  • Correct workflow for Australian Television

    Hi All, I've recently inherited a technical support role for quite a few editors. Most are using MC6. Some are using MC8. We have been having a tough time with formats. A lot of material gets rejected at QC because of field dominance problems, interlacing artefacts, strobing, ghosting etc. I would...

  • How can you tell your field order of your timeline?

    This might be a silly question... Let me give some quick context before I ask the question. In Premiere, when you create a new sequence, you can choose what preset you want the sequence to be. And then if you drop a clip on the sequence that doesnt match the sequence settings, Premiere will ask you if...

  • Field order problems downconverting HD to SD

    Hi, Simple problem but can't find a fix for it. We record a lot of live shows - for this we use a Sony PMW320 (records in EX format). We produce both DVDs and Blurays for customers. The problem is, when we record in HD (1080 50i), edit in an Avid 1080i project, export a quicktime ref (Full res) and...

  • TGA-still problem in 1080i

    Have som graphics for a promotrailer which starts with a quicktime animation, then a TGA-still and ends with a quicktime animation (all with alpha). The animations looks perfekt, but the TGA-still looks blurry. Almost as if it's only showing one field, but how is this possible, when I import a still...

  • Best workflow for converting to broadcast

    We are a network owned and operated TV station group using Symphony Nitris / Media Composer NLEs to create promotional content for HD broadcast at eventual 720p60 (59.94). I come to you from the mindset of a broadcast Engineer rather than as a video Editor, but I have at times worn that hat as well....

  • HD quicktime ref compressed to SD for DVD - what field order?

    I'm having some issues exporting a project and compressing to DVD, and it looks like it has something to do with field order. I have a 1080i program, exported as a quicktime ref, then compressed to MPEG2 in Squeeze 7 for DVD. From what I understand HD is upper field, SD is lower field. So should...

  • field order problem while importing mov-file

    Hello, We´ ve got the following problem: after importing a mov-file the field order looks always wrong. You can see no differences between import upper field first or lower field first. Both looks like the well known wrong-field order-interlaced-story. We are using MCA 2.8.1 Mojo SDI. The avid...

  • Targa Sequence export

    Hi, I am having a problem exporting a targa sequence using Avid MC v3.5.4. No matter what field order I export a sequence I am getting a slight ghosting around the sequence when I re-import it back into Avid. I have tried every different way of exporting and re importing ( e.g exporting/ importing odd...

  • Avid > Compressor > DVD Studio Pro = STROBING on DVD

    Okay people, I'm at my wits end here. I am two weeks overdue in delivering this project, working 15 hour days and literally crying because there doesn't seem to be a solution in site. First, here are my specs: MacBook Pro - Mac OS X - 2.5 GHz Intel Core Duo - 4GB Ram - Avid Media Composer 3.1...

  • Re: From MC to AvidDVD - A look at the settings!

    Great work again! Thanks Douglas. You confirmed my thoughts on the SD side and saved me sometime on the HD BD side of things. Do you have any suggestions on how to handle the field order difference when going from HDV (odd/upper) to an SD DVD (even/lower dominant) ? I get harsh lines on pans in the video...
