Convert Cineform to Divx possible?

Captured to Cineform 2k.

Trying to export directly from After Effects CS3 8.02 -> Divx makes AE crash.

Exporting to Cineform from AE and the try and convert the .AVI-file with Divx Converter: Divx says "Invalid Video Stream"


How can I best convert/export a Cineform project to Divx?


Thanks!

You could try exporting the AE project to a cineform avi file, and then convert that to divx with whatever you have handy - Premiere, Virtualdub, etc.

I've tried that:

"Exporting to Cineform from AE and the try and convert the .AVI-file with Divx Converter: Divx says "Invalid Video Stream""

I haven't tried taking the AVI into Premiere, but i seriously doubt it helps since AE crashes when trying just that and that Divx Converter doesn't recognize the stream.


Other ideas?

If your plain CHD avi files are crashing other applications, I would suggest deinstalling/reinstalling Prospect before you proceed further. (Unless there's some sort of 10-bit vs 8-bit issue going on...?)

It is obvious that the most recent builds of Prospect are having crashing problems with third applications and the avi CF files.
I am experiencing that issue with the TMPGENC software too. My work around so far is converting with HD link the avi file to mov. Then your file should work.

Jose / Iam workink with Prospect 3.2.1 build 145.

I prefer working with the secondlast updates on all my software, just in case
there's a glitch in the latest version.

Otherwise i will check on the forum feedback of latest update loaders before installing the latest build.

There you go.
I was an Aspect Hd user at that time so I don't have a back up of that version.

I've tried converting CF Avi -> Mov and then convert that, same issues.

I'll give TMPG a go and post the results.


Thanks!

What's the latest on this?

I also stumbled with Cineform to DivX conversion, Divx Converte gives "Invalid Video Stream" error and cannot proceed.

How to fix this?

Actually, never mind - TMPGEnc 4 Express does wonderful DivX video encoding out of Cineform files.
