HDV50 to NTSC SD DVD
on Sep 7, 2009 at 10:52:00 am

I am working on a HDV50 sequence I need to make an NTSC DVD copy for viewing
I exported a QT then using compressor I converted it into DV NTSC but the quality looks really bad
I know that there is a better setting that I've used once and I had really good result, I just cant remember what it was

(note to self.... save settings)

any suggestions guys? on how to convert to NTSC using compressor (i know there are better software, but I want to use what I have)

thanks

But don't go to DV, I would suggest going to ProRes or Uncompressed, DV is bringing in any type of compression and color sampling. If you don't need to do anything with the NTSC video I would try going straight to m2v.

HDV(4:2:0) > DV (4:1:1) >m2v (4:2:0)
HDV compression > DV compression > m2v compression.
Not good IMO

If you want to try something that you already have, for standards conversion you need to turn on Frame control and problem set to BEST. I would test a small section of the clip since it will be a long encode. If the results are not what you need Natress would be the next thing I tried.

I exported a ProRess file from FCP and imported into DVD Pro SD NTSC project
quality looks great
do you think this will work? will it play on NTSC TV?
I have no way to check that because I am in Europe, but I need t send this to the States

So you imported a PAL QT into a DVDSP NTSC project. I would see there are going to be issues. And the fact that you are flying blind would scare me.

"Quality looks great" How are you viewing this if you cannot check the disc?

Will it play, most likely, will there be issues, probably. For one, where will probably be interlace issues and frame retiming is done with the lest amount of care.

For me you are taking a shortcut that cuts out control and quality. You are also not saying if you are downconverting while you export to ProRes from FCP or our you just going from HDV to ProRes 1080? If you want detailed help you need to give detailed process.

But there is only one way to tell, you have to have access to a true NTSC monitor and DVD Player.
