How do I render best quality in 1920x1080 / having problems.

Dec 17, 2011 10:37 AM

Im at the end of a film.

 

Shot on Canon HV20 1940x1080.

 

Im trying to render a clip at full 1940x1080 BEST QUALITY, when I press match sequance it makes the settings 1440x1080 mpeg preview.

There is no custom setting under AVI.

 

Ive tried also H.264 HDTV 1080p 1920x1080 and it comes out the same as 1440x1080. Theres a lot of noise on the picture.

Is there a big difference between 1920 and 1440?

 

Im sure I set up the project HDV 1080.

 

 

Advice/ Help please!!

    1920 is full resolution HD.  Some types of HD don't use the full resolution, they use 1440 and 'stretch' the image out to fill the 1920 frame.

     

    So what is the purpose of your export?  That will determine how to proceed.

    one for a back up, and one for a preimire on a big screen

     

    Backup is easy.  You want some type of lossless file.  On the PC side of things, there are three options that work well.  Choose Microsoft AVI, and set the codec to None.  You can also separately install a couple of free codecs - Lagarith and UT - which will create smaller compressed files, but using lossless compression (which means you don't lose any quality).

     

    For big screen delivery, export will depend on how the theater shows it's movies.  You'll need to find out what the theater needs, format wise, in order to export a compliant file.

    Render out in Highest quality possible...

    Perhaps ProRes 422HQ or 4444 if you are going to CC in RGB in After Effects.

    Quicktime's Animation... is also a good choice...

     

    I personally render out the Master as a DPX/Cineon or Tiff. Then I'll CC and Master that one.

     

     

    After rendering out, THIS is your MASTER file. And you use that to make copies of. Be that H.264 or whatever.

     

     

    PS --- I hope your file is 1920x1080 and NOT 1940x1080

     

    Check that out !

    .

    Does padding the data to 444 give you any post advantage apart from a massive file size full of "0s"?
