Conversion problem
on Sep 18, 2013 at 8:49:06 am

Hello

I wonder if anyone could assist me through a conversion issue. this is what has occured: I had different settings to what my footage was in settings of a sequence. So for instance the clip settings were set wrong to how the footage was logged and captured at Xdcam but come out at 10801 hdv 25fps - so when it comes to converting it from a raw file in streamclip to a mp4 its very pixelated

is there anyway I can avoid redoing the whole edit - as I'm going to miss my deadline now - I thought that by doing conform to sequence would rectify the problem and turn all the clips into Xdcam but no such luck it appears

Thanks in advance

Jay

I'm not able to run FCP any more so can't test this, but can you create a new sequence with the right settings and paste the contents of your existing sequence into the new one?
You might need to use some Paste Attributes too if you need to rescale all the clips.

I'm not so au fait with Log and Capture - does that actually create ProRes versions of your originals or just copy the files. I wonder maybe if the L&C might have created resized source files?

What's the streamclip (presumably MPEG Streamclip conversion software?) part of the process?

Copy the entire current edit timeline. Paste it into a new ProRes 422 edit timeline. Export about 10 seconds of it and see how it looks: it should be okay.

I presume you're good with knowledge of how to work with progressive/interlaced footage.
