I have several hours of video in mpeg-2 transport stream format (.m2t). These are directly ripped from NTSC digital cable in North America.
The commercials/advertisements need to be removed. The editing has to be frame-accurate (on keyframes/GOP), and done without recompressing/reconversion.
The resulting files should then be re-multiplexed for standard dvd-compliance (without recompression).
Additionally, the videos need to be converted (without the ads) to a standard file-sharing xvid/avi format (including cropping and aspect ratio adjustment as needed). All of the video is 4:3, however in some cases the actual content is 16:9. This should be done with a high quality conversion platform and of course the a/v has to be in sync.
The edited MPEG2 transport streams, dvd-compliant MPEG-2 files, and converted AVIs would then be delivered back to me, preferably via download from a high speed server.
This should be a very simple and straight forward job for someone with video editing experience and tools. The transport stream files are approximately 2GB per hour of footage, so these will either by sent to you by mail or uploaded to a server (yours or mine).
Please indicate your rates both per hour of footage and as well as any discount rates for volume (if there is a difference). I may also have some HD footage which will need similar conversions later.
I can upload a short-duration of test-footage for you to evaluate the files and also demonstrate your ability to fulfill the job requirements.
We can discuss any questions via PM prior to final bidding.
