I have an SD program that is prores and the footage was captured through an AJA LHI card. I would like to export that program through the MAC firewire to a DVD recorder. Is this possible? If so, what is the best workflow? I have tried and get all kinds of dialogue that doesn't seem to work.
I am thinking that the prores codec does not play well with firewire.
This is not related to ProRes, but most likely to your DVD Recorder. As far as I know nearly all DVD recorders with FireWire inputs do support a protocol that is slightly different from the protocol decks or cameras are using, and they therefore do not work correctly with edit systems.
One thing you could try, though, is to set your Acquire media codec to DV, since this decides what format the FireWire output will try to play out. Even if most of your material on the timeline is ProRes footage, if you set the acquire codec to DV the system will play DV via FireWire.
