    Converting a DNx Mov to a pre-UME version on Mojave.

    With my new Mac being Mojave only I am forced to export Quicktimes that require the new codec pack. 

    How can I make a conversion (posibly using external software) to the older codec format so my clients can use my files? 

    The conversion must again happen on my Mojave system.

    Is this posssible?

    Re: Converting a DNx Mov to a pre-UME version on Mojave.

    This question makes me wonder a couple of things.  I know that Adobe products have been using the new naming system for DNx files.  But are they using the new codec pac?  



    Do other video products (Resolve for example) need to integrate this new codec pac?  If so have they?

    Or is this new codec just the renaming scheme that some of them have already been using?

    It feels like this COULD be a big mess.  Or not one at all.  Would love to have an official explanation from Avid.

    But to your question James, I am curious if you have tested with your clients whether these "new" codecs are working for them or whether you are just being proactive.

    It's a mixed bag.

    Things like ff.works and the Optimus media player can read them.

    Resolve/Fusion is fine.

     

    But the key software, After Effects and Nuke do not read them. That's the kicker.

    I think for MacOS Mojave you can install the 32bit extra's download from Avid giving QuickTime support. How about doing a mixdown to your required DNx and exporting Same As Source. The What's New for 2020 does say that MOV DNx exports using UME will use the new codec. Maybe SAS won't. This might be a temporary fix until your clients and other software get up to date with the new codec.
