Procoder 3 (Canopus/Grass Valley) and DVDit Pro HD


planetweckesser

Question

Procoder 3 is finally shipping (but not on the Canopus website yet) - they indicated there were no blu-ray presets in the software but are reserching and will later post a "preset file" for blu-ray that one can download from the Canopus site. I should receive my copy of Procoder 3 tomorrow and will let you know how it works with DVDit Pro HD. I sent them the links as posted in SS Scott's pinned topic so they can speed up their "research".

They do have an HD preset and with some manipulation you can set it exactly like the presets as posted on other area of this forum - HOWEVER - using these presets I have tried twice now and can't get a file than won't go through DVDit Pro HD without a "video encoding" step. Add to this encoding times of 9 1/2 hours for "mastering quality) and 8 1/2 hours for "highest quality" settings (69 minute project) and this is on a dual core, dual xeon, 3.0gh workstation with 3 TB hardware video raid 0. QUITE DISAPPOINTING. All this hype about grid encoding and when you get down to it it is only for producing .m2t files - whoopee!! Not very useful for us who want to do blu-ray authoring.

Will PC3 open PC2 template files? Just in case you did change something?
