Broadcast Quality mpeg2 - Software to transcode?
on Feb 14, 2012 at 8:04:44 pm

Hi,
I was wondering if anyone could tell me what software out there can transcode from quicktime ProRes to high bitrate mpeg2 described below?

I have Final Cut Studio 2 suite and Adobe CS3 suite. I looked at the Apple compressor 4 manual, but all the settings for mpeg 2 are the same as the old one and only go up to 40mbps for Mpeg2. Anyone using newer CS5 to do this?

I'd look at one of Telestream's stand-alone software products to transcode for delivery.

Someone else recently told me to checkout their Episode software. I was kinda hoping there were some other options out there, but it seems like this is the software for it.

Thanks.

Yeah, it's pricey, but Episode Pro is like the Rosetta Stone of codecs.
