Cineform Quality settings
on Mar 18, 2018 at 1:39:12 am

Hello, what quality setting should I use for cineform? my native footage is avchd. I know I could edit native but I've tried and I don't like how avchd has the clips in a folder structure and I'd like to transcode and rename the files. Also learned the hard way if you rename the avchd .mts clips it messes up the media.

I've heard 3 setting in cineform is high quality and it is supposedly required for DVD but I tried 2 setting for medium and it looked almost identical. Can I use medium quality setting to DVD as well?

Also, what does cineform.com mean when it says filmscan 2 quality is for rigorous post? How do you define what that is? If I'm cropping scaling, color grading, using green screen chorma key etc is that rigorous post? Should I just use the highest quality since I have the storage space and not worry if I'm doing what's classfied as rigorous post?

Thanks,

Bryce

Cineform YUV 10 bit will do just fine.
If you are using Encore for dvd export out of Premiere as mpeg2-dvd.

High is just fine ! Filmscan 1 and 2 will put a lot of stress on your computer / cpu and your footage will not gain anything i quality !

okay thanks,

What about say for instance I do lots of scaling. I often will be editing chroma key green screen and scaling different objects etc from video. Should I use filmscan then?

I do know bad things happen if you transcode half sampling down to 4:2:2 instead of 4:4:4. You're losing half your chroma information in the transcode. you visually won't see it, but your keying plugin will.

also, if you do any gamma changes, you need to export to a 10 bit codec as seen here.
