I use the same settings, as you, with one exception - instead of 8-bit, choose 16-bit for the Sample Depth.
I also dislike using MP3 as a source. With the exception of tiny SFX files, I always convert these to PCM/WAV (Uncompressed) 48KHz 16-bit, before Import. That does NOT restore all the data lost with the MP3 compression (I hate the sound with MP3, but that's a different topic), but it gives me the best source to edit. I use Adobe Audition, but the free Audacity does a great job of this.
Hope that the 16-bit does the trick for you.
BTW - what are you using to play the resulting MOV?
Thank you very much Bill, that did it. I'm surprised at the difference it made.
(I'm using Quicktime Pro to play the video)
Glad that handled the situation, and thank you for reporting.
I also use QT Pro 7.5.5, but the reason that I asked is that many users have recently had issues with the current 7.6.x series of QT Player. Since the Bit-depth helped, and you are not having other issues with PrPro, the version is probably moot.
