by Jonnie Lewis 6 years ago
Ah, just worked it out. If there's an outline where the title is about to be dropped, it'll split the video footage and if there's a solid dark grey block, it'll be overlayed. Hope that's it! Che

Adobe Media Encoder doesn't add pulldown. In the scenario that Chris describes, you will get a frame blending operation, but not the mixing of one filed from one frame with another field from a differ

by Jonnie Lewis 7 years ago

Is buying Final Cut Pro the only way to get the ProRes codec Or by chance is Final Cut Express and Quicktime Pro enough Or by chance is there a secret codec somewhere that you can download
Re: Getting the ProRes Codec
