We currently have a DVCPRO HD 1080i sequence and I would like to export an ipod ready movie of our sequence.
The problem is that instead of letter boxing the image it distorts it to fit the 4:3 aspect ratio
The only way I get arround it is by creating a 320x180 QT file but it yields a file much larger than an ipod native MP4
Can anyone tell me how to properly create an ipod file direct from an HD project?
Take your 1080i footage or sequence, Nest it in a 4:3 sequence, and render to the iPod export setting. In QT there are no options other than iPod, so its straight-forward. The footage will be letterboxed in the frame.
It worked for me with some HDCAM footage I had on my drives. Should be no different with DVCPRO HD.
