Making Web Compressed Video Good Enough for TV?
on Oct 10, 2013 at 8:55:15 pm

I produced a web video for a client that wants to air it on TV. Time-Warner sent the spec sheet as follows...

Frame rate SD - 29.97 HD(interlaced) – 29.97 HD(progressive) – 59.94
(Note: You must make sure to manually set your frame rate correctly during your export or the spot will not pass)

I only have the compressed :30 spot I made for the web which is 32MB, 24fps and only 1.0 MB/sec. I have to change the frame rate, make it DF instead of NDF and any other suggestions to hopefully make it pass for TV. Can I change these parameters? Thanks!

You don't have the camera masters to rebuild the cut? I HIGHLY doubt that converting what you have will be acceptable for air.

Well Shane they are on a 2tb G-RAID that is corrupted. I got a quote for $800 (minimum) from a place in Northern California to save the files. Unfortunately they need this today. The video looks a little strobed as is.

Well...send it and see. But compressed as much as it is, I can't see it passing muster.

the camera masters are on that drive? or the project and media? Oy...this is rough. I always archive my camera masters to TWO hard drives...I use bare SATA drives and a drive dock (cheap)...and then archive my final show outputs, and often the project with media managed media. Because I've had stuff like what happened to you, happen to me.

Never again.

Yes the camera masters are on the drive, the project file is on my computer's internal drive. I sent it, after running it through compressor to conforms to (most) of their specs. Have you ever had to retrieve files from a corrupt drive? Any recommendations? For sure I will back up next time, thanks....

Checkout Gillware. I believe they charge nothing if they can't recover the data.
