720 or 1080?
on Sep 12, 2011 at 8:47:43 pm

I am making videos for children's church to use in churches across the U.S. All Churches have different t.v's,projectors. I am using final cut x. What is my best chance to make my videos compatible across most computers that churches use? I am going to give them a choice of a dvd or a data dvd. What video formats should I use on the data dvd? Also I don't want to make large files. Maybe h.264.

Re: 720 or 1080? How 'bout 480?

I'm willing to bet there will be a lot of SD playback. I think I'd offer a widescreen DVD, or a data DVD with a 720p H.264 file, an 864x480 SD Widescreen H.264 file, and a 640x480 center-punch 4x3 SD H.264 file.

That pretty much covers all your bases.

I have the new final cut x. What is my best way of exporting that to those dimensions. I have mpeg streamclip. Here is what I have done.

1.I exported out of final cut using the apple pro res.
2. I opened that file in mpeg stream. Then exported out using 720, 480, in mpeg stream clip.

Is there a better way to do this? Or should I buy compresser? Will these files work great? Or am I making it bad quality by exporting twice? Your thoughts?

Also just so I have it right?

720P h.264
864x480 h.264
640x480 h.264
