If it’s SD you should just be able to export a standard quicktime .movfile using basic DV/NTSC compression.
You seem concerned about final playback? Do you know how the client plans on using this countdown?
If you absolutely need a specific format later….it is much much much faster to convert a final .mov file than it is to keep rendering out a project.
Also, a .mov DV/NTSC file willencode more quickly from the timline than mp4…..if you need an mp4, convert the .mov to mp4 later.
