    Re: Does Avid accept H265 yet?

    Once you have your project setup, just drag the H265 DJI clips on to the Media page. They should be available. Now if you want to export Avid files you can do so from the deliver page.

    1st make a timeline by selecting all your clips that you want to convert on the media page, right click and choose "Create New Timeline Using Selected Clips". Just OK through the next dialog. Once you have a timeline go to the Deliver page. Here you can set up your export settings and destination.

    If you want DNxHR HXQ 12 bit, you can choose it here. I'll attach the settings I used, Main thing is you want to check "individual clips" is set in the render section so it will give you a file for each file you have rather than one massive file (unless you want that).

    Once you've set up your export settings hit Add to Render Queue and then on the right side of the page just hit start and Resolve will start exporting to whereever you have told it to. You can do this directly in to an Avid MediaFiles>MXF>1 folder and then simply rebuild the database and drag the new database file in to a bin.

    I've never had to install extra codecs. Everything always works right out the box.

    Re: Does Avid accept H265 yet?

    hi guys,

    i'm not sure what is the bitrate of the dji drone footage u r getting, but it seems to me that converting to dnxhr hqx is maybe a bit overkill, for footage probably in the range of 100 to 200 mb/s...

    i'm in the same situation experimenting right now with footage from a  gh5, 6k 4x3  in h265 at 200mb/s, 420 10 bit.

    the avid codec for 10bit is a little less than 1600mb/s, so i started to experiment with conversion to prores 422 (about 820mb/s)  versus 422hq at over 1700mb/s.

    as far as i believe, those two codecs are 10 bit and the 422 would make managing transcoded file easier and half the size...

    what do you guys think?

     

    by the way, the footage linked with drastic media reactor lite does not play very smoothy in avid and not so great in resolve either...

    i just tried to use the transcode inside avid 2020.4                                                                    with shutter encoder:

     

    original clip:h265   200mb/s       420_10           8 sec.        (184mb)                       

     

    prores 422 proxy    234mb/s      422_10                             (224mb)                                                   154mb/s

    prores 422 lite        616mb/s      422_10                             (589mb)                                                   433mb/s

    prores 422            1089mb/s      422_10                           (1020mb)                                                   725mb/s

    prores 422 hq       1481mb/s      422_10                            (1380mb)                                                 1507mb/s

    my files would still technically be  420_10 but that's ok.  

     

    i think that prores lite should be a good choice.

    by the way, i did try shutter encoder 13.7 a few days ago - it would transcode to prores 422hq, but wouldn't do dnxhr hqx...

    Re: Does Avid accept H265 yet?

    Hi!

     

    So by reading this thread I assume Avid MC 2020 doesn't accept native Dji Mavic drone (in my case, AIR 2) footage to be directly linked with UME?

    How's that possible when Premiere and Resolve link those files natively?

    I guess what you are asking is how can Avid compete with the likes of Adobe and Black Magic Design when their flagship NLE cannot natively link to H265 footage from popular consumer drones and cameras?

    Avid is certainly behind. It is probably best to use freely available software to transcode your H265 footage to something like DNxHR or ProRes for the time being.

    I would expect Avid to eventually support H265 but even then it will probably require transcoding to something more edit-friendly as part of an offline/online workflow...

    Re: Does Avid accept H265 yet?

    I second Resolve 16 either. Just received some drone files that MC could not link, I dropped them into Resolve and they work fine, I could export to an Avid friendly format. Nonetheless Avid has to address this ASAP, please go to the features request forum and join the thread asking for h265 support, both in and out please!

    Re: Does Avid accept H265 yet?

    There was a plug-in (MediaReactor from Drastic.tv) that did supported h.265, but it's no longer supported by Avid. At this point the only option is to transcode to something Avid friendly. Also bear in mind that h.265 is a licensed protocol for which commercial products have to pay to distribute. I've never been able to find the cost of the license as the companies that sell their protocols don't tend to list them (and often bind you to a Non-Disclosure Agreement to prevent you from posting the price).

    Re: Does Avid accept H265 yet?

    I've double checked and my footage is h265 HEVC footage from a DJI drone. Both VLC and Shutter encoder can handle these files, both are ffmpeg based, which is open source, so what is the licensing problem as a really good decode/encode engine is already freely available?

    Wouldn't using open source software require Avid to release their code? Isn't that part of the deal?

    So I presume they are going for another route to access that codec.

    I guess Avid should only acknowledge they used source code from FFmpeg, no need to disclose the entire MC source.

    Re: Does Avid accept H265 yet?

    ffmpeg is free and open source. No license is required. You only require licenses for commercial products. You can be sure the other major NLEs have licensed the codec. In the past, Avid has generally used 3rd party plug-in to support codecs not natively used by MC. Or why it took them years to before they supported Sony XAVC-S natively.

    Re: Does Avid accept H265 yet?

    Just been linking H265 footage to MC 2020.10 using the mediareactor plug-in and it works fine. Can't say the same thing about Gopro Hero 8 black footage, which links (using Mediareactor as well) but does't play in the left composer pane, only plays when in a timeline.

     

    Come on Avid, just buy MediaReactor technology, tweak it well and include it in UME ;)

    "Does anyone know if you can save presets in it - cant seem to find a way."

    Choose your settings and hit Contol-S. This lets you save the preset. Hit the "Star" icon to the right of "Start Function" and a window will open with your presets in it.
