I have just started to work in broadcast , doing motion graphics and editing movies for comercial spots. ( Pal System, my area)
And I get stuck with some tecnical question that I need to understand so that I improve the quality of my productions and my workflow.
The company works this away.
A camara man films (using a Dv cam) what we need and then brings the camara and gives me a uncompressed file , with .mov format that , with the frame size 720*576 with pixel aspect ratio 1,09 , lower field, uncompressed Yuv 8 bit 4:2:2, and 11 minutes is like 13 Gb of space (at least that are the settings I get when I imported it to test it in AE)
For me to work this files, what the best format and codec, I should use to compress so that I work with smaller files that my machine can handle.
During my workflow I need to do pre-renders some parts of my animation that have video and complex effects that slow down a lot the computer.
I tryed to use mpg2 using the Pal DV High Quality Adobe media Encoder settings tha uses codec: MainConcept Mpeg Video .
The pre-renders looks good but when I do the final render the stuff that I pre-render just look bad , loose a lot of quality.
So the question is what the best format and codec, to do, the between stuff (Proxies,PreRenders,etc). So that I can do the final render and the image is cryspe and clear.
For final quest what is the best format to deliver to create the BETa Cam that is deliver to TV .
Thanks to all that can give me some help.
And sorry for any mispelled word .
