I got specs from an agency to make our final spot an MPEG2 with the following specs:
Mpg2 muxed program stream
Mpg-2 (1 file containing both video and audio)
Video: 720 X 480, 5 - 8 mbps, 29.97 fps , color space 4:2:0
Audio: Mpg-1 Layer 2 : 192kbps , 48khz
Stream type: MPEG-2 MP@ML
Resolution: 720 x 480
Aspect ratio: 4:3 Generic
datarate : 5 - 8 mbps, that is bitrate: 5000000 - 8000000 Bit/Sec
Chroma format: 4:2:0, closed gop
Size : approx : 38 - 60 MB for 1 minute
The problem is that I set everything exactly as they have listed in squeeze and the resulting QT file comes out as 640x480 - is this because qt pro is displaying it in a weird way or am i actually setting something wrong - i set it to maintain aspect ratio as 720x480 so i dont see what i am doing wrong.
Please someone help i need to make this in the next 30 mins for client posting!!
