Best export settings?
on Jan 5, 2010 at 2:19:49 am

Hi all,

I've been compiling 720x576 footage of various formats (HDV, DV, MPEG 2) to use on a showreel.

I want to know what are the best settings to export the movie?

By clicking export; using quicktime conversion, from there what settings should I select?
I've tried DV PAL Anamorphic, "Best Quality" but there is a obvious loss of quality from the original.
8 Bit uncompressed seemed better but vertical stripes appeared on some parts of the footage?

Can anyone recommend a high quality video/audio setting?

Many thanks,

Geoffrey

Hi Geoffry,
Forget about QT Conversion.
Edit in a Prores sequence and export from the time-line with "Current setting".

Thanks Rafael,

I should have mentioned I am using Final Cut Pro version 5.1 as I'm having trouble finding the prores sequence preset.

Any more tips?

That's because ProRes hadn't been invented yet...

Managed to get hold of an educational version of FCP 7 to give ProRes a go.

Which setting would you recommend?

Apple Pro Res 422 (HQ) PAL 48kHz
Apple Pro Res 422 (HQ) PAL 48kHz Anamorphic
Apple Pro Res 422 (LT) PAL 48kHz
Apple Pro Res 422 (LT) PAL 48kHz Anamorphic
Apple Pro Res 422 (Proxy) PAL 48kHz
Apple Pro Res 422 (Proxy) PAL 48kHz Anamorphic
Apple Pro Res 422 PAL 48kHz
Apple Pro Res 422 PAL 48kHz Anamorphic

Once I've finished editing do I just to go EXPORT - QUICKTIME MOVIE, then select current settings?
Will it export as a FCP file or mov file? What is best for archiving?

Thanks so much for your help!

For archiving and/or mastering to a digital file, export as a self contained Quicktime Movie. It will have an icon in the Finder that appears to be a FCP file, but in fact it will be a .mov quicktime file.
