If anyone can help, I am trying to convert DVD files to MOV files for use in Final Cut Pro using Popcorn. I have tried a bunch of settings, but once the files are converted, they lose sharpness or become fuzzy. What is the best setting for the best image quality in converting DVD to MOV files, Please

The DV export is probably the best. It's in Popcorn 4 but I don't know if it is available in Popcorn 3. If not, which options are available in Popcorn 3. I don't have it on my Mac any more.

tsantee-

I tried it and it didn't make a difference. I have tried a lot of different conversions, but so far the Quicktime one is the same. Any possible non compressed options?

Thanks

DV is only a 4:1 compression so it should look reasonably sharp. If you had a different application such as Toast or Cinematize you could choose DVCPro50 (DV is equivalent to DVCPro25). You are looking at the video in actual size (720x480) and not full screen, right? The best I've seen is when using DVCPro50 and choosing Progressive for interlacing. But Popcorn doesn't have that setting available.
