Have been working with DVCPRO HD 1080i50 timeline cutting videos taken from the Firestore. No problem whatsoever.
After finishing the edit, I want to archive the final programs as a DVCPRO HD 1080i file for backup.
So I mark in and mark out in the timeline and export QUICKTIME movie (no recompression whatsoever). When I bring in the movie after exporting back into FCP, and placed it in the same timeline of the original movie. End up i needed to RENDER the movie!
This was not happening until the recent upgrade to Quicktime 7.1.5.
Somehow, I checked the settings of the movie from FCP, the movie is exported as Aspect Ratio: Square Pixel but older movie exported is Aspect Ratio: DVCPRO HD (1440×1080).
Even the video size is different: the new video size is 1920×1080 while the usual video size from old exported movie is: 1440×1080.
Anyone can try this on their computer and share the experience?
