XDCAM HD downconversion
by Sheeplove on Aug 23, 2007 at 3:32:34 pm
Have installed Sony's XDCAM transfer software & XDCAM codecs - all working well. But when I conform the HD clips in Media 100 to SD (tried all codecs,& scaling options) the result is very poor. Image looks un-aliased & is soft?
Anyone have good or bad experiences with HD downconversion in Media 100? Or am I the only unlucky one!

I am not really sure what you are seeing. Do you import HD clips which are fine, and downconvert them in Media 100 HD? Or do you try to import HD clips directly as SD files?
In our experiences the Media 100 up- and downconversion inside the application (both via hardware and via the conform commands) is great. I have to admit that we only tested with PAL footage, but I would expect NTSC to be good also.
