Being a PC user, working with .mov files, Media Reactor offers great options!
So I bought it and installed it, but I haven't be able to use it so far....
I've encountered two main issues :
- I can't export QT H264 -> I don't have the codec displayed in the MOV QuickTime file (MR) list (only ProRes/YCBR/DNX)
- I tried to export a ProRes file but I'm getting an error :
I tried to put a video limiter effect, but nothing changed...
I've contacted Media Reactor support, but they aren't helpful at all. They were supposed to came back to me with a new version within the week, but It's been 3 months now. And everytime I ask them for an updated the answer is always the same : next week.
Did someone encountered the same issues? I tried to reinstall it, without succes.
To the best of my knowledge, the only legal way to create ProRes files on Windows is using Blackmagic Fusion. There have been other companies offering such an option, but those options always seem to "go away" in short order.
MP4 is fairly ubiquitous for H.264. I would recommend just using that.
I agree, but only the studio version allows you to do ProRes files, which is not in my budget....
It's only $300 now.
Additionally, Cineform and DNx are every bit as good as ProRes. DNx has the added advantage of coming in the superior MXF container.
