My failed process:

1. Edit 24pN footage in FCP 5.0.4 within an HD timeline.

2. Export edited sequence using Compressor...

3. HD MPEG-2 (720p) (have tried setting the frame rate to 23.98 and 59.94)

The exported .m2v file does not play properly in Quicktime (latest version) at 23.98 or 59.94. The frame rate seems to be like 12 fps. It's fast and jittery and ignores fades.

The .m2v file is not supported in DVD Studio Pro 4.

Anyone else having issues with this?

Thanks,

Andy

Hi,

So, I figured out I needed to download some updates on Apple's site for DVDSP and Compressor. I also figured out that setting the frame rate to 23.98 is imperative.

I then went through the same process posted above. The .m2v file now imports flawlessly into DVDSP 4.0.3 and I can burn an HD-DVD on a DVD-5. Of course, this won't play on Toshiba's $500 HD DVD player. It will only play on a G5 with Mac OS Tiger with software updates. Apple Pro Support reps said it may play on a PC with an intel processor, but I haven't researched that at all.

Also, regarding QuickTime, the .m2v file still will not play properly in Quicktime. The footage still looks undercranked. The Apple Pro Support reps I've spoken with are not sure why this is.

I'll have to wait until christmas probably to be able to purchase a proper HD-DVD burner and proper HD-DVD.

Thanks,

Andy
