    Fastest "Best Quality" Export Out of Avid

    Which MC settings/options give the fastest export while also achieving the following;

    1. uncompressed, lossless or as close to lossless as Media Composer is capable of doing
    2. uses the full capacity of the CPU and all the cores (or as close as MC is capable of)
    3. neither the CODEC nor the Container that comes out of Avid matter because i'll use a different software to change those as needed
    4. other software can convert the CODEC/Container that comes out of MC (e.g. Davinci Resolve, etcetera)
    I just need the fastest way out of Avid because the exported production will be viewed by several folks in several ways (e.g. broadcast TV commercials, youtube, website, dropbox, thumbdrives, etcetera) I know for certain that whatever the best answer is will not involve QuickTime in any way...because quicktime is incapable of fully utilizing the CPU.  I have 18 physical cores and any method involving Quicktime uses ONLY 1 of the 18 cores (QT uses other cores at 15% and one of the cores at near 100%). I really like MC but I desparately hate QT.

    QT Same As Source does not use the Quicktime engine, just copies video and audio into a QT .mov container. If your entire sequence is in the same codec flavor and fully rendered, or if you mixdown your sequence to single codec, it’s just a matter of drive speeds.

    I can't thank you enough...that link you shared is awesome

    yeah, that link is awesome.  it took me 90 minutes total to export a dot MOV through quicktime.  That same sequence took a total of 8 minutes when I did it as follows (thanks to that link)

    1) Un-rendered sequence directly exported as MXF OP1a DNxHUncompressed (6 minutes)

    2) then take that file and export it to MP4/H.264 via Davinci Resolve 16 free version (2 minutes)

    Resolve will give you many options with many adjustable paramenters, it's just exactly what I needed so I can send it to many  users via various formats...the final one though will be sent to the media buyer straight out of MC as MXF DNxHUncompressed

    yeah, from 90 minutes down to 8 minutes total

    Are you shooting and capuring as uncompressed? and editing uncompressed?

    If not delivering uncompressed is a waste. No broadcaster wants uncompressed.

    I shoot *R3D and edit AMA linked. But I receive other formats as well.  The media buyer prefers DNxUncompressed. The media buyer converts to different things as needed. I also must convert to a variety of options....to send to an assortment of users.

     

    So far the above OP1a route is the fastest, right?
