    DNxHD MXF 1080p export

    Hello forum users,

     

    I need to export my timeline (1080p23.976, no AMA) with DNxHD codec in MXF container. I'm Mac user, so on a Mac I'd export it as QT .mov with DNxHD inside, but what are my options on Windows?

     

    Also, on both platforms, can I export an MXF/DNxHD file directly from timeline? XDCAM MXF isn't an option.

     

    I tried to search forum first, but haven't found a finite answer yet.

     

     

    Thank you.

    I think that you can only do this using Interplay Transfer. Altough this thread suggests another solution is available.

    I'm confused.

    You say you need MXF container, but at the same time, you say that on the Mac, you export DNxHD in MOV container, as if that is an acceptable solution.

    If that's acceptable for you on the Mac, why can't you do the same on Windows?

    Sorry, my bad. I should have worded my problem more precisely.

     

    While I can export to QT mov, this is not a straight-forward solution, because I still need to re-encode it in Adobe Media Encoder CC to get MXF.  

     

    And for unknown reason I can't see DNxHD codecs while I'm trying to export QT mov on Windows machine. Is it normal, or I'm missing something? 

     

    So, my idea was like that, if Adobe app can do it, then Avid app can do this too, right?  Even Premiere Pro can export right from timeline directly to DNxHD MXF.

    If your sequence is already in DNxHD, you would not need to choose the codec, but rather do a Same As Source export. If you use Quicktime Custom settings, you are using the Quicktime Engine to recompress to another codec, actually causing an unnecessary generation of DNxHD recompression.

    Another thought: are you sure Adobe lets you export MXF as Op1A or is it actually Open Atom?

    If you're just after Open Atom, you could do a Video Mixdown in Media Composer, then Reveal that file, and that is your MXF export. But it won't include sound.

    Thank you! I really forgot about Same as Source option. Which is ok for imported media, but, I suppose, won't work for AMA, right?

     

    Adobe exports MXF Op1A. Here's screenshot:
