Apple Compressor for JPEG2000 MXF -> ProRes HQ?
on Oct 7, 2015 at 7:40:29 pm

I am working on a digitization project involving a few hundred BetaSP & Digibeta tapes, and am planning to go to JPEG2000 lossless in an MXF wrapper for the archive master, and then generate ProRes HQ access masters for the video production team's daily use.

Will the current Compressor 4 meet my needs for the MXF to Quicktime ProRes transcode? Are there any quality concerns with the process? Would I be better served using a different program? Thank you!

Nope. Sorry, Compressor doesn't recognize the MXF wrapper.

[Matthew Fisher] "Would I be better served using a different program?"

Why are you using an MXF wrapper?

The app I though might work for this won't, because it doesn't work with the JPEG2000 format.

They're archival masters, MXF JPEG2000 is fairly common.

OK. I didn't know that. So, that's an archive format...how does one access it? Avid MIGHT, as MXF is the format it works with, but JPEG2000 isn't a format it uses, so I guess it can access it and transcode. Adobe Premiere works with just about anything, so it might work with this. But FCP doesn't...and Compressor doesn't convert MXF files...EditReady won't convert it to Quicktime. Ask the company that does this archive...how do people convert this to an editable format?

I reached out to Adobe and seems that the most recent version of Media Encoder will support MXF JPEG2000, thank you for your help.

Hi Matthew,

Give me a call when you have a chance. I noted your videotape migration project. It is similar to several migration projects we have done for broadcast and corporate clients.

I would be happy to share the workflow with you.
