Please help... noobie curently failing....

Post by Arixana_Star » Sat Apr 21, 2012 8:10 pm

So I just finished my first AMV using FCP and now I'm trying to export it so I can submit it to the Anime Expo AMV contest.

And I have no idea how......

Accepted Video Codec(s)/Format: Mpeg2, Mpeg4, DV, or H.264.
Accepted Audio Codec(s): PCM (Uncompressed at 48khz preferred)
NTSC Standards; 480p, 480i, 720p, 720i, 1080p or 1080i resolutions at 29.97 frames per second (interlaced or progressive) progressive preferred*)) or 24 frames per second progressive. Videos submitted in 24fps will be converted to 29.97fps.

How do I do this in FCP???

Please help! :shock:

Sorry if this is posted in the wrong place. >.<

Aha, the coordinator for this event is an idiot, setting requirements like that. I find it hard to believe they seriously want people to resample audio CD to DVD just so their hardware mixer, which handles both, has less problems that it won't actually get in the first place. Asking for 29.970fps is also silly.

Either way, best thing you can do is render lossless in some format and then encode in a tool like Handbrake if you don't know what you're doing. Curious that there are no container rules though.
