I shot an infomercial for a local company that will be broadcast on a number of stations throughout the area. I used a Panasonic HVX-200a with all footage being shot in 720/30p and downconverted to SD 720x486 in After Effects (since 99% of the footage involved a green screen).
My current plan is to export each scene from After Effects as a Quicktime (animation codec), import them into an 8-bit uncompressed sequence in Final Cut Pro, and piece them together for export to Digi Beta tape. I haven't exported anything to tape since some MiniDV projects in school am wondering if there's anything I should keep in mind/look out for. One thing I was specifically wondering about was interlacing. All my footage is currently progressive but I've read some places that I'll need to introduce interlacing prior to exporting to Digi Beta. Is this true (and if it is, how do I do it)?
Any other help/tips/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
