G'day I've got a project coming up that will require the delivery of a 30 minute show from around rural Australia. The edit will be done on site before being uploaded for grade, audio & conform then delivery to broadcast. Because of the locations, we're expecting slow upload speeds so file limit is 10Gb so we can make deadlines. I can do some things to up the transcode quality like making the dialogue single track mono, having the grader drop in the open / close titles, possibly even the supers & segment transitions, I'm open to any other tips. So my big questions are 1) Recommendations on a codec for the transfer keeping in mind it will still need to be graded and acceptable for broadcast. 2) Is there a benefit in dropping the frame size from 1080 to 720 or possibly even SD 3) Is it better to give the grader the shots in log even after they've been transcoded to what is likely to be a pretty compressed codec OR do I apply a first pass balance to give a bigger dynamic range then transcode for upload. Is there anything else I've missed ?
