I've been told that I need to convert my :30 video to either ProRes HQ 1080i or DVC Pro HD 1080i for upload on a ftp site. They also said they prefered DVC Pro HD. Will the Adobe Encoder create these file types, I don't see them listed in my choices... am I missing something?
You'll find the DVCPRO HD presets under the P2 format.
Yes! Thanks! The term "P2 Movie" through me off!
You'll probably have to redo the export and upload if you use P2 Movie as the format; it doesn't create a self-contained file, but rather, a P2 folder structure.
Instead, select QuickTime as your format and you can use the DVCPRO HD codec of your choice there. That will create a self-contained MOV file, which I'm willing to put money on will be preferred to the above. The codec is the same as P2 Movie, just wrapped up differently.
