Has anyone else experienced any problems when downscaling content from HD to SD prior to delivering to broadcaster.
Whenever I do it my luma levels get pushed out of broadcast safe, and my spot is rejected. The only workaround I have found is to use Resolve for any downscaling, which is not an ideal solution.
I on a Mac Pro 5,1, using Premiere Pro CC 2014 2014.1 release (8.1.0 (81) Build).
Workflow is as follows:
I always double check my results in ScopeBox as well as Premiere's internal meters. Everyting looks fine:
When the export is finished I check it again with ScopeBox, and now the file looks like this:
And it is rejected because of illegal broadcast values.
Is anyone else seeing the same thing?
Thanks to Mariusz Wawa for the following solution.
Disable "render maximum quality" and do not use Mercury Engine GPU Acceleration.
This seems to fix the problem.
