File Export...

Morning/Afternoon/Evening

I have a FCP sequence, completed with clock and sting. lovely.

It is to be used as an online promo and the guy over in the online department has said only this about the format to send the file in:

"Best is to receive a DV25 quicktime movie. They can use Yousendit or FTP to our account"...


Now, its for rest-of-world playout, so needs to be PAL but Ive never heard of DV25 and some research has turned up uncertain answers that it can be any form of DV.. i.e DV-PAL, DVCPRO-PAL, DVCPRO HD, DVCPRO50-PAL.

The original files were HD, (1920 x 1080), and there is some text in there created in motion. Upon exporting as a DVPRO file, when I looked it back, the text was not as sharp as it should be and this has me worried...

So, DV25, what is it....and can I get an export where everything is nice, crisp and clean.

Cheers.

DV25 will NOT be Nice and clean and sharp - it is a lower quality codec. Hence the smaller file size. Give em what they want.

Use Compressor.

Export your HD edit "current settings"

Drop that file into compressor. Create a 4X3 Letterbox SD DV25 File.
Turn on frame controls set to best.

DV25 probably means DV-PAL as the 25 is most likely to mean 25fps. Mixing terminology like that can be terribly confusing as a number like that following the codec can often refer to the data rate rather than the frame rate, but as you don't get variable data rates with DV, I think it must mean the frame rate.

thanks for both replies!

Using compressor has helped and in hindsight, as the person relaying the info wasnt that clued in DV25 most likely is DV-PAL, 25fps....

Anyway....Its done and uploading to their FTP site. Once its up then I may/may not let y'all know ;)

If I recall, DV25 refers to the data rate. Just as DVCPro50 and DVCPRO100 are the same codec, with different bit rates for the compression.

DV25 is the codec for MiniDV

Right DV25 are all the 25Mbps DV flavors:
- DV PAL
- DVCPro25 PAL
- DV/DVCPro NTSC.
In PAL-land, DV and DVCpro25 are different codecs: DV is 420, while DVCpro25 is 411.
In NTSC-land, DV and DVCPro are exactly the same. Both are 411.

Steven and Rafael get the prize...

The guy in the online dept. who suggested that you deliver DV25 should get demoted. DV25 is not a good choice unless absolutely required.
