  • 1080p downconversion

    i'm trying to get a finished spot ready for delivery for SD broadcast

    any opinions on the best way to go about downconverting the finished 1080p spot? delivery format is to be 16:9 anamorphic DVCAM signal (4:3 letterboxed is an option as well, whichever i can make look better)

    using just edius for conversion isn't quite looking as good as i'd hoped.

        since you are using progressive footage, you may need to leave interlaced unticked in VD as seen in my step 2
