    Idea [I] Important |MC 2020.4 | how DNxHD codec MOV files are created!!!!!

    Media Composer 2020.4 contains changes to how DNxHD codec MOV files are created.

    Per the What’s New Document, to make these files compatible with 3rd party applications as well as previous Media Composer versions a new Avid Codecs package needs to be installed on machines not running Media Composer 2020.4.

    These new Avid Codecs are available on the Download Center.

    From the What’s New document:

    It also means that DNxHD MOV files created using UME will require an updated QuickTime PE/LE codec

    package in order to be supported by previous versions of Media Composer and 3rd Party products.

    This is something that everyone needs to be very aware of, so they can handle questions about backward compatibility.

    Thanks JC Bond for pointing this important note out.

    I've never been 100% certain - do you need to install LE codecs when MC and PE codecs are already present for full 3rd party software support Marianna?

    Re: Important |MC 2020.4 | how DNxHD codec MOV files are created!!!!!

    Question: if I have a project started on 2019.12 (therefore with "old" DNxHD mxf files), and I move it to 2020.4, will I get into trouble when I export "Same-as-source" since the mxf and the codecs will be a mismatch?

    Re: Important |MC 2020.4 | how DNxHD codec MOV files are created!!!!!

    Also I wanted to ask. We export DNXHD 220 10 bit files from MC 2018 to a TV network who processes that file through their QC system and sends for air, FOX Sports. If I had 2020.4 and exported a DNXHD 220 10 bit quicktime does that mean they wouldn't able to even read it (since they might be on some legacy system that reads DNXHD 220 and sends it for air?)

    PE codec package is all you need.
