    Standalone DNxHD software encoder?

    Hey guys - is there a standalone Avid DNxHD software encoder? or another encoder that can

    encode to DNxHD with all the different data-rate & bit flavors of DNxHD?

    Cheers.

    Tim,

    Here is one possibility that I use. almost daily, for encoding my Canon DSLR files to DNxHD.

    Or just use Squeeze with the mxf add if you want to avoid double transcodes, files and space and transcode directly to the Avid library.

    Will cost some but maybe worth it if time and space is valuable for you.

    You can also try to DaVinci Resolve, the lite version is free, but enough.
    It is a tool for color correction, but transcoding works well.

    Yes, of course Villiam, haven´t tried that one yet, maybe some rainy day.

    There's any number of stand alone encoders, if you have the DNxHD encoder installed on your machine. Avid makes 'Metafuze' precisely for this reason. TmpGenc and Adobe's Media Encoder also work well, not to mention Quicktime Pro.

    But if you want mxf wrapped DNxHD there are fewer options. The squeeze plugin can do it but so can Resolve lite (and it's free)

    If you create MXF avid media outside Avid then just be aware that it won't have a Project name embedded in the media. So Avids media tool won't show that media as related to your project.

    Re: Standalone DNxHD software encoder?

    I have adobe encoder, I've never used metafuze before would some be kind enough to do a step by step, it would be good to bring in media to a project without doing an additional transcode to make MC recognise it in the project, cheers!

    Re: Standalone DNxHD software encoder?

    Honestly, while MetaFuze served a noble purpose for some time, I'm not sure it does anything that Resolve can't do. Not sure I'd recommend anyone spending time learning MetaFuze. Resolve seems to become the standard tool for creating digital dailies.

    Re: Standalone DNxHD software encoder?

    Also - can anyone confirm if Metafuze is able to transcode MTS / AVCHD files - I dont think it recognises this file type

    And then lets not forget that MC7 will do the transcodes as a background process so this is somewhat like a standalone transcoder and you get the added benefit of having the MXF file linked to your project.

    Pat, That's true for Squeeze's v.8. Export to > Avid MXF, but Video ToolShed has a dedicated product which Exports to Avid MXF that does allow naming a Project, which then works within MediaTool. What you do not get as of last month is the ability to merge AVCHD files that were recorded with continuous TC chunks, due to long record times. But I'd bet Video Toolshed mnages to provide that feature before Squeeze.... and at a fraction of the cost.

    As this is a known feature of MC 7 I´m quoting from a test I did with 7 some week ago just so that you are aware of what will come ... Smile    no more comments .....

     

    So I have a slight cold and also wanted to see how I could use the bg transcode to speed up my own workflow.

    Direct ama linked from card placed on mediadrive about 2 hours of Sony Avchd media.

    Placed it all on a sequense untouched.

    Copied that sequense to a new bin and activated bg transcode on it.

    Started to edit the directlinked sequense, cuts trimming cc etc , only one layer and I was in y / gr mode.

    When that edit was finished the bg transcode was also finished, I simply highlighted all the transcoded clips together with the just edited sequense and relinked to selected media.

    Worked like a charm.
