    Export as Quicktime Movie Question

    markharrigan

      I am trying to export from Premiere Pro CS4 a Quicktime Movie; the Media Encoder is only giving me the option of 720 X 480, my original source footage is 1440 X 1080...any thoughts?

          Use a codec other than DV.

            There isn't an HDV codec, though some of t

            hem will allow you to resize the video

              Precisely. What codec--and moreover, what format--you use depends on your destination requirements. Codec options like "Animation" or "None" allow you to set most parameters for an export, but the file is only useable in certain contexts, whereas DV is DV the world over (NTSC vs. PAL differences notwithstanding) but is limited to strict parameters. Fill in the blanks about where your file is going, and someone will be able to help you pick the proper codec.

                You will likely want one of the H.264 CODEC/formats. However, with out knowing how you need to deliver, it's but a guess on our part. That is what Colin is asking. Your intended delivery will set the stage, and then people can help with the fine-tuning of the Export.

                 

                Good luck,

                  Another question please:  As I will be outputting to a particulat format, it doesn't matter what project settings I begin with, correct?  (I am starting with HDV 1080i30, the tape house says i should output to DVCPRO HD, but all I get are a series of files on output.)  I will be outputting to an individual who will

                  be converting to Sony Digibeta tape for the following submission criteria to the A & E Network

                  , my original footage is Sony HDV:

                    Technically-speaking, no, but practically-speaking, yes. And you don't want to use the DVCPROHD option from Premiere, if you're planning on going to DigiBeta--PPro's DVCPROHD option is for exporting to a Panasonic P2 card (hence, the "series of files" you're seeing), and it will add an unnecessary round of compression to your output. Though it will be a very large file, use the QT None export, and set your parameters to exactly match your source footage. I'm assuming that the person you're taking the file to is probably using FCP with some sort of Blackmagic Designs or AJA card, correct? If so, they'll be able to ingest the file and conform it for the DigiBeta dump (DigiBeta is SD, so you'll have to do some sort of scaling, but the hardware will do a much better job of that then Premiere Pro's software scaler will). If you know what kind of hardware is being used (e.g. who is the manufacturer), you might be able to export to the specific codec used by that card; both Blackmagic and AJA make available their codecs for encoding on platforms that don't contain their hardware.

                      I have forwarded your comment to the guy at the tape house for his input as to correct CODEC for his hardware.  I am very grateful for your help.  This is my first submission to TV/Video on Demand...and it is very complicated and frustrating.  Thank you again, Colin, for your help.
