making a slideshow in Final Cut

I made an audio slideshow in FCP and when I export it, the resolution sucks. Does anyone know the right way to do this?

I just did one, and struggled to find the right way, but here’s what I did:

1) File → Export → Quicktime Movie (NOT using Quicktime Conversion)
2) I used custom settings, using the aspect ratio of the slideshow
3) Compressor → Photo-JPG @ 75%
4) Pixel Aspect Ratio → Square

Once that is exported, you will have a nice, big, hi-res file that looks great. I then exported out of Quicktime to the smaller size using the H.264 compression for web use.

Others might have better answers, but that worked great for me.

Yeah, if you do a straight export you will get a nice big file. I then use Quicktime Pro ($30) to compress to whatever size and quality is needed.
