Hi, we have been using the matrox m-peg 2 iframe codec with great success on our pc machines. Does anyone know of similar codec for mac machines?

if you were looking for something to use across both platforms, i would choose either avid's dnxhd codec or quicktime photo-jpeg at a high quality setting (90+).

dnxhd is a constant bit rate codec, similar to matrox's i-frame codec. photo-jpeg is variable bit rate.

both have very good image quality, dnxhd is standard with newer adobe apps, photo-jpeg has been around forever and is a standard part of quicktime. you probably have both installed already.

GoPro CineForm is another good cross-platform mezzanine codec, and the latest release of CC provides native CineForm MOV support.
