This was posted in "FCPX How-To Tutorials", maybe not the correct place for it.

I'm experienced in producing media for online platforms. I have a new client who wants to place their ad on DirecTV. I need some help in understanding DirecTV's requirements and knowing if FCPX can produce what is needed. I received DirecTV's requirements which I've attached to this post. If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated. I know for one, I can't export audio at the 384 kbps as FCPX / Compressor can only export at a max of 192, or am I wrong?

Thank you.

Double-post, answered in the other thread.

I'd simply set the audio to 48kHz and 16 bit, that's pretty standard, no matter what. Never had any station I've delivered to complain.

Compressor can be set to export audio at 320 kbps max as long as your sample rate is set to at least 44.1 khz or higher. 48khz is typically used. We have used Sorensen Squeeze (no longer available unless you have previously purchased it) in the past to export at 384 kbps.

If your source audio file is at 384 kbps you can enable "Audio pass through" in Compressor to send it out unmodified.
Creating history....one edit at a time !
