Please be aware that Compressor will occasionally (read inconstantly) introduce a 1-pixel 50% opacity green line around your video when you downscale from HD to 720×480.

Downscaled Prores 422 (HQ) renders from Davinci Resolve and from FCP 7 have this problem. Recompressing the video to Prores 422 HQ in Compressor before downscaling fixes this problem (but isn’t the most elegant solution).

The easier, more straightforward fix is to use Compressor 4.
