I have been scouring the web for this but unfortunately did not seem to get a good understanding so I have to resort to posting my question and will be extremely thankful if you could help out.
Basically, I have to deliver a video for broadcast. Here are their format requirements:
output format: Quicktime.mov IMX50 anamoprhic, Pal, Video encode: D-10/ IMX, Audio Encode: PCM
frame: rate: 25
frame rate mode: Progressive
resize: Active Picture: w- 720 h- 576, Frame Size: w- 720 h-608
Encode profile 50mbps Mpeg2 4:2:2@ML
Audio Profile GOP Structure I-Picture Only
This is my first time of delivering for broadcast and im panicking.
My composition settings are: HDTV 1920x1080, 25fps, Square Pixels.
When I set my composition settings to DV Pal Widescreen my image gets squashed to 4:3…
Could you please have a look at the attached pictures whether my composition settings are correct (picure 1).
The composition that I get is 4:3, should I render it as it is (picture 2) or scale it so it is widescreen (picture 3).
I do not fully understand what anamorphic is so could you please advise which one of these will be correct according to the resolution delivery requirements mentioned earlier. Which one of these is the correct 720x576 anamorphic and will be good for delivery?
