2/3 Questions 1080p to 1080i and FCPX FHA
on Oct 11, 2013 at 1:50:01 pm

Hi guys

I have to deliver a music video in ProRes 422.

The footage was shot in 1080p and delivery is required in 1080i FHA.

Firstly, do I have to do anything to the footage to make it FHA?

Secondly, how do I convert in Compressor or export from FCPX at 1080i

Thirdly(!) Any idea how to add a 10 sec countdown leader in FCPX?

Many thanks in advance people.

Dan

What does FHA mean? I've not heard that before.

Last time I heard the term it was used with SD-tape material.. FHA= Full Height Anamorphic?

Exactly, Full Height Anamorphic. I don't think it applies to my 16:9 1080p footage but it is specifically listed in the delivery format requirements for HD content "16:9 FHA".

I just want to make sure that the file I send them is correct first time.

Federal Housing Authority?

Wouldn't Full Height Anamorphic refer to an SD version? HD isn't anamorphic. Even anamorphic formats like DVCProHD aren't technically called anamorphic.

I guess I'd start by making a 1080i sequence and going from there. That will accommodate 24p, 30p, 60p footage without any conversions needed. It'll add the pulldown to any 24p, and 60p will get each frame mapped to a field. 30p just gets each frame duplicated to two fields.

If it wasn't in the UK I'd agree that it must be the Fed Housing Authority!

But I think you're right, hence my confusion on seeing it on the spec sheet.

Many thanks for your help.

[Dan Rayner] "The footage was shot in 1080p and delivery is required in 1080i FHA."

That is an errant way to describe the image.

It should really be called full 16x9 or full 1.78 aspect.

They just want to avoid the black bars top and bottom that happen when people shoot with RED's 2:1 aspect ratio

Thanks Gary. And do you think they'll have issues if letterboxing is used for aesthetic purposes?

[Dan Rayner] "do you think they'll have issues if letterboxing is used for aesthetic purposes?"

With the way the spec was written, I would assume so.

Exception might be if you used a color other than black for it.

Note too that that also might refer to something called AFD ( auto file description) that tags horizontally compressed media like HDV and DVCProHD content to play in proper wide screen aspect ratio in HD.

just a guess with out reading thru all the specs.
