I started with DSLR T2i footage that I did not convert in FCP 7. I then added JVC-100 footage to the sequence. I exported a quictime movie and burned in DVD Studio Pro using compressor. The result was a jittery DVD. I now want to save the project and give it on time, (it is overdue actually) to the client. Can I save the sequence? Can I change the sequence properties and render. PLEASE HELP!!!!
So far we only know the camera codecs. What are your sequence settings and how did you get from FCP to DVDSP.
Also can you describe what you mean by jittery and how were you watching the DVD. Interlace settings for the sequence and DVD are what? What is your frame rate and do the frame rates match between the two cameras and the sequence.
Is it only the DVD that looks jittery and how are you monitoring FCP (external monitor etc.
I got from FCP by exporting from current project settings and made a self contained Quicktime movie. Then into compressor and used 120 minute DVD setting. The jitter was when any movement occured at all.
I changed my project settings to XD Cam per someones opinion on a website. I am truly stuck at the moment.
Your sequence settings should be ProRes. Whoever said XDCAM needs to be shot. Neither sources are XDCAM, and it is a complex format.
If you did NOT convert the H.264 that the Canon shoots, then, well...bad. ALWAYS convert that to ProRes. But since you have no time, make a ProRes sequence that matches the frame rate of both formats (please tell me the frame rates match)...and then put your footage into that sequence.
