FCP7 to compressor for blu-ray authoring with adobe encore

Hey.

I used the following workflow from compressor to export my video into encore cs5 for blu-ray authoring.

http://www.adobe.com/solutions/profe...e_with_fcp.pdf

When i import my video into encore. its telling me that its untranscoded under blu-ray transcode status.
Anyone had any luck with FCP to encore for blu-ray without spending a whole lot of time re-transcoding in encore. I know i should have tested a small clip before i transcoded 2 hours of footage.

thanks in advance for your support guys!!!

Re: FCP7 to compressor for blu-ray authoring with adobe encore

i think this might be the problem why encore needs to re-transcode. I was on 30p and it doesn't support. I will try 24P and let you all know.

thanks

Frame Size/Display Aspect Ratio/Frame Rate/Scanning Method

720 480 4x3 29.97 Interlaced

Re: FCP7 to compressor for blu-ray authoring with adobe encore

Hi!

Personnaly, I ask a render in native format to FCP. Then I compress the .mov file in "H264 for Blu-ray" format with Adobe Media Encoder, then I import the .m4v and the .wave files in Encore which doesn't need to transcode them.
Indeed, I believe Encore is more confortable with files coming from Media Encoder than from Compressor.

Re: FCP7 to compressor for blu-ray authoring with adobe encore

are you telling me encore doesn't support 1920 X 1080p? I'll have to go and do a web search as I was hoping to do similar and go from FCP through compressor to encore. But my projects XDCAM EX 1080p.

Ronan,

yea i tried that with a short clip and you are right. Encore likes Adobe Media Encoder file but it was too late for me. I let encore do its job and it re-transcoded everything again. It didn't take too long. Any quality lost when you go from FCP to Adobe Media Encoder?

Damian,

If you are shooting 1080 24P i don't think you will have any problem.
