    Exporting to XDCam


      Hey guys,


      I'm working in CS5 v5.0.3 (on my Windows 7 Dell Vostro 1520) to edit a project that must be put on a new Omneon server. It must come out in a specific format with a specific codec which I'm having trouble finding.


      My requirements are as follows:


      -Frame Size: HD 1440x1080 (16:9)

      -Pixel Aspect Ratio: HD 1440x1080

      -Compressor: XDCAM HD 1080i60 (35Mbps)


      The file (as far as I have been told) has to be an MOV file. I am going to go try an MXF file when I get to the studio at 1pm today and will update if that works.


      My friend lent me her iMac for a few hours yesterday and I managed to export an AE Comp that I had with those settings, however I don't seem to understand why I cannot get these output settings. I got a trial version of MainConcept Codec Suite 5 Pro to see if that would solve anything (Adobe says it can handle XDCam exports here: http://www.adobe.com/products/plugins/premiere/), but I still couldn't get the option that I need. I tried checking out my own copy of AE, but I didn't have the export options there either. I thought I could export my project in Premiere, drag it into AE, and export it with the codec in AE...


      I confirmed on Wikipedia that v5.0.3 should have "Support for XD-CAM HD export" as of v5.0.2, but I can't seem to find any option for XDCam anywhere.


      Is anyone familiar with this format? Is there a converter out there that can convert to these settings and make it an MOV?


      UPDATE: I just found this preset: http://i.imgur.com/p9Ijg.jpg     but the problem is that it is still an MXF file... Is there any way to make it MOV?
