Exporting for digital upload
on Sep 22, 2011 at 7:36:48 pm

I have a roughly 15 minute movie that I want to upload to a film festival. The footage in the FCP timeline is Apple 422HQ. How do I export this for the best quality to send to the fest. Another question is that I have a few FX shots that were exported from Adobe After Effects as AVI's... do I have to pro-res the AVI's into 422HQ to fit the rest of the clips?

Thanks for your help!

What format does the Festival want it in?

Yup, Stephen's absolutely right: you need to investigate a bit more and learn the delivery specifications. There isn't a set "Film Festival Delivery" encoding.

You shouldn't have to do much at all. First, get rid of those AVI's! Have your After Effects person render PNG image sequences instead.

I work in After Effects on a Windows machine at home, and I edit on FCP at work. I render PNG image sequences (they're lossless), open the sequences in QT Pro in the appropriate frame rate, then export quicktime movies in my editing codec. It works like a charm.
