Sequence Settings
on Sep 13, 2009 at 5:25:29 am

I just took a look at all my footage and I have:

4 different frame sizes: 720x480, 640x360, 720x486 and 720x540

4 different compressors: DV/DVCPRO-NTSC, Motion JPEG A, Photo - JPEG, Uncompressed 8-bit 4:2:2

How would you set up your sequence settings?
-Frame Size?
-Pixel Aspect Ratio?
-Field Dominance?
QT Video Settings?

The final product needs to be delivered for air on the web at 640x360.

Thanks for all your help!

I would drop everything in a 640x360 Square pixels/ Progressive sequence.
Proress, and the time base depending of the stuff.

I'm def. a novice FCP user ... what do you mean by Progressive sequence? How do I make it progressive and what is it exactly.

I also didn't understand this part of your answer either ...
Proress, and the time base depending of the stuff.

I'm sorry I don't get it. Thanks so much for your help!

Hi Colleen,
If you are making a video for a web it must be progressive. So no Upper, no Lower, but NONE as field order. You need to de-interlace the footage you put on it.
Proress is the codec that I suggest, and about the time-base, if all your footage have the same time base, no problem. If there are different time-bases you need to convert all the footage to a common one.
