I am looking for validated and efficient ways to take
media cut on FCP 5 and compress it on a PC. I prefer
to encode using a PC as Compressor, although easy to
navigate, runs like a sick dog on my PowerBook G4.
Currently, I am exporting my sequence from FCP using
QT Export w/the following settings:
Frame Size 720×480 NTSC DV (3:2)
Pixel Aspect Ratio NTSC-CCIR 601 / DV (720×480)
Field Dominance: Lower
QT Video Settings/Compressor: DV/DVCPRO – NTSC
Audio 48k; 16bit; stereo mix
File size and playback on Mac seem good at this point.
I am then encoding using Autodesk Cleaner to make
.mov, .wmv, and elementary files. This is where the
breakdown occurs with these files. Autodesk Cleaner
has no trouble doing the same encodes to files that
originate on a PC when using AvidXpress.
So the question is this…am I dealing with some sort
of Mac/PC incompatibility? Or is it something else.
Anyone have a solution or thoughts.
Thanks in advance.

What ‘breakdown’ are you experiencing with cleaner?

I wonder if some codec of filter is installed on your system that is incorrectly taking over the decoding of your movie?
