    Converting 1080i/50 sequence into 29fps 720x480 h.264

    Not sure if this is the correct board, mods please move if neccesary.

    I need to supply a 720x480 29fps H.264 clip (letterboxed) to a client from a 25fps 1080i/50 Avid sequence. Is there a quick and easy way from inside Media Composer 5 to do this? I thought of either passing on DNxHD to After Effects or Sorenson Squeeze.

    If anyone who has done this before with success can share their workflow it would be much appreciated.

    Using MC 5.0.3.7r (Win7), CS 5.5 Master Suite and Sorenson Squeeze 7

    Well in AVid you could just make an NTSC Sd project. Open the final sequence and it will apply motion adapters to all the clips. You then promote them to fluid motion if you need better quality and wait for the renders.

    There are other routes for software frame conversion but for the most part they rely on frame blending and that can look poor.

    Thanks Pat! I just learned something about Media Composer that I didn't know it could do. Fluidmotion is rendering now.

    I tried sending DNxHD to an NTSC After Effects comp but the audio/video doesn't looked very synced. The MC route will probably be more accurate.

    Much appreciated!

    Can I ask whats the easiest way to change the motion 

    adapters to fluid render? and is there a way of doing it 

    globally for every video motion adapter in a sequence?
