Just a couple general questions for you professionals.
Here's what I'm running (If it's relevant):
Mac 8-core 2.8ghz
Final Cut Pro 7
After Effects CS4
AJA kona LS card
I have a couple clients now asking me to post their tv spots so they can have the tv stations download them for broadcast, as opposed to sending them a beta sp tape. I have always preferred to send a tape, but the download factor is a time saver.
What are the drawbacks to doing this? What video codec is recommended? And does it have to be 720x486 or is 720x480 ok for broadcast?
