I am working with a client who broadcasts footage in .dv format… Apparently this is what their playout system works with.
At the moment, due to file transfer time deadlines and size limits, I am sending my files as mpeg… avi takes ages to send thru FTP.
The files are 15-20 minute long and for actual TV broadcast…
However, they then need to convert it into their .dv format to be able to play it out…
1- I know I’m losing quality when I export as mpeg, but is there any further loss when they convert into .dv?
2- Does Premiere Pro CS3 support .dv? Is there any way that I can export the project as a .dv file within Premiere Pro to avoid any further quality loss?
3- Also, any other suggestions to export the footage with a better qualkity is more than welcome.
Here are the export settings I use for Adobe Media Encoder:
TV STANDARD: PAL
FRAME SIZE: 720×576
FRAME RATE: 25
FIELD ORDER: NON PROGRESSIVE
PIXEL ASPECT RATIO: 16:9 (1.422)
BITRATE ENCODING: CBR 8Mbps
GOP SETTINGS: M FRAMES 3 – N FRAMES 12
Thanks for all the thoughts…
Instead of going to Export>Media Encoder, go to Export>Movie, select DV AVI and check the properties from there.
I am not sure that broadcast .DV format and DV-AVI are the same thing.
.DV in some cases refers to a variation of the Apple .MOV format, really need to get some specs from the client.
