O.k i got it!
Plus, if the target app only works with one color space, for example if it imports any footage but converts everything to RGB24, then you would be introducing an unnecessary color space conversion by sending it YUY2 footage.
So now the 10k $ question is how to figure out what color space app X works with. I have not yet found any information about it regarding Sorensson or ProCoder. They don't really print those thing with large letters. (Or, i have not found the right place yet..)
Well, Squeeze just accepted a YUV 4:2:0 source file and output a YUV 4:2:0 MOV file. So it seems you can feed Squeeze whatever you want from Pr. The only caveat is that I don't know if Squeeze is internally converting the YUV video to RGB before encoding it as YUV again. I don't see any logic in doing it that way, but I'm not a software engineer.
trying to get this afs workflow up and running
does anyone know if handbrake accepts watchfolders?
i keep setting the 'source' to my watchfolder
and AME begins to generate the avi intermediate file
but then just shows a green check mark for completed
and handbrake never gets started...
(the reason for this is to be able do 2pas vbr high 4.1 bluray exports
to see if they load up into encore without needing to transcode...)
thanks for any help,
up and running with afs and squeeze 7
however, i am only getting 1.80 fps video transfer rate
some scenes are heavily effected some are just straight footage
all of which are avchd 1920x1080 22mbit interlaced
on win7 cs5.03, quadro4000, 24gbram,many hdd's, i7 930 at 2.8ghz
does the fps transfer rate seem too slow
(i read somewhere that squeeze is not that good at multi threading
and it kinda shows: cpu is nowhere near 100percent usage
like when exporting out of media encoder...)
any help is appreciated...
I confirm this, I'm getting major headaches to get a proper frameserver for CC. The only workarounds are to export it as Lagarith or any other lossless codec and then compress it with third-party program.
For the record, I use AVCHD 1080i50 workflow and the output video has major glitches due to wrong frame ordering. I've tried all kind of settings in Premiere and AFS, nothing seems to help.
Turned out that the After Effects' multithreading option caused the glitches. I turned off Render multiple frames simultaneously in After Effects and the problem seems to be solved.
For the record, I use MeGUI with x264.
However, I'm getting weird cracking noises on the audio that don't appear in the project itself. The workaround is to export the audio as uncompressed PCM and then encode it to AC3, but what can I do to avoid the issue?
