I have a project which I need to output as WMV for use in Powerpoint presentations (large screen playback etc).
I've tried various settings exporting from FCP with varying results. My original sequence settings are: Frame Size = 1024x576 / Pixel Ratio = Square / Field Dominance = None / Compressor = Apple Pro Res 422 / Quality = 100%
At an earlier stage (it's been a very long day) I managed to export a WMV of a 5 minute sequence with subtitles. When I open this WMV in Quicktime player the properties are as follows:
Format: H264, 1024x576, Millions, Linear PCM, 16 Bit Little Endian signed integer, 2 channels, 48000 Hz FPS: 25 Data Size: 283.2 MB Data Rate: 6,764.61 kbit/s
But whatever settings I've tried since I can't seem to replicate this file, which looks great!
I should have mentioned in the original post that I already have Flip4Mac (HD Pro) and Compressor on my machine. WMV attemps with Compressor haven't been great in the past. I also have Mpeg Streamclip.
My client wants to use the final WMV files in Powerpoint Presentations so I'm looking for an ideal setting to export files that aren't too big to play off most laptops but that will look good when scaled up to a projector screen.
