    convert 4k to 1080p


    I'm editing a 30 minute show on Media Composer 6.5.4 mac for 1080p 29.97 delivery.  What's the best way to convert 4K video to 1080?  And will time code carry over in conversion?  Thanks.

    Re: convert 4k to 1080p

    Depends on if you want to edit with a high bandwidth HD finishing codec (DNxHD 220x most likely in your case) or follow an offline to online workfllow. Either way timecode information should be maintained through a transcode.

    Typical workflow would be to AMA link the source clips into your project and then perform a transcode to either a high or low bandwidth codec depending on your workflow.

    MacOS 10.14, Media Composer 2018, Pro Tools 2019, 12-core Ivy Bridge Mac Pro, dual AMD D700, 64GB RAM, SSD system drive, 2-drive RAID 0 media drive, Nitris... [view my complete system specs]
