DPX2CF - difficulty converting files

David,

I am attempting to convert 4096x2304 DPX files to CFHDAVI files using DPX2CF on my computer which had Prospect 4K installed.

I have moved the DPX2CF.exe utility from its installed location into my C:\Windows\System32 directory.

From the directory where the my DPX files are located, I type:

dpx2cf s:\red\dpx\Test 1[1].4096x2304\ 014711.dpx s:\output\014711.avi f=24.

to which I get the following:

"'dpx2cf' is not recognized as an internal or external command..."

I'm certain I am engaged in some form of idiocy but any help you could offer would be greatly appreciated.

Also if I am able to get this to convert, how do I batch convert a folder full of DPX files?

Many thanks...

Somehow your execute path is weird.

From a DOS Prompt type

set path

This will show where your system looks for executables (and C:\WINDOWS\system32 should be listed.)

dpx2cf

Alone this should tell you some usage info.

Note: Never have spaces in paths and filename or you will be in for a headache. To deal with spaces in paths you will have to add quotes like this
dpx2cf "s:\red\dpx\Test 1[1].4096x2304\*.dpx" s:\output\Test1[1].avi f=24

the 014711 was replaces with '*', a wild card to convert all the DPXs in that path to a single AVI.
