Hi Paul. I am guessing you are doing something wrong. The prores files I exported are not distinguishable from the source file.

Interesting Aaron I have tried a few other shoots I did with the Nano and with out the Nano and the clips in Prores HQ are very noisy.

Are you exporting the raw clips directly with Compressor or from the timeline in FCP. Also, I solved the FCP XML to Premiere issue too. Premiere is expecting an older XML format so it will choke on new XML format. I have a fix for this.

I imported the clips to FC then put them on a Prores HQ timeline with no render needed. Then I export them out from the FC timeline.

But now I am sending the client MXF from the raw clips and I will buy them the plug in since it has to go Priority in 10 min. But figuring this out so next time I can use XML or other options works for me.

I tried this again right now. I can't see the difference between the original clip and the prores. Can you shoot a short clip and post both versions. I can post my clips you if like.

Aaron,

I was on a shoot all day and again tomorrow. Monday I should be able to post the same clip from both but they will be downgraded for the web. If it still shows well it will at least make my point at what I am seeing.

Thanks for the help.

Paul, you can upload the clips directly to my server. There's terrabytes of storage there. You may want to shoot a short clip, maybe 10 seconds or so. Then the files size of the original and the ProRes will be pretty small.

Compressing them for the web really won't help me understand what's going wrong.

Excellent I have a short clip and maybe tomorrow I will have a chance if not Monday will work. Out the door now.

Did you send my your FTP once before? I will see if I still have it or deleted it.

Thanks Aaron.

Careful in purchasing the plug-in from Main Concept.

You have to make sure they send you the correct link or you will end up paying full price.

Dan,

Astrid helped me out. The problem is they do not have a options for buying with the discount. So they are in the process of adding that options. The store is run by a different company.

Astrid did a great job helping me.

And I have not heard from the client so no news is good news when it comes to how the plug-in works.

Paul. I see what you mean. That ProRes422 file is unacceptable. I'm not sure what noise you're talking about but the jaggies on the building edges are enough for me to reject them.

I'm looking into what might be causing this now.
