I would like to export a PPro CS4 file for compression in Apples Compressor. Since non-compressed export seems not an option in the Media Encoder, Im unsure of the best way to go about this. My question, in other words: how to export an as-uncompressed-file-as-possible?
As a side note, I am also real curious as to why such options dont exist in Adobe Media Encoder?
I work on a 3.06 GHz Intel Mac with 4 GB RAM. The prproj file is 1080x720, HDV, NTSC, square pixels, and one hour long.
Your HDV source data is of course compressed. It is too bad that Apple does not support importing XML files like Adobe does. Apparently it is only a one way street. If I am not mistaken the only other possible way out is either another compression, or possibly a third party board/software since on a PC there is uncompressed AVI, but that surely will not work with Apple.
