When your master sequence is complete, choose “video mixdown” from the “special” menu.
In the “Video Mix-down” dialog window choose a target bin for the new mix-down.
Choose XDCAM HD 50Mbits MXF from the resolution drop down menu.
Then choose the Target Drive for the file. Make sure it has enough available space for the XDCAM HD file.
There is no need to render the sequence before you start the video mix-down, since the rendering will be done during the process.
In the user “Audio Settings” set the “Default Pan” to “Alternating L/R”.
This will automatically set the audio tracks to track 1 L, 2 R, 3 L, 4 R etc., and make sure you always get a stereo mix when exporting.
Pans in the “Audio Mixer will override the default settings, so make sure the Audio Mixer is set correctly.
When the mixdown is done, make a copy of your master sequence. Delete all video tracks in your new sequence and replace them with the new video mixdown, so there is only one video track.
The number of audio track you have in your timeline is not important as long as it adds up to a stereo mix. Most likely there is an audiomix as well from the audio post.
With the new sequence ready, right click in the recorder window and choose export.
From the pop up dialog choose “Options”. This will take you to the export settings window. (See figure)
Follow the exact same settings as shown in the figure on the right. Then click “save as” and name the settings file.
A good choice could be “ViasatTapeless_HD”. Save the settings file on a server available to all users.
The exported master file should be saved to a server/disk which you can reach from you upload station.
Please choose a file name using only the English alphabet and without any blank spaces.
Name the file with the House number for programs, e.g. 404243 (house numbers are provided by Viasat).
For promos use the BSS naming convention e.g. “Landskampen_102_TMR _2030_15”
This is Landskampen 1st season, second episode, Tomorrow, air time 20:30, 15 seconds.
