  • Exporting mpeg2 in .mxf wrapper

    Hi there,

    I’m having a situation that don’t seem to be able to solve.

    Need toExport mpg2 1440×1080 in an .mxf wrapper, interlaced.

    My master is a prores 1920×1080 and have not been able to find the correct setting.

    Either I cant change the dimension, or the codec is different, but cant seem to find the complete combination.

    Can anybody throw me a life saver?

    Hey nicolas,

    Note:that the ProRes 1920×1080 master will be automatically scaled down to 1440×1080 to match the export resolution.

    Follow these

    • In the Deliver page, select the “Custom” preset.
    • Set the “Format” to “MXF OP1a”.
    • Set the “Video Codec” to “MPEG2”.
    • Set the “Resolution” to “1440×1080”.
    • Set the “Field Order” to “Upper Field First” or “Lower Field First”, depending on your source footage.
    • Adjust other settings as needed (e.g. bit rate, frame rate, etc.).
    • Export the video using the desired file name and location.
