Video Codecs - Supported Applications
We have chosen the Apple ProRes®, Avid DNxHD® and Avid DNxHR+ codecs as our main video codecs since they are visually lossless, as well as being edit-ready formats. The H.265 (HEVC) codec is also available as an optional upgrade, and provides a highly efficient compressed codec option. For more information refer to the H.265 (HEVC) is a highly efficient compressed codec that combines excellent image quality with a small file size, which makes it ideal for streaming and for the sharing of files. It is also well suited to situations where there is no time or budget for color grading, as you can ‘bake in’ Rec. 709 or a custom LUT to the file so that you can share files immediately at the end of a shoot. section.
Generally speaking, all major non linear editing applications support Apple ProRes and Avid DNxHD/DNxHR, and most have support H.265 (HEVC). Applications need to support these codecs inside a .MOV wrapper.
Please refer to the support documentation for your software for compatibility, especially with 10 Bit 4:2:2 H.265.
