Converting 1440x1080 to 1920x1080 Properly?
on Nov 25, 2012 at 11:33:16 pm

I'm on a project that's thinking about shooting with a HVX-200 in AVC-50 for budget reasons. This will produce video that's 1440x1080 HD. That size is fine for what we're already confirmed for, but our producer hopes to get the project syndicated to local, commercial stations. Some of those stations broadcast in 1920x1080.

I read somewhere that I can edit this image size in 1920x1080 and everything would look fine. I'm assuming to export I would have to specify that I want the image size to be 1920x1080. Is that the best way to change the size and preserve as much quality as possible? If not, what's the best way? From what I've read, conversion will change the pixel size from non-square to square. I'm hoping proper conversion won't make everything look badly stretched out and everyone 10 pounds heavier. How bad is the stretch?

I have to talk to my producer this week so any information you can give would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Edit on a 1920x1080 Square pixels sequence and export a QT movie (no QT Conversion).
That's all.
You can also edit and export 1440x1080 and upscale in Compressor, with "Frame Control ON" to 1920x1080 Squared pixels.
