Outputting HDV 1080i (PAL?)
on Apr 19, 2010 at 2:34:21 pm


I was hired on by a small business to cut a pile of tapes of conferences they held in Europe. (I am in the US - So CA.) While of course I knew of PAL, I never worked in it before, nor did my client realize it was PAL at the time. He is non-tech, and his shooter was from Australia.

Anyway, so the shows were already digitized in HDV 1050i50, 1920 x1440 I believe (or something like that, I'm not at their office right now.) The FCP was 6.0.2.

So, I didn't realize it was PAL when I was outputting (hadn't worked in that mode before, and didn't notice the "", thinking it was 1080i30) so I mistakenly output in QT A 1080i30, and the QT had black frames throughout.

I assume this was due to the differing formats? Also, I would like to output in a quicker way - any suggestions as to output/Compressor settings? Client mostly just wants DVDs for presentation and sales. I don't think he wants or needs to upload.
