Exported a series of clips ( files ) from Symphony to AE. ( QT )
Take for instance one file ( clip ) is 128MB using DNX 1:1x.
AE Composition etc at highest quality settings.
Exporting the clip bck to Symphony using the same Codec
yields a file of 37MB showing less detail.
The only way I have managed is using the animation Codec
then all is well with or without Alfa. ( 300MB ) Sharp.
Please leave Premiere out of the loop.
Adobe doesn't care, Avid doesn't care. That about covers it. Nobody feels responsible for actually addressing these issues. This has been messy for several years now (just like QT refs). That aside of course you may see a tiny bit of normal degradation since DNX 1:1 is still mildly compressed. And naturally messing up the Gamma will further pronounce any artifacts that may exist in the footage. As it stands, you will have to live with it, but of course play around with the import and export settings. In some situations it's not that bad and faster than flattening and converting movies just for export. Does it show that we use Avid, too?
Many thanks for your reply.
The animation route is giving me as near a match to the original as it can get bck to Symphony. Preserve RGB.
It is just hard to understand that the DNX 1:1x Codec is actually the same Codec being used both ways.
A DNX 1:1x in theory should be the same file size should it not..
