    New (ish) Avid H264 proxy resolution

    For the Avid folks...

    I have been playing around with the Avid h.264 800 proxy.  I like because I can keep offlines in an HD project in true 23.98 (vs 14-1 23.98 NTSC) but the resolution is so low I would have to relink and re render always to present to clients.

    I notice 1080i project gets an Avid h.264 2m proxy which looks infantly better.  Why isn't that avail in other frame rates?

    The compression scheme is from Interplay / Sphere. I do hope Avid expands the support. It is also silly that DNXHD 45 is available for 1080p and not 1080i.

    Also the H264 Avid resolution is still longgop so can't be exported SAS which is a shame.
