View Full Version : Exports to QT DNX Codec from RedCine
12-04-2007, 11:07 AM
Forgive me if I am going over old ground here.
I have been doing some tests exporting to DNX36 from RedCine and the results look like I just keyed over white noise...I can see some representation of the image through the shash but it is basically garbage. The QT Movie inspector reports that is is DNX etc... Further in the RedCine export options, I am not seeing any of the normal options one would see in sub menus once one has chosen QT with the DNX specific codec.
I am wondering if there is any testing going on with this by anyone else and if anyone else is seeing this.

I have heard it's something to do with DNxHD not liking the wrapper QT of the R3D file.
I have not been able to create a DNxHD on my OSX except by making a quicktime in RedCine then converting via Compressor. Not the optimal flow. But at least compressor gives you the various DNxHD codec options.

Currently there is no choice to select any other data rate than the default DnxHD115 (for 23.976/24fps rates). Once DNxHD is selected, that is it.

Is that just because RedCine isn't tying into the standard QT codec options dialogue? So hopefully might be an easy fix?
I am new to this forum, but am having quite successful results with getting DNxHD quicktimes out of redcine into avid.
There is a few steps involved but the end result is well worth it.
I found the key was to use redcine on an intel based mac to export the DNxHD files for a PC Adrenaline, as redcine on XP only exports a mess of white noise(a known bug). The limitation of the mac is that it can only export one clip of DNxHD at a time(also a bug), and any clips over 38 seconds, that are obviosly split into multiple files(due to reds file size limit), have to be broken down and exported in chunks.
After some investigating i found that if i loaded all the clips into redcine and then disabled all but the one i was exporting, it would export successfully.
So i wrote a macro in os x that disabled the old clip and enabled the new clip, clicked export and waited till the file was no longer gaining in size, and then looped the macro, and then the next morning I had a big fat chunk of DNxHD 1080p footage ready to import, which ended up being quite fast.
I had to rejoin some clips in avid, but it was well worth it.
If anyone is interested i would be glad to explain in more detail.

thanks for you efforts trying and trying :construction: .then writting Macros.is there is anyway to make it as part of one software or something with redcine .to make it easier steps..formula:innocent:
