Kona at home
on Nov 25, 2006 at 4:59:24 pm


This is a simple question but I cant find the answer.
I have a 1920 x1080 shot on firewire drive, it is around 5GB that I need to compress to H264 or WM9 mantaining 1920x1080 res but getitng the shot down in size.

When I open the file in QT7pro it is white. The audio plays fine. Edit sytem in use was Mac FCP and Kona. After talking to the editor looks like he has given me a Kona file

I need to compress this ASAP but I am not near an edit suite Im at home and it is a weekend.
Is their a software app that can read and compress Kona to H264 or WM9?
Or something I can do with QT7 to make it read Kona?

cheers

No, there isn't a Kona codec except the 2Vuy which is used for CineWave file playback. Kona uses the Apple codecs for capture / output.

It's probably HDV, DVCPro HD or the Apple 8 or 10bit uncompressed codecs. Depending on which version of FCP you own, you may or may not have those codecs installed on your machine.

Thanks Walter,
QT 7 movie info says that it is 1920x1080 10 bit uncompressed.

Unfortunatly I dont have FCP at home, but would be prepared to buy it tonight if it will solve the problem.

QT7 points me to a plug ins page at Apple. I can't figure out which one would work.
Shame that you can output a file from FCP that QT7pro cant play.

[Michael Brennan] "QT 7 movie info says that it is 1920x1080 10 bit uncompressed."

Then you need the Apple 10bit Uncompressed Codec which is installed with FCP.

You can output a file that QT 7 can play, you just don't have the proper codec. Don't blame the application, you just don't have the right codecs since you don't own FCP.

Tell the editor to export an H.264 for you since that's all it sounds like you need.
