    Final Cut - Video quality question
    Sorry I know this is a very basic question but I am new to Final Cut.

    I have captured some high quality video into my capture scatch via firewire. When I drag it to the time line it looks great. Exactly like the footage direct from the camera. The problem is when I expand the viewing window the footage does not look that great.

    Is this because the footage I am viewing is a low quality version of the footage which final cut uses as a representation while I am editing? When I render my final edit will the video look sharp again?

    If you are expanding the window make the image greater than 100 percent in size, they you are getting the expected result I'd say.
