Digibeta Transfer newbie question (CS4 encoding issue)

I need to export some footage (17mins) and transfer it to digibeta, the footage is shot on Panasonic HVX200 HDV 720p (24p) and edited on Premiere CS4 with the HDV 720p 24p setting.
I got to ask someone from a local transfer service and they said the output file should be in quicktime format, preferably 720x486 uncompressed yuv 10bit 4:2:2 codec. but then he said it needs to be in 29.97fps, even if my footage was shot on 720p (24p) 23.976fps.
So my questions would be:
1. should i really encode the footage with the 29.97fps setting? will it change how the footage looks, especially if it is supposed to have a 24p film look?
2. Also they need 720x486 but the original is 720x480, does it change the aspect ratio a bit too?
3. I heard there is a file size limit of rought 4~5gig for quicktime format encoding on PC. Since my footage is about 17mins long, I expect the uncompressed file will be very big (i did a test to encode a 10sec clip and the resulted file is about 300mb), so will I have problem encoding file of such size?
Thanks a lot!

In CS4...
File > Save As
Choose Illustrator Format (.ai)
Click OK
Choose Adobe Illustrator CS3 from the drop down menu at the top of the second dialog window
Click OK
Open file in CS3
This should retain most everything, but as Myllennium pointed out, if you use a CS4-Only feature some changes may occur to  maintain appearances in CS3. For example, multiple-artboards in CS4 will be converted to a single artboard with guides for the other artboards.

  • Premiere and Media Encoder CC encoding issue

    Hi all,
    I am having an encoding issue with PP and ME CC. My video assets are fine, and on the timeline they appear how they should, but when I look at the rendered h264 video there are encoding errors in the video. I have attached two images, the black is how it should look and the white is the error. The video plays fine and then it flickers between the images shown. 
    It has done this on a few different videos I have rendered over the last few days and I don't know why. It also happens to a different machine on CC as well. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Hi James,
    I've never seen this before. Can you give us more info? Answer all the questions on this FAQ: What information should I provide when asking a question on this forum?

  • Encoding Issue : JMS and Mapping : utf-8 iso8859-1

    Hi All,
    I am facing some problem with encoding issue.
    Scenario :  JMS -->  SAP PI --> JMS
    Requirment : Input plain text file contain some special characters,"©®" . Based on this condition,In Java Mapping
                       we check the Payload and changed the 'encoding' tag to UTF-8 or   ISO8859-1.                                                     
                   : <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>     in the target XML output.
    While testing in Operation mapping our Java mapping works fine. as the encodeing tag changes from
                 UTF-8 to ISO8859-1 if the special character exists.But if I test the same in Integration Directory(Test Configuration)
                 or did a end to end  testing. The encoding tag did'nt changes.
    For testing we had to a set of Plain Text files with UTF-8 and ISO8859-1 .
    I tried the options of using beans in Adapter modules in Sender JMS channel.

  • Embedding HTML in XML CDATA and encoding issues

    Hi all,
    I'm embedding HTML code in a CDATA section. My problem is that, depending on the document, the HTML can be encoded in many formats. I borrowed a piece of code that sniffs that format so i can create String in the "right" encoding (or at least the one that was guessed).
    - If I directly injected those in the CDATA section, i guess they'd be encoded in UTF-8 and some character would be misinterpreted?
    - What if i would transcode the HTML from the sniffed format to utf-8?
    -Are there any issues woth doing this?
    Sorry if this is a dumb question but I'm quite new to that kind of encoding issues.
    BTW i'm using DOM.

    I don't know if it's a dumb question. I just don't understand it at all. Encoding issues only arise when you write data from a Java program to an external location, or when you read data from an external location into a Java program. And none of the activities you mentioned there have anything to do with that.
    When you write your XML to an external file, or wherever you write it to, it gets encoded at that moment. The whole thing. Elements, attributes, CDATA sections, the whole thing. Doesn't matter what's in it, the whole thing gets encoded in whatever charset was chosen.
    Does that help?

  • [SOLVED] File name encoding issue

    Hi all,
    I have a large series of files with accented characters, they were all displayed nicely, but at some point, when I copied them to another computer, the characters were replaced by codes, for instance: "ó" --> "ó".
    +Renaming ie. "Pasó" (bad encoding of "Pasó") --> Pasó, while writing it, it shows the correct character, but when pressing enter the name remains ("Pasó")
    +If I rename the file to something else and then to the correct name, it will accept it: Pasó --> Pas --> Pasó will display correctly.
    I don't know if it's a system wide encoding issue because new files are displayed correctly, but I would like to know if I have to change file names manually to make them right.
    PS. When copying bad encoded files to another FS (like a USB drive), nautilus and bash refuse to copy them.

