Has anyone used Streamclip to make files for their Apple TV 3?
If so, I am curious to what settings you used as I can't find any.
Anyway, I am now setup to capture with the digital toslink. Anything different I need to know while capturing? I mainly capture from TV, 720p or 1080i. I don't really do movies.
As previously stated, my advice would be to try the various proosible work flows and decide for yourself which is the best for you.
1) You can export the original capture to a 720p60 MP4 file container with H.264/AAC conpressed data using the software Michael mentioned, edit in MPEG Streamclip, and save the edited content using the "Save As..." option which does not recompress the data further. This would likely be the fastest work flow.
2) You can export the source M2TS capture file (either 720p60 or 1080i60) using Handbrake and convert the file to an TV3 compatible file (720p30, 720p24, 1080p30 or 1080p24) st the same time, edit in MPEG Streamclip, and save the edited content using the "Save As..." option which does not recompress the data further.
Both work flows have advantages and drawbacks which is why you should evaluate both work flows to see which best suits your needs and is acceptable with regard to the final output. Specific settings have already been discussed sot what you need to concentrate on is which work flow provide the size file you want with the playback quaility you can accept. Also remember that there is "no one shoe fits all" here if you are trying to get the best quality in the smallest package. Settings may have to be varied depencing on the quality of the captured source content and project requirements.
