    Help!!! 720p to 1080i conversions

    I have written this on the mac side but wanted to make sure I got as much info as I can - 

    The Project shot with varicam at 720p 60, 97% of the footage was shot 720p execpt for some in-car camera shots that were shot 1080i.  The show was cut 720p 60 with Media Composer and now is going to Symphony room to be uprez'd to for 1080p delivery...  I instinctively exported a QT ref from the 720 sequence and reimported it into a new 1080 project - I dont notice any issues, no choppyness, nor interlacing from the 1080i shots, normal playback, but am being told that this just wont work from the post house... ?  

    So here is the result - There team has decided to redigitize all the footage back thru a teranex at high cost first and then lay off causing many extra hours of work  and a LOT of money- am I crazy in just doing thru the symphony spiting it out to tape thru avid? 

    Any help would be greatly appreciated -  So the question..  Are there any issues with doing this conversion thru the avid as compared to the hours of conversion thru the teranex?  Thanks

    DVC Pro HD decks like the 1200 and 1400 have built in cross converters for 720p to 1080i and vice-versa.

    That would have been my choice. The quality is as good as Teranex conversion. I think an Alchemist conversion is the only one better.

    MC 4.0 has a cross convert tool under Video Output. So cross convert and do a 1080 digital cut.

    Dan, where is that tool? Under "Output" (which I think you are talking about) I only find "Export to device...", digital cut is grayed out (720p50 project), and no cross convert tool.

    I want to play out to Digi Beta from 720p50 project.

    Re: Help!!! 720p to 1080i conversions

    The tool is under the settings window of the main bin | video output - There is a cross convert pulldown that you can adjust and choose formats. 

    Thank you for all the input guys much needed and appreciated!

     

    Cheers-

    ...if you are using Adrenaline, Nitris DX or Mojo DX, which I do not. Any other suggestions to output 720p to SD, besides Quicktime?
