The XDCAM/MXF stuff is a little foreign to me, but I'm thinking this might be what you're looking for(?):
Format: MXF OP1a
Video Codec: XDCAM HD 50 NTSC (4:2:2)
Field Order: Upper First
It's an XDCAM HD codec with 4:2:2 that automatically exports at 1920x1080, and with the Field Order at Upper First, it should be interlaced.
Oh, and I assumed NTSC, but you may have wanted the PAL version of the Video Codec.
That codec appears in the drop down list for both CS6 and CC. Which version are you running?
At first I thought this could be the solution, it seems logic and all that. But when I checked the .mxf in the Sony Content Browser it showed that the format is 25p instead of the requiered 50i format.
Never mind, you where right ofcourse the format is 25p when I don't select Upper First.
I'm have an issues with XDCam MPEG HD422 at 50Mbps because it's not on Pr CC and I can't find a MXF file format to output with Closed Captioning. Can anyone help me with how to output a .mxf file with Closed Captioning 608/708 on PC?
By now you may have an answer to your question. I do this often, but for NTSC as it has become a standard for delivery here in the United States.
Your caption file needs to be in a .MCC format, and it needs to be properly formatted for 608/708 captions. You know this is right, when you drag it into your timeline and you see two (2) caption tracks. If you only see one, you will not get the 708 caption file.
When exporting you need to set:
Format to MXF 0P1a
Preset to XDCAM HD 50 PAL 50i
Check the Captions tab.
Export Options: Embed in Output File
- Export your current timeline to an MXF file.
- Bring it into a new project, and add it to a new sequence.
- Drag your caption file above the video track and position it to your liking.
- Export the file again, using the same presets as above.
Bring this file back into Premiere. Double-click on it to see your 608/708 captions. You can also drag it into a new sequence which will also reveal your caption files.
To see caption data you need to make sure that they are turned on in your Program Monitor. You can do this through the wrench > Closed Caption Display > Enable
I personally like to click the "+" and in Button Editor drag the icon that looks like a Comment bubble. You can now just turn it on and off easily in the Program Monitor.
I hope this helps!
