    Another option for FCP users is to use Raylight for Mac from DVFilm. It allows FCP to work with the MXF files natively without having to rewrap everything in a QuickTime container -- much quicker, saves disk space, and keeps all metadata intact.

    Hi Dorian,

    We've had the same problem, with a Mac client wanting DVCPRO HD Quicktime files. This was because they have to "render" (in Final Cut) the file and they lose quality on the recompression.

    What we did, is supplied them a P2 CONTENTS folder of DVCPRO HD content. This way, the Mac ingests the P2 folder and pulls the data into a Quicktime HD file on it's end. No quality loss... and an easy way for them to get it back as DVCPRO HD. You are still delievering DVCPRO HD, just in P2 format.

    It was my suggestion to my client that they could do that and not lose quality. But if they are using AE or something, then I guess P2 is going to be a bit annoying for them.

    It's another option anyway... and certainly one that worked perfectly in our DVCPRO HD Mac vs. PC situation. (and can only be done in Edius Broadcast)

    Hope this maybe of help,

    Chris

    You are correct. You just can't open these DVCPROHD .avi files under OSX...whoever uses DVCPROHD should contact Apple or post in this forum to see if anyone can help you out:

    Ca you help me ?

    Thank you.
    You can't. Even if you open the avi files in quicktime, it will all just be white.

    Your best bet is to capture to Microsoft DV...and just stick with MSDV throughout your whole process...that is if you export a file from Edius, check the "Use Microsoft DV" box before you export.

    Use ScenalyzerLive to capture to MSDV.

    Unfortunately in that case, you're left with no options. There is no way (that I know of) to make a DVCPRO HD QuickTime file on a Windows machine.

    unfortunately that will not help!
    The instruction is clear: DVCPro HD in Quicktime!
    AVI files are not accepted

    As far as I know, there is no Mac version of the Canopus codecs, so you can't use Canopus HQ or Canopuis Lossless. If you stick to a codec that is supported on the Mac, you should have no trouble using AVI files.

    Right. I was responding to the post from STORMDAVE who said the original poster should request Animation Codec files. That's not necessary because Edius can work with DVCProHD QuickTime files.

    The only thing the original poster can do is to ask the people who supply him .mov files to export it to a lossless codec such as Animation Codec or PNG (Use lossless for both).

    Yes, ONLY the MAC version supports DVCPRO HD Quicktime.
