This is my first post and first off, i would like to thank everyone in this forum as I have learnt alot through the many professionals here!
My department has recently bought 2 EX3s and we are currently shooting on 720p50. We are using FCP 6.0.5 and what we normally do is, export from timeline to Compressor with frame control on with DV Settings, however there are many jaggy lines during pans and tilts and several broadcasters are complaining about it. I would appreciate if anyone could tell me a proper or successful way to convert HD to SD with little or no jaggy lines or twitter.
We are using AJA LHE with Breakout Box. Is down converting thru AJA a better option? Thank guys!
Thanks alot Don! Will try it out as soon as i can! By the way, when you say turn down the edge detail, do you mean just the level selection under detail sub menu? Cause i cant find edge detail anywhere. Thanks again!
[Perry Lam]"By the way, when you say turn down the edge detail, do you mean just the level selection under detail sub menu?"
That's correct. Choose your picture profile and edit the detail settings, both the level and the frequency parameters. The detail setting in the picture profile affects edge detail. There's always so much dialed in from the factory to the point that it's quite excessive. Do some tests and compare the differences and you'll see what I mean.
