QUESTION: The quickstart isn't giving the expected results?

I'm getting some fuzzyness around the edges with the Quickstart tutorial. I'm using the sample files, set my white/black to 42/18, rendering with "High Quality" and it seems like I'm getting excessive fuzzyness around the edges. I've attached a screen dump of the actors head from the final frame of the movie. Is this the way its supposed to look?

Are you sure you started the project in PAL settings? I believe the quickstart footage is shot in PAL.

As Turin said, setting the project up correctly it important - make sure you choose DV-PAL progressive, otherwise you could get unpredictable results.

I used to have that problem until I switched to PAL.
