Re: Learn Media Composer Lesson 74: Import, QC and Export
by Michael McCune
A never-ending source of tips that speed and refine our use of a great product, MC. Thanks, Kevin.

Question regarding export quality vis-a-vis the Video Quality Button:
Does this setting--yellow, half green, and full green, for draft, better and best--affect the exported quality? Or, is it only the display monitor quality and playback smoothness that is affected by this setting? That is, do I have to be sure it is "best" when exporting?

Also, a related question: 10-bit green is sometimes an option in Video Quality.
I use Canon 5D footage a lot and used to create 10-bit avi files with NeoScene before importing to MC in order to assure best quality, especially for finely graduated luminance or color, which might show banding. Bummer to work hard on project and then have it dissolve up on a big screen and see obvious banding.

Of course I would like to export at best quality, 10-bit if available. But this 10-bit green button option is usually not available. An MC import settings issue?

Am I thinking this through properly?

I look forward to more of your fine tutorials, which I usually repeat two or three times to get all the info from them!

Yours, Mike McCune
