Best way for downconvert Full-HD to PAL
on Feb 17, 2009 at 7:50:45 am

Hello.
I have had Sony EX1 camera for six months now and I still have some issues about downconverting the videos for PAL versions.
Sometimes I have converted them with Compressor and sometimes I have taken the HD timeline to PAL timeline with Final Cut Pro but either way I get some flickering in the areas where are vertical lines and such. Then I have used the Flickering filter that came with FCP to reduce it and it looks "quite good".
So my question is what would be the best way (with program) to downconvert the video or how do you people usually do it?

Thanks

Mikko

What is the native frame rate of the EX-1 (I realize I could google it but what fun would that be?).

Are you reducing your HD frame size to PAL frame size or are we talking frame rates?

Is the flickering and interlaced issue or a video judder issue?

Yeah, sorry about not being so clear with this. I'm talking about resizing the HD to SD keeping the same frame rate. Judder was just the word I was looking at. In the detailed areas it gives a lot's of that. Like if you put 1 pixel high line and you would like to watch it in a TV it will judder. It's just too "sharp" image.

So what should be the optimal way to blur it a bit so it won't get too blurred? I have tried to scale it down using Compressor but it gives me the same result as scaling it with Final Cut Pro.

Thanks.

Mk
