I have been looking at the soon to be released upgrade to CS5.5, but can't seem to find the specific info I'm looking for via
I work with P2 and Ikegami based media primarily. When we first purchased CS5 we had to buy the MainConcept Codec Suite 5.
This works great, but we will need another license for a second tower, which runs about $500, but Adobe seems to be indicating that it's range of native codecs is improving with the CS5.5 upgrade. I can't seem to pinpoint an exact list of the supported codecs. Can anyone confirm that CS5.5 will or will not have built in codec support for Ikegami HDS-V10 media recorded to GFPak? Otherwise, I think will hold off on the upgrade and spend the money on the additional MainConcept license.
I think that unless you see it listed specifically here (Extend : Compatibility | Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5), it's probably not happening in CS5.5. That rig seems specific enough that it would be worthy of a mention, if it was supported.
Does this camera shoot too MXF or GXF? Just wondering out loud if it's the container that is incompatible with CS5, or if it's the codec...
Thanks for the reply. That's what I figured, but thought I would double check. The Ikegami camera shoots MXF and works great on my system with MainConcept installed. It functions just as natively as P2 just without the thumbnails in the media browser.
Perhaps Ikegami will catch on and there will be more demand for a built in feature in a future version.
have a great week,
