View Full Version : an unexplained image pixelation

Hi - I've run into something I haven't seen before. I've got a red triangle .png logo that looks perfect in a photo editing program - and looks perfect when I'm looking at it on my FCP 7 timeline....and perfect when I export it....but whenever I try to either: compress the file for Youtube.....or...upload it to youtube (even without compressing it) the top edges of the red triangle pixelate.

I've tried different codecs, to no avail. Anyone ever dealt with this? Any suggestions on a "special codec" that works well with (lol) red triangle graphics?

Here's a video where you can see what I'm talking about:

(before I upload that - the edges of the triangle all look smooth.)

Your "red triangle" looks perfect on my screen when I played the YouTube video you linked. (No pixelation at all.)

Looks OK to me as well.
