Dear sir/mam,

We have shooted a movie in SOny DSR 500

after that we converted these sequences in

TARGA 720 x 576 now we want it to export

into 2048 x 871 motion picture anamorphic so

can you help me givving a sugession how to

convert it .

The main issue is
1. 25 fps to 24 (having PAL feilds)
2. how much we can scale an image to avoid

3. which software is best suited to get the
4. RATIO of conversion squeezed & unsqeezed

thanks in advance

Regarding size and aspect ratio issues, talk to the people at the filmout bureau to co-ordinate the desired result. If the video has a 4:3 aspect ratio then it will suffer when transferring to 2.35 anamorphic because you will be throwing away so much vertical resolution from the original video frame.
As far as resizing the image deinterlacing and changing the frame rate, have a look at the software made by a company called Algolith:

They also allow you to rent a license for a week, which can be convenient if you are on a low budget.
