Re: Best/Fastest Render Format for HD Video?
by John Rofrano in the Sony Vegas Forum
If you have a Graphics card that is supported by MainConcept AVC, it will be the fastest of the AVC/H.264 encoders. You don't want to give your customers something they'll need to install codecs to play so I would stick with giving them MP4 files and use MainConcept AVC and...

Re: Import exotic-encoded media (*.xesc)
by John Rofrano in the Sony Vegas Forum
[Jens Theisen] "I'm wondering: Since the codec is obviously installed somehow, can't Sony Vegas make use of it?" I don't know but it probably has something to do with the fact that Windows has several video subsystems, e.g., DirectX, Video for Windows, etc, and Vegas probably doesn't look for that...

by David Baud in the Adobe Premiere Pro Forum
You need to use a font that is compatible with Chinese characters: not all of them are. This is why you are getting a square symbol in lieu and place of the correct Chinese character. Do you know Chinese? if not I would make sure you have a Chinese speaker/reader...

Best/Fastest Render Format for HD Video?
by John Lee in the Sony Vegas Forum
I film using my Sony Camcorder, which produces .m2ts files. I merge/splice them together to make sports highlight videos. Using Vegas, I have typically rendered the final product using the "Sony AVC/MVC" format to produce a .m2ts file that looks very good. Initially, I merge the files of a particular...

Re: Panasonic GH4 4k video - Apple ProRes or ProRes HQ?
by Matthew Sonnenfeld in the Panasonic GH Cameras Forum
That's correct. All parts being equal with the codec as the only difference, you won't actually gain quality by using HQ. If you will be doing heavy grading, you might want to consider it. But at that point I would seriously take a look at a codec like Cineform. Co-President...
