My delivery format for a TV network is asking for XDCAM HD422 (50 mb/s) or XDCAM HD (35 mb/s). HD 1080i/59.94 in 16:9 aspect ratio.
Using multiple cameras of different formats I converted all footage to 1080i/29.97 Apple ProRes 422 and Apple XDCam EX 1080p30 which plays at 29.97.
I used easy setup in FCP for XDCam EX 1080i60 (35 VBR) which sets up the sequence for 29.97. Can anyone tell me if this is correct and will I have trouble exporting 1080i/59.94 for the network in the end?
Thanks Shane. Can I edit in a 29.97 sequence and then export into 59.94 to meet their standards? All footage imported as no field dominance so should I change them to upper or lower or leave them at none?
