There are 32-bit and 64-bit versions of this codec - CS5 will need the latter - are you sure both are installed?
um i think both are installed, or else WMP wouldn't show it right? Exactly what am I suppose to look for under premiere? does it show up automatically as Lagarith?
Are you selecting a format first (e.g. avi). Then the codecs will be options for that format.
yeah when i select AVI, all I see are the NTSC and PAL options, but no Lagarith....
How do we install the Lagarith codec (64 bit?) in windows 7? I downloaded a 2008, v 1.3.18 zip file, and followed the "standard" instructions, but it appears to have installed only the 32 bit version. I don't think the 64 bit version installed, because I don't see Lagarith listed in the media encoder / ms avi / video codec settings.
Thanks, Ann...Now I can see the lagarith codec in AME.
Question...if I'm running Pr CS5 on win 7 - 64 bit, can I assume that the installer loaded the lagarith 64 bit version? Does it matter?
I'm trying to generate a lossless elementary work file from an m2ts clip (video portion only), for eventual import into an Encore BD project. 1920 x 1080, 29.97 i. There doesn't seem to be a preset in the AME / MS AVI that is similar to the original file, so I manually set the pixel H and W, and upper/lower same as source. My first attempt yeilded a 160 G file from a 4 G clip, which flickers when play via WMP. FWIW, the m2ts source plays properly in WMP. This doesn't seem right, so I'm going to try again with a much smaller test file.
Is it possible to generate an elementary video stream from an m2ts source with AME?
If you can see the codec in Premiere its 64 bits.
Do not export to avi for DVD or BluRay. This is a extra compression you do not need.
You have two options use Dynamic Link and make a BluRay (BR) project and let Encore do the encoding and burning to BR-disk. This project can also be burned to dvd-disk.
Other option is to export from Premiere with the H.264 BluRay preset for BR or mpeg2-dvd preset for DVD. Import into Encore, author and burn.
regarding lagarith and uncompressed video
i have an lcd hdtv bigger than my monitor
i want to see what 1920x1080 30p looks like big
can i render my canon hfs10 avchd 24mb/s footage as a lagarith avi
and then run it through an hdmi cable
and get a true full hd 1920x1080 signal
because i had to manually raise the HxW scale to 1920x1080 from the default scale settings of SD (standard def)
that LAGARITH offers
the footage is somehow 'upsampled' to 1920x1080
and i'm not seeing a true hd signal
(i can't afford buying blu-ray discs yet, but am doing a lot of exporting tests)
(i've been following Shooterenz thread about AVCHD as a professional medium
and have seen your comments)
thanks in advance,

(don't know if i am complicating a simple process)
