Last Ditch effort...
on Jan 3, 2009 at 12:34:10 am

Hello to all...
I have left posts many times in the Adobe flash forum, but I never received an answer. I've tried video co-pilot and also hulu.com and a few other video intense sites. Here's what I am looking for:
I am launching a new site middle of next week I want to use adobe encoder and flash. I have tried many different settings and I would like to know if there is one that can handle what I am trying to do. I am trying to emulate http://www.hulu.com and get some good quality video placed on my site which will be updated every week. I have used my Canon XL 2 at 30p to shoot us and the quality is just not that good. I tried many different settings and nothing seems to give me the result I see on other sites. I am thinking of going to my sony hdr-fx1 and shooting everything in HDV instead and hope to get a better result. The only problem I see is that on the settings for adobe encoder, they don't have an hdv 1080i setting. Will the video have problems because of that or will it work ok if I leave the export settings at normal?

Please give me guidance, this site will make or break me!

Chuck

HDV will certainly give you higher quality than DV and I'm sure the Adobe encoder won't have a problem dealing with the HDV 1080i source, just remember to deinterlace it.

I seem to remember you used to use compressor, any reason why you switched to Adobe media encoder?
Also, forget about getting a high quality encode from the supplied Adobe presets, you need to get under the hood to get the best out of it

If you're at a make or break situation with the new site, I wouldn't personally risk it all before you have your encoding settings and production workflow sorted out perfectly.

I switched from compressor to flash because after doing test compressions with compressor, the file sizes were bigger than I though I would have space for at first for the site. So I started to dabble in Adobe flash and encoder and the file sizes were more to what I feel we needed. Also people around here who have been helping me said that using flash would be the best way to compress the video down. Also I am starting to do a great deal more work with AE and my partner use adobe everything, so now i am at a point where I gotta decide whether or not to stay with FCP or change over to pre. and hope to have a easy workflow. Now when you say deinterlace would I do that in FCP or in the render settings in encoder?

Thanks for the help;
Chuck

I'm not sure if you are aware that compressor can produce Flash On2 and H.264 output and is a much better encoder than the Adobe one. As for deinterlacing we covered that the last time I replied to one of your posts:
