NEO 2K ingest and Prospect HD

David, we're thinking of getting the NEO 2K for both field capture testing with a RIO mulie, and for outputing some stuff from Digital Juice and AE with alpha layers for using in PP CS3 wtih Prospect HD.

Our question is, does Prospect HD work with the compressed alpha channel output from NEO 2K? It seems silly to spend the extra $$ for it if it doesn't.

NEO 2K and Prospect 2K support 4:4:4:4 encoding (see the thread posted earlier this month about alpha channels and digital juice). Also, I think you can download a demo and try it before you spend the money. Aspect HD does not support an alpha channel.

Best,
Christopher

I should have titled this thread "NEO 2K OUTPUT..." sorry.

Please reread my question Christopher. We already use Prospect HD (not 2K) and are wanting to know if it will "recognize" the compressed alpha channels if we make them with NEO 2K. I know Prospect HD does not do alpha channel compression, but that is not our question.

Yes, Prospect HD will decode the alpha channels of NEO 2K. We do see this as a prefectly reasonable workflow.

We'll be downloading it then, thanks! We needed something for field testing ingest with the RIO mulie (that doesn't expire so fast), but it's mostly for outputting AE stuff on another workstation. Loren will be calling David T. later today (and maybe you too for some techie type info)...
