N5 video solution MAC

Post by remuree » Wed Dec 29, 2010 12:33 pm

after long time of experimenting with different formats like photo jpg / h.264 / DV i can say just one word ::

only quicktime pro converted videos can make it run without a problem in N5

i tried handbreak/mpgstreamsclip and the same setting and there is a big difference to native quicktime pro conversion ..

i used a 1920x1080p video and run it thru this converters and only this one that came out from QT7 pro runs smoothly in fullscreen and on intesity pro ...the others have a shaky not smooth feeling

actually there is no big difference between h.264 and photo JPG / motion JPG etc which came out of Qt7 pro ..every of them runs smooth in N5

i think its the solution for now ...try ..

thx ...some interesting details ...

i made a render with handbreak according to the tutorial and i find still that QT7 do a better job specially on fast moving scenes ...with handbreak it still something not smooth in my opinion ..

Yep!

It depends on the settings.
There's nothing wrong with encoding with QT pro if you have the license for it.
Works very good. I do it myself.

The smoothness of the video depends on keyframes settings. For some reason this setting is different for QT Pro and Handbrake, mediacoder. For QT I set it to every 24 frames, for others - every 2 keyframes. Works here fine.

Yes, that's correct! QT gives you the best results. If you have it, definitely use it.
The tutorials were written to give people a free solution for encoding H264 video.
QT pretty much works out of the box, you don't have to set anything and the
quality is better.

Hi

I only use Apple ProRes 422 (proxy) encoded QT files in Nuendo .... usually 1080p 23.98 in our case... but they work great. Totally smooth, even when scrolling! (note I use a 1/2 screen size Nuendo preview window on a second 27" monitor)

Compressor 4 from the Mac App store will output these from any .mov, mp4, source. But if you want to input other sources ... avi, mts, wmv, and so on try

This app deals with everything I've ever thrown at it ... disks, weird video formats ... all out to ProRes. Done.
