CineForm support for Sony XDCAM EX

We just did a beta release for Prospect HD and NEO HD, for those wishing to get the best use of their EX cam under Premiere Pro and After Effects. More information here : http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/showthread.php?t=110264

David,

What ever happened with your coming out with a Cineform codec for use on Macs?

Thanks,

Daniel Weber

Help!

David,

I upgraded my NeoHDV to NeoHD right now, and I tried to convert an .MP4 file from my Ex1 to .AVI, but I failed. The HDLink capture log says "Error:AudioDecoder.CocreateInstance(CLSID-CFMP4AudioSourcePush)(0x80040154-Class not registered) in (ConvertGraph.cpp at 1609)".

And converting the MXF file leaves no error massage but the converted .AVI file is just a green screen.

Please help me!

That is why we beta test. Thank you for your report. We are missing a component in the new build, which is easily fixed. Uninstall NEO HD, and download from the same link again, I just refreshed it with the missing component. Re-install and please try again.

P.S. It is now working on my home PC.

Out traveling around the world shooting!!!!

I just asked a question regarding an announcement that you made earlier.

All I asked for was for clarification, not a smart ass answer.

I'm not a PC guy, so I guess I don't need to worry about your products anyway.

I appologize. Sorry my intended light hearted response come across too harsh. It isn't releated to this post which is regarding our PC products.

Our codec has been available on the Mac for sometime, and comes will all our highend tools to allow cross-platform workflows.

Same story with the Prospect HD download. I get exactly the same error.

EDIT: Re-downloaded and everything works fine.

RE-EDIT: Wow!


This is probably the first product I've downloaded that worked instantly! I cannot believe how simple this is. I'm sold.

David,

Thank you for your 'real-time' response.

Now converting .MP4 problem is solved. Maybe you don't support MXF at this moment.. The same problem.

My new problem is that Premiere pro 2.0 do not display the converted .AVI files correctly in the preview window, while window media player correctly plays them.

Edit: I tried to import the AVI files into Vegas Pro 8.0a, but this makes the Vegas shut down... No way to edit the AVI for me now...
Please help me.

Maybe,, Should I open a new ticket at your Cineform support center?

Unfortunately it doesn't work. No EX files in Cineform codec here...

- I downloaded 3.22 Neo,
- installed it over a trial version that still has 6 more days trial period (I do have a previous version of ConnectHD which I can upgrade)
- HDlink syas it is version 3.2.2
- selected a few MXF files
- converted
- HDlink capture log says it is Capture Application version 2.2.5 ?? and Prospect/NEO HD 3.2.2 build 147
- try to play them but the image is completely green
- imported them into Vegas but still the image is green and the audio tracks are longer than the video


Regards,
Erwin

MXF = green report. I have just tested some XDCAM-HD files and some converted EX files to MXF and everything is working fine. Could someone please upload a short MXF file that has this problem.

David, I am curious....

No advantage using MXF over MP4 files. In both cases we remove the wrappers to extract the MPEG2 core and audio stream and convert that data to CineForm AVI. There is an advantage to using the EX's native MP4 files as they can contain the prized 1920x1080 images, whereas the current Sony MXF implementation only supports 1440x1080. This is why we went to trouble of supporting the MP4 files directly.
