Sebastian Leitner replied to the topic 'after QuickTime 7' in the forum. 2 years ago

there is LOSSLESSCUT (free) which mimics all the reference features of QT7

any other AVf-based app like QTX or FCPX (compressor) use "samrt rendering" (what adobe calls it). unaltered frames are just copied instead of re-compressed (only if in/out codec is the same of course). that's why prores media is the most fun to work with.

reference movies was a security risk and is not yet supported by AVf – it's more of a gimmick but might return as development progresses over time

Sebastian Leitner replied to the topic 'Compressor 4.2 Unable to submit to queue' in the forum. 4 years ago

fun thing: i can use whatever preset i want within fcp X and put it through compressor but submitting a batch is impossible. so i'm thinking something is broken in terms of the qmaster batvh processing or CPU/GPU implementation because fcp X utilizes the GPU to render to compressor.

of course i've submitted the feedback form already. but this will take a long time. i actually submitted the feedback form a while ago. i've had this issue for months now - on both macs. compressor repair usually fixed it but it stopped helping after the last update. and now even after a fresh clean reinstall nothing :( since i am really desperate i am looking into media encoder now...or sorenson squeeze but it's a lot more expensive. an insight on which is better?

the standard way to do it is by going to file->submit feedback within fcpX

Sebastian Leitner replied to the topic 'DVD authoring' in the forum. 4 years ago

for me good old DVD Studio Pro is still the go-to app for any sophisticated DVD work. if i need very simple DVDs or Blurays i just use what's built-in to fcpX. great quality and the option of easy rate conform if necessary through project settings. subtitles as markers also works well. for me the times of complex menus that look better than the actual content is over. does anybody miss them?

Sebastian Leitner replied to the topic '10.3 issues' in the forum. 4 years ago

has the obnoxious h264-noise bug been mentioned already? whenever you export in any kind of h264 and downscale in the export window, the resulting output gets a nasty static noise overlay. you might need to push gamma a little but it's clearly visible on any bigger screen. it has been discussed and conformed before, currently no fix besides exporting in prores and compressing externally.

Sebastian Leitner replied to the topic 'h264 export adds noise if not fullHD' in the forum. 4 years ago

like many others have confirmed for me, it occurs whenever down-scaling takes place. so yes, if i have a 4K project and export in 1920x1080 it adds noise. i'm talking about the built-in h264 master file or any of the "apple devices", "computer" or "web streaming" presets. also compressor does it, that's why i reverted to v4.2.3 - no added noise there!

Sebastian Leitner replied to the topic 'h264 export adds noise if not fullHD' in the forum. 4 years ago

yes project is 1920x1080 and noise is added whenever scaled down in the h264 export. the noise is definitely added during compression whenever scaling is taking place.

Sebastian Leitner created a new topic ' h264 export adds noise if not fullHD' in the forum. 4 years ago

Just reproduced/ran into the "color noise via export" bug whenever exporting to h264 from either 10.3 or compressor (also occurs with settings like "computer", "apple devices" and such - any h264 component). This should be a completely black slate, it's a gap actually but comes out very noisy (gamma lifted for better visibility). Something is broken in Apple's codecs!
P.S. only happens if NOT exported in 1920x1080 (share menu) and many others have run into that issue as well. can anyone provide any insight?
