I am editing a small talk show for a friend. The show is a one hour program, one camera shoot - shot with a canon GL2. It runs on local cable community access channels. I edited the first show in imovie 08, added titles, etc., but when I went to output it, I got a HUGE (12GB) avi file. I ended up outputting the highest quality mpeg file that i could and burned it to a DVD for the studio. They had some minor quality problems with it, but it got me by for the first show. This is the feedback they sent over: During QC, some minor items were noted that I'll simply bring to your attention: -- The DVD dub we received had some visible scratches on the outer edges of the playback surface. These apparently did not affect quality; -- The DVD dub had lower-than-normal audio levels (we adjusted for it); -- The form said it was 1:00:00 hr., but the actual TRT was 58:00 minutes. You could use up to 58:30 minutes (nominal TRT) if desired, but this shorter time works well for us; -- When I did a quick check of the DVD, to get a feel for the subject matter, I noticed slightly grainy video (similar to the digital compression artifacts). Nothing serious. The audio and the time aren't a problem. Its the other stuff that I dont know how to fix. My question is this, how should I export this for broadcast? They prefer some weird PC only codec which I cant remember off the top of my head.
