Export from Final Cut looking bad

[ New ]

My footage looks great in Final Cut Pro X, super clean and hardly any difference to the Canon M50 footage on the same timeline. The problem is when I export - the Gopro footage looks terrible, as if it is from a 10 year old mobile phone. The M50 footage in the smae file looks perfect.

 

Importing the GoPro footage straight from the SD card into Final Cut.

Exporting as Apple Devices 1080p, H.264 Better Quality, 1920x1080.

 

Not sure why this is happening, the export is unusable.

 

Any help greatly appreciated.

Probably an export setting ?

 

I am using FCP X and it works fine.

My export settings are above. Anything else I should be checking?

The file has a bunch of 1080 footage from a Canon M50 and I’m dropping in some GoPro clips which are 2.7k. Exporting as 1080.
