Converting FCP project for DCP creation
on Jan 9, 2015 at 3:11:00 pm

My producer is trying to prep a 4x3 HD film created in FCP7
into the necessary specs for dcp transfer and festival screening. The festival will make the dcp but is asking for specific paramaters.
Here are the native specs of the project:
> 633x480 custom
> square
> no field
> 29.97
> apple pro res 422LT
> 48khz/16bit stereo

The festival wants:
Apple pr res 422 or 422HQ (which is easy enough)
1998x1080 (which doesn't appear in Compressor as possibility
24 fps or 30fps (which should we do? 30 i guess?)
6 or 8 channel 24bit 48KHz (can i just change to 24 bit?)

The numbers and specs requested do not match anything on FCP7 compressor and even as custom we are not able to match or make these numbers appear.
Any suggestions? We must be missing something.
