    Graphics settings

    When importing jpgs into the system, I always end up with very blurry, unusable images.  Even Pan & Zoom filters don't seem to help.  Could someone please tell me the ideal graphic format/resolution to import and what settings I must be missing to get clean, usable images when editing?

    Assuming your JPEGs are high enough resolution to support big moves, take a look at these two tutorials.  The first shows how to get the best results out of Avid's Pan & Zoom, the second covers BCC's Pan & Zoom.

    What options are you selecting when you Import?

    Also, what size is the jpg that you're importing?  If it's 300x200, it's not going to look very good.  3000x2000 will be sharper.
