    Hey guys,
    Don't know if we have any video editors here, but I'll give it a shot...
    I am having a problem with this one particular photoshop image in my video in FCP HD. It has a transparent background and is not resized in FCP HD. It is sharp until I add a transition into it and it goes blurry for the transition and then snaps back to quality after the duration of the trans.
    I have 2 images from photoshop with transparent backgrounds and this one is the only one giving me trouble. Here's a link that shows the quality snap after the transition. (NOTE: Look at the bluish/yellowish logo in the bottom left.) It's 9 MB, not too bad (compressed).

    9MB Quicktime

    Any thoughts appreciated!!!

    Don't use a cross dissolve on the images, just put an anchor point with the pen tool on the beginning of the image clip and manually fade down the opacity so it fades in. Hopefully it works.
