You can not actually get the extra "2" by converting the "O"
The missing data can not be made up from now where. (It would just be data padding)
I dont think you should worry about it and just present the file as is.
Then what's all this Cineform hype/talk?
And all the other adjustments can be made in Premiere... ?

29.97 frames per second
8bit uncompressed video 4:2:2"
Quicktime H.264 means compression.
8 bit uncompressed video 4:2:2 means no compression.
You can't have both in the same file.
They gave you incorrect specs.
I do a ton of this stuff.
Just get their exact specs and and take your final video into AME
and match their specs and you will be fine.
It really doesn't matter what your original footage is as long as your video levels,
audio levels, focus, etc. are O.K.
The station opens up the file and sees what the codec is.
If it's what they want you are good to go.
Ha! That's odd they would give me both formats... they are experienced with this type of stuff.
Thanks for the advice, that fact you've done this is a confidence builder for me... i have just heard various
things said about the quality of DSLR footage and broadcast... so I want to make sure my ducks are in a row
before I begin shooting. Thanks again... oh! is there a good blog where I can research this further?
"is there a good blog where I can research this further?"
I don't know of any blogs.
If this is for a local station I really wouldn't worry at all.
It seems they will air just about anything to make money.
Here in Las Vegas, I see tons of crap video on the local stations.
If for some remote reason it gets rejected, they will tell you what the problem is and
give you a 2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc. chance to get it correct.
They really want to air it to make money.
In the "old days" of analog over the air broadcast they were very picky - but not now.
Well, it's not NY or LA... but it is one of the big dogs in Seattle.
I totally feel you about stations wanting to make money when they can... I work in news and I know about the
suffering bottom line as of late. That's a good point you make about changing formats to suit their needs.
So.. basically, just shoot it right and keep submitting versions until they take one... love it, thank you so much.
