I need some help. I have a :60 spot (1920x1080, NTSC, 29.97) edited in fcp. The client wants a version in PAL MPEG-2 720x576 16x9,
25fps for broadcast in the UK. Any suggestions on the best route to take for this?
Do the frame rate conversion first. Use Compressor if you want it free, Twixtor if you don't mine spending a few hundred bucks for good frame rate conversion software, or a production house where you'll spend about four figures.
As to the PRECISE delivery specifications for mpeg2 in the UK, you will have to contact the organization to which you'll deliver the file.
