    Hi everybody,
    I’m doing exports for several broadcast stations. Some specify 720×480 and 4×3, but others just say 720×480. Am I correct in assuming they are looking for 4×3, with NTSC CCIR 601/DV pixels (the Compressor setting I use to down-convert my square pixel HD footage)?

    Thanks,
    Justin

    And, along the same lines: some stations ask for interlaced, but some don’t. I can’t seem to figure out if my original footage is interlaced or not. This is what get info in QT and Streamclip yield:
    “Apple ProRes 422 (HQ), 1920 × 1080, 23.976 fps, 173.73 Mbps”

    Should my Compressor settings include a “reinterlacing” or something like that?
