XDCAM 422 codec - output from AVID
on Apr 8, 2016 at 1:37:11 pm

Hoping for some quick assistance.

I have a client who's requested: XDCam 422 codec (QT wrapper, .mov extension) for delivery.
I'm on MC 8 (using PC).
I don't see that as an export settings option. Am I missing anything? Or do I need to download a codec ? And, if so, from where?

thanks a ton

I'm running 8.5.1 on a Mac...but still, you don't have XDCAM listed in the Compression types?

I'm running on a PC and don't have that export option.
Is it possible to download those from somewhere?

XDCAM 422 with MOV wrapper is mac-only.

Ask them if an MXF file is acceptable instead. It probably is.

Just be aware that Avid will split out the XDCAM422 MXF with 8 discrete audio channels, exactly like your first 8 channels on your timeline (stereo tracks don't count - you have to split them into dual mono). So you'll need create mixdowns and organize the tracks as per your broadcasters specs first.
