Setting Up and Capturing Media to an OfflineRT Format
Before you capture, you need to choose an appropriate OfflineRT format for offline-quality
editing in Final Cut Pro.
To prepare your project for capturing media to an OfflineRT format:
Choose an OfflineRT Easy Setup that corresponds to the standard or your original
footage (NTSC or PAL) and frame rate.
OfflineRT Easy Setups are named with the following conventions:
Â Video standard: NTSC or PAL
Â Frame rate: The frame rate is included in the name of an OfflineRT Easy Setup when
nonstandard frame rates are used, such as 23.98 fps for NTSC video.
Â Anamorphic: Choose an anamorphic Easy Setup if you shot your original footage with
an anamorphic lens or the anamorphic (16:9) setting selected on your camcorder.
For information about choosing an Easy Setup, see Volume 1, Chapter 11, “Connecting
DV Video Equipment.”