  • Adobe Media Encoder (Pr CS4) encodes my videos without the effects of the plugins Genarts Sapp

    My Adobe Media Encoder (Premiere CS4) encodes my videos without the effects of the plugins Genarts Sapphire. I did not have this problem with CS2 and also he encodes all other plugins.
    Do you know why? I really need to solve this serious issue.
    Any help will be apprecieted,

    OK, good. Go to C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Premiere Pro\4.0 and look for two files called "Plugin Loading.log" and "Headless Plugin Loading.log" (without the quotes). These are just text documents, so open them up in Notepad or similar and compare the two; what you're looking for are references to your Sapphire plugins. What you'll probably find is that in "Plugin Loading.log", the plugins are loaded successfully--it will say something like "The plugin was successfully loaded from the registry."--whereas in "Headless Plugin Loading.log" the same plugin will be marked "The plugin is marked as Ignore, so it will not be loaded."
    If you see that, let me know and I'll try to walk you through the steps of correcting it. If you like, I'd be happy to look at the log files; attach them to a reply here (they're small documents).

  • Media Encoder issue or bug? 720p50 to 720i50

    Can anyone confirm a Media Encoder issue, happening when converting progressive 50-fullframe (or 60 for ntsc) to 50-interlaced frames?
    I tried to convert DVCProHD 720p50 clips to PAL DVD wich uses 576i50 (25 frames devided to 50 interlaced frames). The result was, that every second frame of the source clip was skiped, so I received a PAL clip in 25 full-frames (25p). And it didn't matter which field-order I choosed (upper/lower/progressive) - the result was always the same.
    when converting p50 to i50 I would expect, that AME would convert these 50 full-frames to 50 interlaced-frames with the field order I choosed. For example Canopus Procoder is working this way.
    Btw, I lost the link, where to report Premiere bugs to adobe. Can anyone post it, please?

  • SG200-08 Newbie Questions

    I have recently purchased the SG200-08 Smart Switch, but I have a few "newbie questions" about it as I get started using it.
    The on board firmware shows Is that the latest firmware to the switch?
    Do I need to enable IPv6 Auto Configuration and DCHPv6 in my switch settings to be ready for IPv6 as my ISP rolls it out down the road?
    How do I go about changing the switch's username? I was able to easily change the password, but having issues getting the username to change.
    Do I need to do anything about the LLDP-MED settings? What exactly is that?
    How do I confugure the System Time Settings so the switch functions in my time zone (USA Central Time)?
    Thanks a bunch for any assistance!

    Hi Nathan,
    My guess is that NAT is already on - you have one public IP address from your ISP. Your router will use NAT (network address translation) to allow multiple clients (and either dynamically assign them private IPs via dhcp or you set them statically) to connect to the internet using the one public IP. It also sounds like your RV042G is assigning both ipv6 and ipv4 addresses, and theres nothing wrong with that. Unless you have specific information re: ipv6 from your isp, however, I would suggest not worrying about it until you hear from them. Are your macs connected to the router via the SG200 switch? If so, it looks like its passing ipv6 just fine.  UPnP is something completely different - thats with opening ports like you mentioned - its a way that your devices can communicate with the router to automatically enable the proper port forwarding for the device/application.
    Regarding the username, create a new user account. I don't think you can edit the cisco user, but try deleting it after creating and testing a new user account..
    I'm not familiar with the Polycom system, but I would leave the settings as default unless you are using true IP phones (rather than an ATA adapter). From a quick google of the polycom device, I don't think you will gain anything from LLDP/CDP as the handsets use regular cordless phone freqs. With my setup, we use cisco IP desk phones and cordless wifi phones, CDP makes life easy as the cisco access point, wifi phones, cisco switch, and cisco desk phones (connected via ethernet) see each other and know what they're dealing with automatically.
    I don't see the SNTP setting for unicast / broadcast that you're looking at. For the switch to get the time from a sntp server, under administration -> time -> sntp settings, add a server, and then back on time-> system time, enable sntp server as the main clock source. What are you using as your sntp source? Do you have an internal sntp server? You don't need to enable dhcp on the sntp server.
    May I also point you to the two manuals, I think they may be helpful:  RV042G  & SG200
    Hope thats helpful.
    Please rate any helpful posts.

  • InDesign CS4/ InCopy issue

    Hi, I have a question regarding an issue I am having.
    I'm currently working on a book and I have the chapters saved as multiple indesign files (one file per chapter) they are set up for editing in InCopy as well. There have been changes inserted into InCopy from an external source and I have re styled the changes in InDesign CS4 (overset text, font issues, layout changes, etc) and saved them. The files haven't been touched in a week and when I go to open them now none of the changes I have made are there. I've checked the stories folder and for a few chapters there seem to be a conflicted copy of some of the icml files. I am just curious if anyone has experienced a similar issue and if it is possible to avoid having to go back and make all the changes again.

