Hi all !

downloaded episode version 4.4.2.

paid $400 for it !

but first...dont know how to use it. and second i need to find the right settings to be able to pass the DG FastChannel certification. I am on a G5 ( non intel ) and the spots are coming from a final cut pro 6.0.2

do i have to export from final cut at a certain setting ?
dg fast channle sent me some episode settings, but i dont know how to apply them!! there is no import menu in the application!

help !


PS_ was i supposed to buy Episode PRO ? for $900 ? or will the normal episode version encode to MPEG-2

You might go over to the Cow Telestream Episode Forum.

You export from FCP as you would for any other project. Use your Sequence settings.
Drop the mov file into the Batch window.

Drop the settings DG sent you into the Compression Settings window and then apply them to the mov file in the Batch window.

Chapter 4 Introduction to Episode
Chapter 5 Episode in Detail
Should tell you all the basics you need to know.

There's also a training DVD that normally sells for $99 but you get a 25% discount with Episode.

Episode does have some not so obvious ways of doing things so reading the Manual is a must (and it can still be confusing).
