Editing for Iphone - Sequence Settings (FCP 7)? And other?
on Dec 16, 2012 at 10:44:15 pm

Hey all, Thanks in advance for any help.

I'm editing a video for use on the traditional iphone on Final Cut Pro 7. It's basically a series of stills animated Ken Burns style with pans and zooms.

It's my first time editing for iphone (and for that matter editing stills). Can anyone tell me what sequence settings I should be using to I. keep render times down to a minimum and also II. to get the best quality export when I'm ready to export and compress?

I know the frame size (640x960) but that's about it. The source media are pgn files ranging in size and also resolution from 1283x1650 to 2408x3508.

So basically ... what sequence settings should I use? and should I think about converting the files in some way before bringing them into final cut 7?

Thanks,

Jason

Use a native sequence setting that FCP likes. If I were you, I would use a ProRes 720p (1280x720) setting. When you are finished, export a self contained movie and drop that into Compressor and use the preset for iPhone.

I agree with Steve, use an HD Sequence to edit, then export and bring into compressor.

Some older threads on the subject, that helped me in the past, if you're interested in some reading. :)
