Sequence settings for 720x480
on Dec 7, 2009 at 7:26:16 am

Hi

I have a pile of footage shot in 1080P30 (VBR)

FCP 6.06
2x2.8 quad core intel 14GB memory

I have to deliver in 720x480.
My sequence settings are as follows

frame: 720x480 NTSC DV 3x2
Pixel aspect: NTSC- CCIR/DV
dominance: none
Compressor XDCAM HD 1080p30 (VBR)

Is this what i should be running it in. The reason i ask is that with any zooms i get a random stutter in the movement. ie it doesnt seem to happen in the same place.
The other point of interest is the color when the video is stopped is different to when it plays. Is there some color space controls that i am neglecting somewhere?

The same material dumped into a PRO RES 422 (HQ) sequence with the same frame and pixel settings seems to yeild much smoother and better results. I feel like im missing something.

thanks for any advice...

Anthony

This question was answered beautifully by Don Greenberg on 12/1. See "4x3 SD/DV or Pro-Res Sequence?" post.

good reading, Although i have noticed that using the NTSC pixel ratio settings seems to squash my image. And if i use the square pixels it comes out looking the right shape. (3/2)

Funny thing is i have some footage that was shot by another person with the same camera settings and it seems to only render down correctly to a to a 4/3 window despite having the 720x480 window box checked and NTSC CCIR601 pixel ratio.

both apple pro res (HQ) windows

Im getting more confused...
