Rendering DVCPRO HD?
on May 9, 2015 at 4:25:11 am

I need to deliver a DVCPRO HD QuickTime and am editing in Vegas. Other than purchasing the Raylight Encoder, what are my other options--if any--for producing a file in this format?

Thanks,
G

I don't believe there are any other options. DVCPRO HD is supplied by Apple with FCP X or Compressor so one option is to buy a Mac but I'm sure that's not the answer you are looking for (but that's certainly what I did and now I don't have any problem delivering ProRes 422 or DVCPRO HD to my clients). ;-)

Since Vegas Pro doesn't come with the QuickTime DVCPRO HD codec, and there is no free version, you'll need to purchase it from somewhere so your only other option on Windows seems to be Raylight Encoder Pro ($150) at http://dvfilm.com/raylight/EncoderPro

If you want to go the no hassle route, then your best option is
Raylight Encoder Pro, sorry that's not what you want to hear, but
it is what it is!

Thanks for the quick replies guys. I was afraid that Raylight Encoder Pro was the only option but I wanted to check just to be sure.

Yeah, we've all been there.
I'm now remembering that there is also another paid option called
Miraizon DNxHD and ProRes Codecs.

I would be cautious of this product because it produces ProRes files that have problems on a Mac so I wouldn't trust buying it.

If you have or know someone who has Premiere Pro, it can do it for you.

Mike,

I actually do know someone with Premiere. How would you suggest I transfer my cut from Vegas to Premiere without losing quality in the process?


Thanks

I'm also just curious, is there a common alternative or something similar to the DVCPRO HD 1080i60 format that CAN be produced by Vegas?

Michael, I render using the MXF HD EX 1920x1080-60i template from Vegas as I find that the quality loss using this is so small that I don't notice it. Bring that into Premiere and render away :)

FYI, I find that it's a great alternative to the DVCPRO HD 1080i60 format and an MXF file is a LOT smaller than the comparable DVCPRO HD file.

There is always FFMBC - http://code.google.com/p/ffmbc/ of FFMPEG both will convert media to DVCPRO HD. Export to something good like XDCAM 422 or EX and convert that to DVCPRO HD.
