    Default Exporting 5:4

    Hello,

    I'm having a problem with exporting some DV PAL footage I"ve been editing. In FCP, it looks great (as good as mini dv footage can look, i guess...) but when I send to Compressor, and try to export, the preview is showing really bad interlacing lines, and it just looks terrible!

    I've chosen MPEG-2 5.0 Mbps 2-pass for the video, and Dolby Digital Professional 2.0 for the audio. When I go into the settings for the video, i can only choose from 4:3 or 16:9 aspect ratios, and obviously I need 5:4.

    This is to burn onto DVD, so I need the best quality possible, does anyone have any advice they can give me for exporting formats etc?

    Thanks

    4:3 is the correct aspect ratio or if it's wide screen it's 16:9. I don't know where you get 5:4

    If you are getting bad interlace artefacts on the video, check you have set the correct field order, it should be lower field first for SD footage.

    I learned that it's best to export from FCP 6 (which I use, I'm learning FCP X) in uncompressed Quicktime format. That gives a large file, true, but that can be deleted later, if you want. Then use compressor to compress that Quicktime .mov file to produce an .AAC and a .m2v file, using the compressor default setting for best quality DVD. After that use DVD SP to author the DVD. That gives very good results, so good, that I still do not shoot my videoweddings in HD, but with a tape base SD camcorder. Succes! Jan de Bloois, Jullie trouwdag op DVD
