Hi,

 

Client has requested files to be exported to the below format.

XDCAM50 @50Mbits/sec
MXF wrapper

25fps

progressive

 

The videos to be exported are 9x16 and 4x5. But I'm not able to change video settings in output. It's locked to 1920x1080.

Is there a way to export videos in dimensions other than 1920x1080 as MXF?

XDCAM is a broadcast format with defined set of specifications: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XDCAM

for 50Mbps @25fps, 1920x1080 or 1280x720 are the only supported frame sizes. Is there a reason you need XDCAM? If so, then you can fit your video to the desired dimensions inside a 1920x1080 frame, but I think there's a missing piece or two of information you need to figure out why the client is requesting this format.

 

Is it going to be broadcast? Does the broadcaster have a more complete set of specs? Does the client understand the broadcast format requirement or do you have two competing sets of requests—the required broadcast format and the format you created your project in?

Thank you David for the info. The client wants the videos in mp4 and mxf(with the XDCAM codec).

Is there any other codec that lets us export 9x16 and 4x5 in mxf wrapper?

You can use ProRes in an MXF wrapper with a custom frame size, but many codecs still have frame size rules. For example, some require that the dimensions be even or divisible by "8."

 

ProRes as MXF is in a new-ish format category of its own, you won't find it under MXF or QuickTime; it will be near the top of your list labeled "Apple ProRes MXF OP1a."

 

Again, though, I think it's important to find out why the client wants (or thinks they want) the files as MXF with XDCAM given the less common aspect ratios.

Premiere Pro can output to any aspect ratio you want without the need to make several different sequences.  The video link below demonstrates this at about one and a half minutes in.  The dimensions of 9X16 and 4X5 sound odd. 4:3 and 16:9 are the industry standards.

This video shows how to output odd aspect ratios and resolutions to broadcast equipment using the Intensity Shuttle.#intensityshuttleLinks to Intensity Shutt...
