If broadcast is lower, I can see why Adobe made the preset lower. It's weird that their system would want upper.
I tried the 480 export, and it did come out as 1 pass 18 Mb CBR.
Have you tried them in CS 5.5 yet?
They don't seem to be right as far as adding 32 lines to the top of the video and I see no way of moving the video lower.
It seems to apply a skinny letter box top and bottom which I don't believe will work for Sigma encoding.
Has Anyone tried these presets with DG?
Here are DG's current spec sheets:
Files to SpotCentral for Distribution File Specs - SD / HD
Thanks Joe I already have those. We are grandfathered in on 720 x 486 with DG on the DS systems and I am cleared on the HD side on the mac systems I was hoping to qualify on the SD side on the mac systems and was checking out the presets in AME / PP but they don't seem right.
I've never used the built-in CS5 presets... I've used my own since PPro2.
DG does require upper field first.
So are you 720 x 486 , 480 , or 512?
For SD, I have never submitted anything but 720x480.
Well yes you have been doing it a while. They would like "new" users to adhere to the 720 x 512 frame size which contains the extra 32 lines of VBI for closed captioning, watermarking and neilson sigma encoding.
we've been doing 720 x 486 for years some spots require closed captioning but to get my mac systems qualified I need to hit the 720 x 512 target. looks like episode may be the quickest path.
