Default IMPORTING GFX Files at better compression

We are working in a newsroom and have everything set to DV25.
Live footage doesn't look that bad but animated graphics and stills brought in at DV25 look like ***** - artifacts/visual compression.
Is there a way we can import GFX in a better compression/codec and use on the same timeline as DV25 footage?
Cheers.

Remember that if you are exporting to the Stratus in your newsroom it will be using the DV25 codec as a house format. It will eventually be compressed to this format. If the graphics are coming from the Stratus then they will already have been encoded at DV25 (or DVPro50 if you're lucky) or possibly AVC Intra 100 if its in HD.

You can of course circumvent the DV25 format by importing media directly to the project but that will mean that the media is not registered on the Stratus for producers/journalists to look at. Bear in mind that you will still be exporting it to DV25 eventually.

My best advice is to make sure that the colours are legal (for SD transmission) and perhaps apply DCT smoothing to eliminate compression artefacts around high contrast colours.

That all sounds great if only I knew how to do all that. Training and support where I work has been minimal.

In Edius bin window right click and select Add File, use Transfer to Project and choose the file you want to use. It would probably be on a USB stick? This will be copied directly into your project folder and should play perfectly in Edius.

The quality will be better in the edit suite but will suffer upon export, this is unavoidable when using DV25 as a delivery codec.
