  • quick time Export problem

    I have a client that wants me to upload a video to his site and he then imports it into his Avid NLE for further edit. The original footage is HDV 16x9 1440X1080i. I have been using the following settings in the new exporter in Edius 5.12

    Quicktime Exporter plugin
    Enable conversion
    Advanced
    Change video format 640x480
    Letter box side panel (default)
    Crop conversion not checked
    Frame rate current setting
    Field order auto
    Default time code drop frame

    When I play it on my computer in QT player it looks 16x9. However, when he imports it into his avid it is squished.

    Any ideas???

    Thanks

    Ronnie

    Daft question Ronnie, but why export to a non editing size?

      He asked for 640x480 I think it should be 640x360 for 16x9. What he is doing is posting the file on his website after re editing and importing it into his Avid NLE.

      The file plays correctly in the QT player..... but gets squished when he imports it. I may have to change the file to a 4x3 with the layout tool in Edius then send it to him. Not really sure how the Avid works.

      Thanks so much for your reply.

        Surely he would be better to work from a 720 or 1440 file and then downscale.

        I dont do enough quicktime to comment on the 16x9 square pixel size but certainly for Flash or wmv I always use square pixel sizes.

          Surely he would be better to work from a 720 or 1440 file and then downscale and you would know you had set a 16x9 flag when saving.

            I checked with a local editor that edits for Comcast commercials and they use an Avid. They have the same problem when importing QT 16x9 files and run Sorenson squeeze before importing. The results that I get with the new exporter in 5.12 seem to be cleaner than before .... probably just wishful thinking. All in all I am really pleased with 5.12. My only complaint is lack of knowledge on my part with the new exporter. It would be nice if Mike or Pat came up with a training DVD on just the exporter alone to complement Mike's exceptional training DVD on 4.X.

            Because of the fact that I am computer and edit challenged, I really appreciate that the interface for Edius has stayed basically the same.

            Thanks
