  • Transcode XAVC in Browse before Edius

    Two questions; I have XAVC footage UHD 25p and need to deliver 1080 50i. I have transcoded in Catalyst Browse to 50i long gop, is this the best way to go? (European Broadcast) I have little knowledge of Browse.
    Secondly I only perform a primary colour correction so would it be better to do so in Browse while still in UHD or in Edius once transcoded. Thank you.

    You're best off doing your edit in progressive, as this is the format of your footage. Make a progressive master output, for instance HQ/X. Then create an interlaced project, import the progressive HQ/X master into it, then export to whatever delivery codec as interlaced. You may find that there's a better solution for turning your progressive master to interlaced. There's also the potentially slight concern with motion titles/graphics. It may also be worth bearing in mind that it's still very common in the TV industry to use PsF.

    If you don't know the difference between Azimuth and Asimov, then either your tapes sound bad and your Robot is very dangerous. Kill all humans...... Or your tape deck won't harm a human, and your Robot's tracking and stereo imagining is spot on.

    Is your Robot three laws safe?

      Thank you. It makes more sense and fortunately I will use zero effects or titles apart from a tweak on the contrast curves etc for this project.
