Can anyone recommend specific settings for exporting AlamDV files for use on Final Cut Pro HD?
Here's my situation:
1) I do basic editing on Final Cut at the office and export the edited footage to my Mini-DV camera.
2) I download the edited footage to my PC at home to do AlamDV special effects work.
3) I want to be able to export QT files from AlamDV which I can burn on a CD-R to take back into Final Cut Pro at the office. I don't want to loose any quality from the footage that is exported as obviously I'll need to integrate the AlamDV sfx footage with the existing edited footage at the office.
I've tried doing this a few times using the Quicktime and DVCPro50 settings, however the quality is noticably diffrent and I get an occaisional bad deinterlacing look. My last submission "The Art of Voice Inflection" shows a few examples of this: http://fxhome.com/cinema/info_cache/movieinfo1523.html
Fellow users may suggest that I just export AlamDV movies from PC to my Mini-DV camera. Unfortunately at this time my firewire card has been damaged and can ONLY import footage from the camera.
Any suggestions would be highly appreciated. Direct responses this post are fine, however, I'm sure someone has already asked this type of question, so a referiring link will do fine.
My thanks as always
