I just started to work with Final Cut Pro to offer conversion services and most of the time I capture home videos from VHS/MiniDVs and have to convert them to some kind of file, so my clients can watch and edit their videos at home.
I also get professionals asking me to capture their tapes, so they can edit their videos. Most of the time these orders are on MiniDVs/HDV and DVCpro/DVCAM tapes.
All the captures are being done through an AJA ioHD.
Here are my questions:
- When exporting the home videos, what codec/resolution should I go with? I'm looking for something to export them quick and with a decent quality.
Usually for SD I go with the AJAioHD Apple Pro Res 525 29.97fps and for HD I go with the AJAioHD Apple Pro Res 720 29.97fps)
- Sometimes I need to export files to played on PCs...
Should I go with AVI?
- Another thing is that very often I see that the videos comes out with visible horizontal lines all over the video.
I know it is related to interlace/deinterlace... how do I get rid of them?
