  • AVCHD to Canopus to FLV

    I'm missing several aspects, I think, of trying to convert 1920 x 1280 to a smaller Flash FLV.

    Firstly, it seems the Canopus HQ converter changes size to 1440 x 1080. Am I missing something to retain the original size? Not sure it's relevant.

    Everything I convert out of the Flash CS4 encoder comes out 4:3. Can't see what the deal is to get wide screen. Looks like I am choosing widescreen out options.

    I must say, working in HD has a bit of a learning curve. Numerous new issues to consider as opposed to good ol' DV.

    It'd be great if TGV had a bebst practices cookbook to address some of the common questions that reoccur. I do search the forum but there is an overwhelming amount of detail to get to the kernel.

    I'm trying to get a widescreen FLV that is bandwidth-friendly and of the best possbile quality, given that constraint.

      Duh, yah, my bad... the .MTS files are 1440 x 1080, so the Edius conversion does nothing to the size.
      That leaves the Flash encoder bit to suss out...

        in your flash encoder, choose 1:1 pixel aspect ratio and type 640x360 which will give you perfect 16:9, same size as youtube

        if you want smaller, try 480x270 or 320x180

        bitrate is up to you how, very good quality will be around 1800kbps and you can go as low as 500kbps

          Thanks, Anton. Your support in this forum is stellar and has been for years!

          This is a Flash Media Encoder issue, I reckon, and so is off topic. When I change the output size, I get letter boxing, I can use the crop tool to change aspect to 16:9 but that truncates the bottom of the source 1140 x 1080 video. I can elmininate the letter boxing by selecting the "scale to fit" option but I don't want to scale. Seems to me I should just be able to change the size and if it is 16:9 not have to crop anything.

          I get letter boxing with the presets as well. I am missing something here in the process...

          I can pull the FLV into Flash and it is 16:9 but it retains the black bars on the sides...

            I don't see anywhere to select 1:1 pixel for output, just preview.

              Interestingly, I converted the .MTS file to .FLV and it retained it's 16:9 aspect with no letter boxing. So I'm now wondering if it is the nature of the Canopus HQ .AVI that Flash encoder is troubled by. The Canopus codec is on the export machine.

              Maybe I am mssing an attribute in the canopus HQ converter utility?

                can you do a small test

                change your edius project setting from 1440x1080 to 1920x1080 prior to HQ export

                this will give you a correct 16:9 HQ file

                1440x1080 is actually 4:3 with rectangular shaped pixel to make it appear 16:9

                  Will do. Thanks.

                  An MPEG version also ratained 16:9.
                  My head hurts...

                  I think I have a potential misunderstanding of how the project size setting affects the source video, if at all.
