Hi,

I'm trying to upload a video that was shoot in XDCAM 720p 25fps, but the Codecs they accept are:

HDV, DVCPRO HD, MJPEG (for interlaced footage)
PhotoJPEG (for non-interlaced footage)

Anyone know the best method of converting to one of these without losing quality?

Thanks

Olly Lawer

Upload to what?

Transcoding to most codecs involves quality loss. The question is can you see it and under what circumstances. Whoever the "they" is has VERY LIMITED codec options. Otherwise I'd suggest Apple ProRes for best quality or H.264 for best combination of quality and efficiency depending on the data rate accepted.

Next time shot EX at 25Mbps.
That is pure HDV.

In a world where people fret over 35Mbps because many broadcasters want 50Mbps, I can't imagine dropping to 25Mbps (HDV) because one entity insists on that format. I can't help but believe such isn't capable of a higher format especially since they accept DVCProHD. They seriously sound WAY BEHIND modern technology if they're not accepting XDCAM or AVCIntra formats.
