I have a jpg that at 100% looks pretty sharp in the SOURCE frame when I add it to the sequence it doesn't look as sharp in the PROGRAM window. What is happening? Can I keep it sharp in the PROGRAM SEQUENCE?
Let's try to narrow things down a bit.
What are the pixel x pixel dimensions of the JPEG(s)?
What is the Sequence's Frame Size?
Are you using any Scaling, either with Scale to Default Frame Size in Preferences, Scale to Frame Size from the Project Panel, or with the Fixed Effect>Motion>Scale?
