Changing resolutions to PAL
on Nov 18, 2013 at 11:50:27 pm

Hello CC,


I have video from youtube that has been downloaded at an odd dimension - 452 x 360. And needing to convert them all for Broadcast - 720 by 576i (D1/DV PAL Widescreen 1.46) interlaced. Can it be done? I'm not expecting miracles, but results that are not terrible. Let me know if I should go with a better PAL preset.

Thanks.

Hmmmm.... 16x9 would be 640 x 360. You have 452 x 360.... and you need it in a 16x9 SD comp. I think I'd put it in the comp, scale the layer to fit horizontally, and position it vertically until it looks best.

And with that much scaling up, "best" can be a pretty vague term. I hope the frame rates match up at least.

Thanks Dave.

The good thing is, all frame rates are all at 25fps. By going into "interpret footage" and selecting "upper fields" will now become true interlaced?

It depends: some PAL stuff is upper-field first, and some of it's lower-field-first. Personally, I wouldn't even mess with it. It oought to be fine.
