Hi... I have a question about the screen resolutions at allow for importing into Chromanator and Alam. Do they handle Native 16:9 720 x 576 DV format? as well as 25i, and 29.976i ? (Pal and NTSC).

Thanks.

Oh, are the export resolutions (either to AVI or Uncompressed) kept as the import resolutions. (example) If I were to import a 16:9 Pal 720 x 576 25i, then do what I need to do in Chromanator and ot AlamDV2, then when I render and export will it be the same quality? ( broadcast 16:9 720 x 576) just like when I imported?

Thanks you.

uncompressed means what it says, keeping the originial size and sharpnes/quality at the same level. the only problem with uncompressed is that chromanator ain't able to read it afterwards.
it's a solution to this problem , let me just get the thread.

Chromanator's project setup system can handle just about anything you throw at it. AlamDV2 is older so is not quite so supportive, but the forthcoming AlamDV3 will have a similar system to Chromanator's, so will do the job fine.
