Exporting to Avid Uncompressed Codec
on Jul 18, 2011 at 8:25:41 am

Hi everyone, I'm trying to export some files to a client who is asking for "QT files to use Avid Uncompressed codec, RGB, 1920 x 1080 progressive" and I am using FCP. I downloaded the Avid codecs from their website but get an error message whenever I try to use them in both FCP and Compressor. I've tried mixing and matching lots of different options but I get an error immediately every time I try to export/compress. Here are my settings when using Compressor with the Avid codec:

Name: Avid Meridien Uncompressed
Description: No description
File Extension: mov
Estimated size: unknown
Video Encoder
Format: QT
Width: 1920
Height: 1080
Pixel aspect ratio: Square
Crop: None
Padding: None
Frame rate: (100% of source)
Frame Controls: Automatically selected: Off
Codec Type: Avid Meridien Uncompressed
Multi-pass: Off, frame reorder: Off
Pixel depth: 32
Spatial quality: 100
Min. Spatial quality: 0
Temporal quality: 0
Min. temporal quality: 0

Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated.

don't use Meridien for HD.

Use Avid 1:1x if you want uncompressed.
