OK....had a go but don't know enough about Final Cut.
The settings that are different in FTP are these:
Frame size: 720x480 NTSC/DV (3:2)
Pixel Aspect Ratio: NTSC - CCIR 601 DV (720X480)
Field Dominance: Lower even
Compressor: DV/DVC PRO NTSC
Frame size: 768x576 CCIR 601 PAL Sq. (4:3)
Pixel Aspect Ratio: Square
Field Dominance: None
A bit more information. The main clip itself is pretty big (1hour) and all I wanted was about 50 seconds so I have edited this in FCP with the idea of exporting it and then including this within the video I am trying to create.
At the moment this edited clip is sitting in FCP waiting to be exported/compressed in preparation for insertion.
So in order to send it over (thanks for the offer) I would need to first export it.
Ideally I would like to compress this clip it in the desired format from the edited version I have just completed. It sounds complicated
It seems that its going to cost $100 in order to get the un-watermarked version. I understand where they are coming from, but for the 30 second clip I need, and bearing in mind I am unlikely to need this again I wonder if there is an alternative way.
Don't intend to sound mean about this.
Getting closer...thanks. Do you happen know if this also does NTSC to PAL. It seems from the blurb to be PAL to NTSC.
Brilliant. Will give it a go.
Success. A bit of a fiddle but it worked like a charm.
