It has been a few years since I downloaded and tested
the free trial version of FlipFactory, but it was fully functional
without watermarking during the trial period... it may still be.
That might be your quickest path to glory.
If the trial is fully functional, export to an uncompressed,
lossless intermediate file from Premiere, then flip it to their specs.
timeline is 29.97 1080p
On a side note, to the best of my knowledge all 1080 broadcasts at 30 fps are interlaced, not progressive.
Thanks Joe and Jim. I thought it would be my path to success as well but I can't seem to get the trial version working. After installing all the side stuff, it places the shortcut to install the console on my desktop just as the instructions say. When I double-click on it though, IE will not connect to http://localhost:9000. I assume for some reason it's not connecting to the SQL server that it installed but I'm not sure how to force it. Do you have any tips or pointers on getting this part of the installation process to work? I'd contact support but they're gone until Tuesday morning. Thanks again for your help.
