Open AME (Media Encoder) and choose to make a new preset. In the New Preset Dialogue Box choose DNxHD as your format then choose one of the presets. Once you have chosen a preset you can go down under the "Video" tab and under "Video Codec" choose from the long list if codecs. There are several flavors of 1080p 59.94, but I don't see any @ 145, but there are 1080p 59.94 presets.
thanks for the fast reply - but i just ran into the dreaded ame won't open problem..I click on it and ame simply will not open up..ugh.
Shane; I got ame to work but the 1080p 59 option is simply not there.
i got the codec from here
where did you get your codec from? download link?
What version of PP are you using?
PP 6. But it's clear the avid codec i d/l is diff then Shanes' - where can I get that one?
pointbod, it looks like Shane P is using Premiere Pro CC. DNxHD is bundled with CC.
But, try to update to DNxHD 2.3.9 first: http://avid.force.com/pkb/articles/en_US/download/Avid-Codecs-LE-2-3-9

Yes, I am using PP CC and AME CC on Win 7 Pro 64.
@pointbob, sorry I didn't think to ask which version of PP/AME you are running as it does make a difference. As Averdahl said only the CC version of AME has DNxHD bundled in it. I am able to transcode my native AVCHD 59.94 media to DNxHD 59.94 smoothly with no issues at all either going directly through AME or going through PL>AME.
The only thing I don't like is the very large file sizes it produces compared to the native AVHD.
