I have moved over to PP from avid media composer, I have constructed a 720p timeline that has 3 different formats of HD video in it: ProRes 422 LT, Canon 60D (H.264?) and Avid DNXHD. The playback from the timeline is fine once I have rendered the clips, but upon export, using vared export settings mpeg2, h.264, I it always freezes, Ive tried sending it over to media encoder, but I have the same problem.
I think it has to do with the codecs and OSX 10.7, as they say the DNXHD codec might be buggy. I havent got FCP installed on the machine so I am confused why ProRes Codec is working?
Any infomation would be of great help!
Did you get DNxHD support on Lion 10.7? I haven't successfully been able to download DNxHD on my Mac. Need to convert ProRes to DNxHD for Avid Symphony 1.02 (yeah, pretty early).
Last time I checked, DNXHD isnt supported in 10.7 yet. Right now I dont think there is a good soulution, I ended up converting everything to proress and let it as that. I have been looking at Cineform Neoscene as the to codec of choice, not sure yet though.
I downloaded the Avid codec on my iMac running Lion and it pretended to fail upon installation, but in actuality did install fine. I am using DNxHD as a transcoding codec with AME or MPEG Streaclip without a hitch (I don't have FCP so I can't use ProRes and Cineform's codecs refuse to function). YMMV.
