    Re: Sorenson Squeeze codec problems between MainConcept & x264

    No custom exports , could you please do that described  mixdown and sas export for a test, I bet that it´s something wrong with either your project or workflow .

    Thanks Thomas, I always mix down beforing exporting SAS,

    Ok, thanks, it was a long run to get here.

    So we can exclude the workflow and bad files , time to check out other things as quicktime settings / versions and other codec stuff but that´ll be for tomorrow , other with good ideas might also chime in meanwhile.

    Thanks very much for you help today Thomas, as for the set-up I used the PDF Avid HP Z800 configuration guide as a reference for setting up my Z800.

    Re: Sorenson Squeeze codec problems between MainConcept & x264

    My pleasure, I cannot see this as a hardware problem, it have to be codec / quicktime related somehow , I´m doing tons of x264 mp4 exports out of Squeeze using the above described workflow.

    If everything else fails I´ll send you one of my own customized mp4 profiles.

    scocklin,

    To what specifications must your deliverable conform? Also, have you tried exporting QT ref from MC to Squeeze?

    The final is an H.264, 1080p, QT Ref results in the same error.

    Re: Sorenson Squeeze codec problems between MainConcept & x264

    Two things came up in my mind during a good nights sleep.

    First, I have seen the 1:1 command for framerate in the videosettings " reading wrong " once or twice in the past so I always set it to the source framerate.

    Second, as you are a multi platform editor as myself ( I use Mac Drive Pro on PC and Mac formatted external drives ) you surely have your ways to share media between platforms.

    So, how does a PC sas export behave when encoding on the Mac and, contrary, does a Mac sas export encode better on PC .

    Those sas exports, are they all from DNx encoded mixdowns btw .

    add..  and a third idea , what happens if you manually adjust a preset to encode 1 pass cbr instead of the default 2 pass vbr

    Re: Sorenson Squeeze codec problems between MainConcept & x264

    Hi Thomas, Yesterday I went back to what worked using x264, the 1280x720 setting on the youtube preset.  I tried it once again and it worked perfectly, I then adjusted the setting within the same preset to 1920x1080p and the error came up.

    Why would the larger raster on x264 fail

    I also tried youtube webM 1080p and it worked, MainConcept 1080p works.

    Re: Sorenson Squeeze codec problems between MainConcept & x264

    Try Handbreak as long as it's free. It's also an X264 encoder. Even if it isn't a good permanent solution for you, you'll be able to determine if whatever is off is in the CODEC itself or Sorenson's implementaion of it.

    Re: Sorenson Squeeze codec problems between MainConcept & x264

    Ok, great, so we are doing progress, try with some of my suggestions above and maybe also with another 1080 preset when you have the time, happy to send a 1080 preset myself but I think you should first test with another one of the default 1080 presets keeping it unchanged if possible.
