Initial impressions or life experiences?
Harm, it got my attention as well. Especially when I was actively looking for mastering codecs that would allow more speed when exporting. After talking with their rep on the phone (who was VERY hard to get a hold of) II did not purchase it.
The higher end version of the product that had LOTS of codecs was to costly.
Let me know if you discover anything noteworthy about it.
I try the demo version of total code for Premiere 6.0.3
I am very disappointed, because in H264/AVC export ,
preset HDTV 1080i
frame rate changed from 25i to 50p
the value of Reference Frames (Advanced setting panel) is always ignored and set to 3 in output,
Changing this value, or any B-frame setting has no effect, output is always 3 Ref Frames. (Checked via Mediainfo)
This is very annoying as many Multimedia-disks players (Like DVICO S1) does not support well Ref Frames greater than 2 (=> generate lags during video play).
This is a bug in Totalcode, as it was previously working in MainConcept Codec suite 5.1
Any way to bypass this bug will be appreciated, I plan to migrate to Totalcode for Cuda acceleration.
