Final Cut Export to Broadcast with MPEG-2 HD Multiplexed, PAL
on Oct 26, 2012 at 2:56:57 pm

Dear All,

Again, I need some assistance in exporting with these settings from Final Cut Pro. Or should I use compressor?:

Format: MPEG-2 HD Multiplexed, PAL
Size: 1920x1080
Frame rate: 25 fps
Field order: None (progressive)
Bitrate: 25 Mbps Constant bitrate (CBR)
Color primaries: ITU-R Rec. 709
Audio format: MPEG-1, Layer II Audio, Stereo 16 bit, 48 KHz, 384 kbps bitrate

How can I export or compress my video to fit?
My edit is in FULL HD (1920x1080), compressed from RED RAW 4K. fps is: 23.98

Thank you!

You should use compressor, as you will have more control to optimize the encode.

I just don't really get compressor. Which setting shall I use? and how can PAL still be
1920x1080 in size?

Thanks

PAL is mainly a frame rate...especially in HD. In SD it was frame rate and frame size different than NTSC. But now, HD unified frame size. PAL is 25fps. PAL HD is 1920x1080 25fps...or 1280x720 50fps. 1080i50 is PAL 25fps interlaced. 1080p25 is PAL 25fps progressive.

NTSC and PAL do not really exist in HD video. Most folks refer to them this way because of the frame rate, but it is not correct for a spec to be HD and PAL. If you are unfamiliar with compressor I would start with the stock settings and encode a small portion of the most likely footage where you would see compression artifacts ie fast motion, hard lines ect. and then adjust the parameters until that section looks good.

Compression and compressor are to big in scope to give you a tutorial in a forum post and to be honest every piece of video is unique and may require custom settings to optimize the encode. The stock settings in compressor are a good start. The is also a manual that comes with the software that will describe what each of the settings are.

Start with the MPEG2 program stream and then customize the settings in the inspector tab. Make sure you save your settings.
