Same as source export with different codects on timeline
on Apr 25, 2020 at 7:53:51 pm


so far I've often used the Same as source option when exporting from Avid without any problems, even if the timeline contained various codecs (but always DNxHD), for example DNxHD 36, DNxHD120 and DNxHD185x. It resultet in faster export and produces the same result as if I exported it using Custom Settings to export to DNxHD 185x.

Untill now I thought that Same as source export used the highest resolution that was used in the timeline and exported it in that resolution, while transcoding other resolutions to the highest resolution. But I recently read somewhere that it actually produces a file that contains multiple codecs (DNxHD 36, DNxHD 120 and DNxHD 185x), while being laballed as DNxHD 185x.

It was a very old post, but I'm kind of worried now and I'm wondering whether it is true. So, how does Same as Source export actually work?

Best regards
