Finecast Deliverable help

Any suggestions on how best to create these specs? Maybe using media encoder?
no way to do it in Flame

I am very much confused by the Codec needing to be H264 in an MXF container but the file format as MP4

@PlaceYourBetts that makes no sense. FYI, most of the web deliverable spec sheets I come across make no sense either. So, make something that is as close as you can get, tell your client that it makes no sense and you’ll do your best, and it might just work for them. If not, it forces someone that actually knows wtf is going on to get in touch with you.

Don’t stress about it too much. Seriously. its all a poop shoot.

PlaceYourBetts –

Looking closely at your spec sheet I do agree that what they’re asking for doesn’t make much sense!

That said, I think your best option to export from Flame might be to use the “Sony XDCAM HD” preset. The resultant file will be MPEG-2 MP@H14/HL in an MXF container, though the CBR will be 35Mbps with chroma sampling at 4:2:0.

If you think you can push the bitrate, export with the “Sony XDCAM HD422” preset. Color sampling increases to 4:2:2 but the bitrate increases to CBR 50Mbps.
