So i just captured off a p2 for a studio using latest fcp - but ae designers and creatives are unable to view this footage in ae & quicktime.

I tried giving everyone my qt codecs from my library but still no luck.

Now i am transcoding them to animation codec but i am concerned about loosing a generation on this stuff - any thoughts - what am i doign wrong??

thanks

lisa

When you say you "captured off a P2" using FCP, what codec did you capture? DVC PRO HD (many flavours), AVC intra 50/100, or a standard definition codec.
If the files remained in native mxf format, then there can be some issues with AE (CS3) using those files. If however you transcoded through the "Log and Transfer" window in FCP then there should be no issue as AE has all the QT codecs loaded from the box.
Check the files in the FCP browser window to see what they are.
Do you have QT4MXF (demo or full version) loaded? This can make identifying the native MXF files through FCP a bit tricky, so make sure you are identifying the right files to give to the AE artists.
Just another thought, is the AE artist using a MAC or PC?

Hi,

Your AE designers can download a free demo of our Calibrated{Q} DVCProHD Decode codec for Mac or Windows here:

http://www.calibratedsoftware.com/QDVCProHD.asp

Also, Premiere Pro CS4 and AE CS4 can natively import DVCProHD QuickTime movies except for 1080p24,1080p25,and 1080p30 DVCProHD QuickTime Movies and another company called DVFilm has a DVCProHD QuickTime codec for Windows.

Cheers,
Greg

Hi..

But for Raylight to work you also have to install Matrox codecs which don't seem to have been updated since 2002 and consequently won't even unpack on a machine running vista.. or am I completely wrong here?
