NEWS: MainConcept MovieExport for FCP
Fellow Creative Cow Users,
Saw this and thought you'd all be excited!!
MainConcept MovieExport are versatile encoding plug-ins on Mac OS X for many popular editing applications, such as Final Cut Pro, QuickTime Pro, iMovie, etc. They are available as a Professional and Broadcast version. These new preset-based plug-ins will improve the workflow for users on Mac OS X, allowing them to export their projects using the high-quality MainConcept codecs, that are already known from the powerful Reference transcoder and can also be found in many video-editing applications. They offer renowned presets for Blu-ray Disc, the whole Sony XDCAM portfolio, AVC-Intra, Adobe Flash F4V, Apple iPod, Sony PSP, AVCHD, DVD, J2k DCI and many more predefined presets.
The MainConcept MovieExport module provides direct access to the most important settings via QuickTime export like resolution, video type, frame rate and bitrate. Additionally, it allows you to use all predefined and custom presets from the MainConcept Reference application. It even enables you to import new user-defined presets from Reference into the MovieExport plug-in software for using them in Final Cut Pro, QuickTime Pro, iMovie, etc. The useful Preset Manager allows you to organize them in a convenient way.
Depending on the video codec and format, other supported audio formats are AAC, MPEG audio (Layer 1 & Layer 2), WMA, DV audio and PCM/LPCM, in order to add unprecedented sound experience to your streams.
MainConcept MovieExport uses a quite unusual approach for selecting the preset format for exporting your projects. The base of the preset selection is the file format and container format, resp. So you do not choose the codec (e.g. MPEG-2, H.264/AVC, etc.) or the profile (e.g. XDCAM EX, AVC-Intra, etc.), but the file extensions, such as MXF, MP4, M2TS, M4V, etc. Please click here, to open a table as PDF that gives you an overview what stream type, codec and preset you will find behind these file formats in MovieExport.
Double Feature – MainConcept MovieExport & Reference
MainConcept MovieExport is the perfect companion for the MainConcept Reference application on Mac OS X. It offers the same presets as the renowned transcoder software, and you can even use new user-defined presets made in Reference also in the MovieExport plug-ins on Mac OS X.
