HDV export out of sync
on Dec 27, 2009 at 7:35:53 am

Hi
I am editing an HDV sequence.
When I export a mov file with DV PAL ANAMORPHIC settings it works fine.
Yesterday I exported the sequence in HDV 1080i50 (The format of the clips), the movie looked a bit jerky and out of sync.

Can anyone explain the reason behind it please?

I am working on iMAC
3.06 Ghz and 3 GB RAM

If you transcode that HDV to ProRes during capture, then edit it as ProRes, or render it to ProRes once it's captured (you do this by setting the HDV sequence to be rendered to ProRes - setting for this is found in that sequence's settings). You'll find the exports work much better.

Hi but will the ProRes encoded file play on other MAC's without FCP?
And what if I have to give the file as HDV only?
What should I do to fix the problem?

[Pradip Patil] "Hi but will the ProRes encoded file play on other MAC's without FCP? "

The latest versions of Quicktime playback ProRes without FCP installed.

[Pradip Patil] "And what if I have to give the file as HDV only?"

Why would have you to do that Pradip? There are actually very, very few, if any, good reasons imaginable for delivering back to anyone as HDV.

Among professionals, HDV is widely accepted as a shooting codec, but not as an editing or delivery codec. Keep in mind, you lose a generation and hammer your graphics and text with an extra compression step when outputting HDV to back to tape.
