This unique workflow package allows the user to choose to edit in 1080p, 1080i or straight to standard definition 16×9 25fps. Custom droplets give one click access to compressor that will convert the H264 files into ProRes for editing. The user also has a choice whether to make the clip realtime (i.e. 30fps to 25fps) or timestretch so that one frame in 30fps is one frame in 25fps. This will result in a slowdown of 20% for pin-sharp results.
Compressor droplets are supplied to get the final 1080p/i self contained movie into standard definition 16×9 too. An easy to follow workflow diagram helps plot the conversions needed to get the best quality from a Canon camera’s 30fps HD files to 25fps.
