AVC-I users that are interested in DPX.

With a new free plug in from Panasonic and the latest version of P2CMS for Mac, you can now turn your AVC-I files into DPX files.

Cool.

With awesome results in filmRec mode...
The blacks in Color are behaving like a film scan!
The down side is that their is no conform from EDL so everything is done by hand!...

Glue tools ... OK I have glue tools since a year now, so what?

How you gonna tell to P2 Manager which files to export form a 30hours material of a feature length movie?

You need an EDL, and a conform process... or go thru FCP and loose all the blacks below 60...

As I said when FilmRec is engaged the cameras are recording from 0 to 1023 in AVC-Intra and not 60 to 940 which FCP is handling.

So below 60 is another stop of latitude... that we all throw when we are using standard video tools...

If you grade the exported DPX in color you will immediately notice the much richer blacks!...

Good point. Glue Tools will help you conform from your pile of DPXs, but you know that already.

I see the AVC-I material as a transitory medium. It's the DPXs that will then become the masters in this case, why go back to AVC-I?

So you suggesting to export 30 hours in DPX and then conform with Glue tools? 30hours in DPX is 9,5Tbytes at 720p and 24Tbytes that at 1080p... don't mention the weeks of exporting that needed...

No offense but the exporter is not for serious work... Just a glimpse of what we can have in the unknown future...

I don't wont to go back to AVC-I just do the next step...

I edit with AVC-I... when editing is finished I need to go to DPX... How I will do that?

I see what you're getting at and you are absolutely right.

Sorry I got confused there.

The problem Jeremy is:

Can someone communicate that to Panasonic developers?

This feature is a big one, it really unleash the potential of the FilmRec and AVC-I! the EDL export can be with cuts dissolves and simple speed effects... Also an upscale option to 1080p in the exporter (using Lazcos algorithm preferably) for the 720p footage would make the exporter complete...

Probably am just dreaming...
