Best way to down convert for broadcast without going to tape
on Apr 24, 2010 at 2:50:57 pm

I know this topic has probably been beat to death but i need to address it again. I finally have my first commercial built in HD and now must deliver to local media in 720x480 SD format.

This will be delivered in QT file via FTP transfer and not off to tape. What is the best way to compress and keep my projects resolution?

Thanks for any advice.

We have 2 FCP workstations so we output down-converted HD using our Kona card from one via sdi and record it on the other. Or, export the HD program to a QT file (Using Current Settings) and use Compressor to down-convert. There are lots of discussions on the Cow about the workflow. Just search.
