Images in Final Cut Pro

My still pictures being imported into Final Cut Pro are grainy and pixelated. Here’s how to prevent that from happening using Adobe Photoshop.
Basically the gist of this is:

  1. Make your image 720 pixels wide and 534 pixels tall
  2. Do your art
  3. squish the image so it’s only 480 pixels tall – this is because NTSC pixels are rectangular. The image will appear “square” again on TV.
