The problem: How to go from 1080p 60fps to 1080p 30fps (for TV 3 playback)? I'm new to FCPX and Compressor. I shoot everything with a Panasonic HDC-HS900 at 1080p 60fps with Dolby Digital 5.1. I use ClipWrap to convert the footage to Pro Res 422. That will make it easy to get the footage at 60p (actually 59.94) into FCP X flawlessly. I edit the footage as I want it and render a final master file at 1080 60fps with Dolby Digital 5.1. This all works perfectly fine. What I need now is a way to ALSO render a 30fps version at highest quality for the latest generation TV. That means I need a way to drop every other frame so that I go from 60fps to 30fps while trying to keep picture & sound quality as high as possible. Prior to buying Compressor, here's what I've tried: Rendering as a QT file with Pro Res 422, using a third party utility to add chapters, testing to make sure all is good with that file, then running it through Handbrake, High Profile setting changing frame rate to 29.97. This yields a nice, compact file that looks great but the audio gets out of sync toward the ends of these (sometimes 1-2 hour movies). Load up the 60fps Pro Res 422 file in QT7 and export it with everything at high settings but changing the frame rate to 29.97. Same effect (audio slips out of sync well into the resulting movie). I have Adobe Creative Suite and it includes Adobe Media Encoder 5.5. I max out all the settings per TV3 limits and change fps to 30. This will yield a file with audio in sync all the way through... but no DD5.1 and no chapters. Plus, this option takes a VERY L O N G time. So, I purchased Compressor but haven't been able to figure out the preset I need that will do what I want. I'd love to get 2 presets: takes over the master file render 1080p 60fps H.264 with DD5.1 and Chapters same as 1 but drops every other frame and yields a 30fps version of the file that maximizes quality per TV 3 capabilities. Quality over file size is what matters to me here. So then, I would simply do the work in FCPX and pass the resulting file to Compressor 2 times: once for #1 (to build a master file) and again for #2 to build an TV3 copy. Anyone able to guide me through this? I perceive that Compressor can easily handle this but I can't seem to figure out how to set it up right. If Compressor can't do this, does anyone know a great media converter that could take the master file and yield a 30fps TV version without losing audio sync (and keeping DD5.1 and chapters)? I'm fine with continuing to export Pro Res 422 too (then using Handbrake) but that means I need a way to export Pro Res 422 at 30fps for the second copy (and then using Handbrake). This latter idea doesn't seem to be built into FCP X. Any help will be greatly appreciated!
