    Transcode Request

    I've got 2 xpress pros and 2 Meridien based systems. The Meridien System are my primary systems, and I mainly use 2:1 media. I'm continually frustrated by the inability of the xpress pro system to use this media. I could buy a Adrenaline to do this conversion, but at this point, my 9000 and Symphony to everything that I need them to do and can't justify the purchase price just to do transcoding.

    At this point I see several possible solutions to this.

    First, just make these meridien resolutions usable in xpress pro like they are in Adrenaline . Digitize would be nice, but I'd be happy with just playback - With or with out a Mojo attached.

    And second, a stand alone application that could transcode media from xpress pros standard resolutions to 2:1 Meridien Resolutions would be acceptable.

    Re: Transcode Request

    Adrenaline systems will transcode media.  Meridien systems do not have that feature.  Considering Avid's trend towards CPU based rather than hardware based editing solutions, suspect it highly unlikely Avid would  add transcode to the version of software you are running.

    Did you even read my post or do you just have a total lack of comprehension???

    In my post I stated that I know Adrenaline can transcode. I know Meridien systems do not have that ability. And at no point did I even ask for Avid to add this ability to Meridien systems. I realize these systems are now the *** step children at Avid.

    I asked for two possible solutions. One for xpress pro to read Meridien Resolutions. Or two, a Stand Alone application. I believe that either one of these are technically "doable" solutions. They may or may not be "doable" from a business stand point. That for Avids marketing people to decide.

    This is a feature request section. There's no reason for you to even reply to this post, unless you have a fix or workaround the the original post. Or unless your looking for the same feature and wish to add your support to the request. Do me a favor and please refrain from replying to posts just to add to your total post count.
