• The forum rules at Mac-Forums (linked at the top of every forum) are very clear, we respect US law and court precedence when it comes to legality of activity.

    Therefore to clarify:
    • You may not discuss breaking DVD or BluRay encryption, copying, or "ripping" commercial, copy-protected DVDs.
    • This includes DVDs or BluRays you own. Even if you own the DVD or BluRay, it is still technically illegal under the DMCA to break the encryption. While some may argue otherwise, until the law is rewritten or the US Supreme Court strikes it down, we will adhere to the current intent of the law.
    • You may discuss ripping or copying unprotected movies or homemade DVDs.
    • You may discuss ripping or copying tools in the context that they are used for legal purposes as outlined in this post.

jpg's in Final Cut Pro HD

I'm importing my portfolio and making a video
but when I import a jpg from Photoshop they turn out just a lil' bit jaggedy.
I tried the video filters in Final Cut to de-interlace and it didn't seem to fix it.

with the jpgs, Its important that the type can be read and the pictures are somewhat crisp.

any ideas?!

thanks

FCP resizes pictures to NTSC 720 x 480. Resize in photoshop before import.

FCP does not resize .PSD files. just change colors to NTSC or PAL depending on your TV system. import the file, it will open as a separate sequence. if its multi-layer file all layers will be placed on top of each other. play with it, do your thing and when you're done, home it in main sequence timeline.
