Transcode won't let me use HDV 1080i (It's not listed) Why?

Hi,

I started a new project and the footage was shot at 1080i 60 1440 x 1080 HDV from on a Mini DV. I captured it in Final Cut and I am AMA Linking it in Avid and going to transcode it in there.

2 things:

When I open up Avid and start a new project it asks me to se my settings. Here is how I did it.

1) Format = 1080i/59.94

2) Color Space YcBr 709

3) Stereoscopic = Off

4) Aspect Ration = 16:9

5) Raster Dimension = 1920 x 1080

The Selected raster dimension supports the following raster types:

a) Standard

b) AVC Intra 100

c) XDCAM HD 50

d) XDCAM EX

I then open up Avid, AMA LInk the footge, select all of it, then go to the Transcode Window.

I want to Transcode the footage using Target Resolution HDV 1080i. It is not Listed. The one that is the default is DNxHD 145 MXF. Why is HDV 1080i not listed. I did this before with different footage and HDV 1080i was listed and I did Transcode to it.

What am I doing wrong? Is there a setting I am missing?

Thanks in advance

You can only transcode to the project settings you are in. Since your current project is 1920 x 1080 you can't transcode to 1440 x 1080.

Most people want to get out of the HDV codec. DNXHD is far superior for performance and rendering, btw.

Ok so your footage is HDV, but Id suggest dumping it for something / anything will be better, as soon as you possibly can. Transcode to avid format.

Hi Peter, I had a question about this too.

I'm in a similar position. I have a ton of HDV footage (80 hours) that was shot at 23.98, and 53 hours of full HD DSLR footage that was shot at 23.98 as well. I am trying to edit it all in Avid, and my first question - how to get the HDV in.

Bringing it in with a DNx220 codec looks pretty good, but the files are huge (over 100GB for each hour).

I can pull it in off of a deck, but then the timecode breaks every time there was a break in recording. Or, I can pull it through a black magic, but the problem there is that the the original timecode from the tapes isn't recorded in the black magic card, so I can never go back to those tapes in an online.

What would you recommend here? I'm having a hell of a time with it.

Thank you so much.
