I read this statement on http://www.screeneditors.com website and it made me worried about onlining a couple of TVC's shot on Dvcam. the online will be 8bit uncompressed thru AJA component input. Do I have to blow the picts up? I didn't think I had to, but this has me worried. It's for PAL as well. Output to Digibeta.
"MiniDV has a very wide blanking that is outside broadcast specs. Fixing these kinds of errors lowers the quality of the pictures. On DV and DVCPro programs the quality drops away quite fast as the picture is blown up to reach the edges. This not only reduces the markets for your program but is also going to limit the life of your program."
