HV20 24p in Final Cut Pro 6.03

I know there is info. on this all over the place, but I am still baffled by Compressor and Apple's "lack of info. I have followed this document to a "T" (http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=306389) and every time it spits out a 4x3 image. Now I have tried 2 different settings including "custom 16x9" and changing the pixel size and not changing anything!! No matter what 4x3. So my question is why am I reading that folks are having great success with this tutorial and I'm the kid crying in the corner cause I got picked last to play in the game...

What am I overlooking?!?

Dave

Hey Dave,

I was right there with you, no matter what I could not get compressor to remove the pulldown correctly. I finally said "to hell with it" and downloaded JES DeInterlacer and voila! No problems since.

Guys,

You can add me to the JES list. I do have a workflow question, however (I'm using FCP 6.0.3). I have already captured the footage and now need to batch convert from the browser, first using JES and then converting to ProRes. Could you walk me through the batch convert steps? (I have about 100 clips, neatly divided into subfolders and would like to keep things as orderly as possible. Also:

1. Is there a way to re-name the clips or make some change to the name during the batch process so that I can easily identify them?

2. Anything special I need to do to the JES settings beforehand?

Thanks,

Bill Doyle

I got a 4x3 image as well after the 24p footage ran through compressor. BUT, I import the 4x3 footage anyways and it was fine. FCP recognizes it as 16:9 24p footage. Did my editing, export it and everything looked fine.

I think I may have the solution to some of your problems.

Technically, anything recorded to the Canon HV*0 is recorded at 1440x1080, with a pixel aspect ratio of 1.333.

If your playback software ignores the aspect ratio for some reason, it will interpret it as a "square pixel" image, which happens to be 4:3.

You have not lost any picture quality information if this happens, it's just a misinterpretation of the aspect ratio. You can always set the aspect ratio to 1.333 manually.

Taking it into FCP should recognize that 1.333 aspect ratio, of course, and I always try to export as "square pixels."
