Exporting FCP sequence to AVI - Best Codec?
on Jan 27, 2012 at 2:47:41 am

I have a sequence I need to export (and I'm a producer, not an editor -- uh-oh!) and the client wants a .mov, but also a .avi and .wmv.
No problem with the .mov, but what is the best codec for .avi and .wmv? The original is in pro res 422.
Any help appreciated! Thanks.

AVI is an container so can carry different codecs inside, but the options in a Mac are quite limited.
About WM, you can also find incompatibilities on PCs with the files compressed on Macs (Flip4Mac).
I would rather take the Prores to a PC and make the conversions there.

thanks, but if they don't have FCP and just want something that will play?

You only need QT for Window to play Prores on PCs.

You also need to download and install the free Pro Res codecs for Windows. I don't believe they are included automatically with the QT players.
