FTP changes format ...
on Mar 5, 2013 at 3:53:54 pm

Hi, I have a mate in Africa (somewhere out of the loop) and he has the strangest problem. Everything he has shot/edited and delivered was in PAL. He has NO NTSC equipment with him.

He FTP'd the clip yet the end user writes back saying that it has arrived in NTSC.

He has sent me a list of what he did;

Video
Format : MPEG Video
Commercial name : IMX 30
Format version : Version 2
Format profile : 4:2:2@Main
Codec ID: mx3p
Bit rate mode: Constant
Maximum bit rate : 30.0 Mbps
Encoded bit rate : 30.1 Mbps
Width: 720 pixels
Height : 576 pixels
Original height : 608 pixels
Display aspect ratio : 4:3
Frame rate mode: Constant
Frame rate : 25.000 fps
Standard : PAL
Bit depth : 8 bits
Scan type: Interlaced
Scan order : Top Field First (upper field first)
Compression mode : Lossy


Audio
Format : PCM
Bit rate mode : Constant
Bit rate: 1 536 Kbps
Channel(s) : 2 channels
Sampling rate : 48.0 KHz
Bit depth: 16 bits

I apologise for asking on his request, but with the time difference, broadband availability etc, I said I'd ask the pro's and get back to him.

Any ideas as to why this should be happening?

Just to update, I did have a similar problem when using ‘Fetch’. I changed to ‘Filezilla’ and the problem was resolved. You may think that a change in FTP programme may be appropriate ...?

I'm not terribly experienced in this area, but have had good experiences with FileZilla. If its working for you now, why not stick with it?

FYI, if these are the specs, there is NOTHING that FTP transfer can do to convert PAL to NTSC. I would say it's the other end user's problem.

Mark,

Yes, I tend to agree with you. My mate’s client is a little difficult to say the least and refuses to believe that it is their fault. I was sent a copy of the clip and dumping it straight into FCPv7, I could see that it was PAL all the way through.

Thanks again.

Stuart
