Need Uncompressed .MOV file for TV use
on Jun 26, 2011 at 3:40:57 pm

I am submitting my first music video for TV use.

The client has requested the video in "uncompressed MOV file"

Does this just refer to File > Export > Quicktime Movie?

He seems to think the file (1080P Canon 5D footage, 4 minute music video) should have a file size of roughly 2-3GB in his experience.

Any suggestions? Best settings to export for a music video that will be used internationally on TV?

THANKS!!

drop that file into Compressor and choose 8 bit uncompressed setting. 10 bit if you want a larger file size.

That data-rate belongs to some Prores or similar compressed codec.
Uncompressed will make much bigger files.
Does your client knows what is Uncompressed?

Hi Mate,

For HD:

In my experience it very much depends on the codecs of the system that will do the HDCAM dub.

We have tried loads of different versions including uncompressed 8 bit/10 bit (i.e. export quicktime movie, compressor none, size 1920x1080)

The AJA Codecs.

The best we found was the Blackmagic 1080i Uncompressed 10 bit codec (HD), that looked sweet on the HDCAM tape.

The footage was originally progressive, but Blackmagic didn't have a p version, they told me it wouldn't make a difference and it looked fine.

I think because the Dubbing house used Blackmagic in their HD dubbing process it worked the best.


For SD, just choose export quicktime uncompressed 10 bit.

If in doubt send a 20 sec clip through with different settings and ask him to see which one looks best - often find this is the best case solution!

nice 1
