Apple Compressor Export as Progressive but still Creates Fields
on Feb 13, 2013 at 8:47:35 pm

I am trying to export a video from Apple Compressor.
The source video is 720p progressive.
It was created on a PC using Adobe Premiere CS6.
The sequence is progressive and looks great.
We exported an uncompressed quicktime.
and then on a mac converted it to ProRes and still looks amazing and sharp)
But after exporting from Apple Compressor for the final compression (for upload) it looks like butt.
It clearly added fields. But Quicktime is telling me it is progressive.
I am not using a deinterlace filter and I did set it to progressive in the settings.
I used to use compressor a few years back and had this same problem.
I had much better luck exporting right from Premiere. But the co I'm working at swears by Compressor. It's hard to believe Compressor is not capable of exporting without scanlines. But the fix seems like some great hidden secret.

Help!

Here is a cropped screenshot of both:

Havent had a chance to test this yet but I noticed in a tutorial video for compressor where the guys says to turn on the frame control option (where you setup scanline options) if the source uses fields. Mine does not use fields, so I want to try with the whole whole frame control section turned off. [fingers crossed]

Couple of thoughts.

1) You might want to try Cinec - http://www.cinemartin.com/cinec/ ; free prores encoding on a PC
2) I'm guessing that Compressor thinks it has fields, you should be overriding the 'automatic' control for this.
3) QuickTime is showing you what the file says; progressive, not what happened to the data.

Best,
