frame flex workflow
on Oct 13, 2015 at 10:46:38 am

I am about to start assisting on a feature that is framed for 2:40, being shot with a 4x3 sensor but not anamorphic. We are working on 16x 9 monitors.

The options I have been given are 1920x1080 dnx mxf that are pillar boxed,
or use frame flex.

I have never used frame flex and my research seems to show that its AMA based. I am not keen on having my editor cut with AMA, I like the stability of mxf dnx.

Am I right in saying if I want mxf dnx files I need to use frame flex to cut out a 16x9 portion of the image and transcode.
If the editor wants to see the whole image, maybe to or rack/ re-position the image, I have to go back to the ama, resize, transcode and relink?

has anyone else another suggested workflow?

Thanks in advance
