Importing DNxHD from Blackmagic Cinema Camera
on Jul 15, 2013 at 1:17:31 pm

Is there a best-practices workflow for using the DNxHD files that Blackmagic Cinema Camera produces?

I know when creating a long/complicated project, AMA is not recommended. Is AMA with native DNxHD files just as good as transcoding to AVID's mxf files for a large project. It would be great to not have to worry about having two sets of files (camera files and mxf files), and only work with the DNxHD that come out of the camera. But I don't know if I would start running into slow rendering problems that way?

Also, the DNxHD files come in a Quicktime wrapper from the camera. If they are quicktime, is there any advantage with setting the camera to DNxHD, rather than ProRes?

Thanks in advance.

Dan S.
