a .mov file from FCP, that it would take forever to put online as well as for anyone to download it.
Any help would be great. Thanks,