    Hi, it sounds like you might have either not saved the changes that you made, or that you saved a vision of your work that InDesign is not linking to.
    Have you made sure to update the links inside of InDesign?

  • Lost in the new CS4 encoder. How to I encode, after working with HD 1080p30, 1440x1080, (1.3333)?

    Hi there.
    I have just upgraded from CS3 to CS4, and I see that the Encoder looks totally different, so Im getting lost in here.
    I have just created a project that is recorded with a Sony HDV HVR-Z7U, an amazing camera btw. The project is about 9 minutes long.
    The settings I have are HD 1080p30, 1440x1080, (1.3333) and 29.97 fps
    So I have this question:
    - what settings in the new CS4 encoder must I have to obtain the best quality of my video? I just get lost in them right now..
    - what settings in the new CS4 encoder must I have to encode for a use for a website, but still mainain the best quality? I guess it doesnt have to be as big as the source file?
    I would really apriciate a quick answer.

    Okey. So this is how I did it:
    My recorded footage is:
    1440x1080 (1.3333)
    Audio 48000 Hz - Compressed stereo
    I encoded with:
    Format: Windows Media
    Preset: Custom (started with NTSC Source to High Quality Download)
    Filters: None
    Audiences: Compressed
    Codec - Windows Media Video 9 Advanced
    Encoding passes - Two
    Bitrate mode - Variable unconstrained
    Frame width - 720
    Frame height - 480
    Frame rate - 29.97
    Pixel aspect ratio - HD Anamorphic 1080 (1.3333)
    Keyframe interval - 5
    Average video bitrate - 5300 kbps
    Encoding passes - Two
    Bitrate mode - Variable unconstrained
    Codec - Windows media audio 9.2
    Audio format - 128 kbps, 48 kHz, stereo VBR
    File size: 342 MB (video is 8.40 min long)
    The result is great, but when some scenes where camera moves fast, here is the result:
    So, how can I get rid of those stripes? What have I done wrong with my encoding settings?

  • Adobe Media Encoder CS4 Encoding Error

    I got an error when Adobe Media Encoder CS4 encoding which is the crash of ImporterProcessServer. It crashes the halfway of the encoding process. I restarted my comp and tried several times before but the results still the same. Sometimes ImporterProcessServer did not crash but the encoder failed compiling without any error.

    RAM: 2GB

    First thing to check is what is on the Timeline at about the 50% point. Do you have an odd Asset there?
    Do you have a gap in the Video at about that point?
    Then, do you have adequate defragmented free space on the destination HDD?
    Good luck,

  • Total Newbie Question ... Sorry :-(

    I know it's a windows thing, and I am now converted to Mac but I gotta know this because it's doing my head in. It's a complete stupid green gilled newbie question.
    When installing new programs on a Mac can you create shortcuts to the programs on the Dock? I did what I THOUGHT it would be, i.e I made an Alias and stuck it in the dock, but on rebooting my Mac later on, in place of the shortcuts where 3 question marks which when clicked on did absolutely nothing???
    Windows XP Pro Desktop, Macbook Pro, 60GB iPod Video   Mac OS X (10.4.5)   OS X

    You aren't installing something from a dmg file are you? The dmg is a disk image – kind of a virtual CD. So when you double click the dmg and then get the little disk/hardrive/custom icon on your desktop that is the same as if you had mounted a CD. You then need to drag the application off of that "CD" into your application folder. Then it is truly installed.
    You can then "eject" the icon your your desktop. This is what happens when you shutdown and without remounting the image your dock shortcut can't find the original.
    Just a thought.

  • Newbie Question about FM 8 and Acrobat Pro 9

    I have some dcouments that I've written in FM v8.0p277. I print them to PDF so that I can have a copy to include on a CD and I also print some hard copies.
    My newbie question is whether there is a way to create a  PDF for hard copy where I mainitain the colors in photos and figures but that the text that is hyperlinked doesn't appear as blue. I want to keep the links live within the soft copy. Is there something I can change within Frame or with Acrobat?

    How comes the text is blue in the first place? I guess the cross-reference formats use some character format which makes them blue? There are many options:
    Temporarily change the color definition for the color used in the cross-reference format to black.
    Temporarily change the character format to not use that color.
    Temporarily change the cross-reference definition to not used that character format.
    Whichever method you choose, I would create a separate document with the changed format setting and import those format into your book, create the PDF and then import the same format from the official template.
