HD file to SD digi tape via AJA Kona 3
on Jul 11, 2012 at 8:46:08 am

Hi all,

I have a 1920x1080 at 25fps Prores 444 file and want to downconvert it from FCP 7 and AJA kona3 and output it directly to my DVW M2000P deck.
Can someone pls tell me the procedure cause no matter what I have tried, the output quality is very low.

Thanks.

2 minds are better than one.

There isn't enough information to let us make an accurate diagnosis. It could be the settings on the deck or the settings of your AJA card.

And the term, "the video quality is very low" isn't helpful, either. It could mean there is a frame rate mismatch, the colors are wrong, etc.

Please elaborate on what you're actually doing.

SD will never look as good as the HD signal.

If your card is outputting and down-converting and the edit is laying off to tape. You have everything right.
