    DNxHD option not showing up for export on MC First

    Hi there,

    I'm trying to help someone export/publish a Quicktime wrapper DNxHD codec file on MC First.  I have noticed on a MC First tutorial video that the option should be in the codec drop down menu next to H.264, but it is not showing up (the H.264 is the only coedec that shows up).  Any suggestions?  Does DNxHD not work on the SD footage export?  We need the final file to be a 1080i SD NTSC mov file.  Maybe this is beyond the scope of MC First?


    The original footage before being imported is 720x486 ProResHQ 1080i and the MC First auto created timeline based on the footage is 720x496 SD 48k 24bit audio, and the export works fine in H.264.  All exports are to the local drive.


    Come to think of it, I'm not really sure why it made a publish size of 720x496 from the 720x486 SD footage?



    The MC First is version 8.9.2

    Using Codecs PE 2.7.4  (I believe contains DNxHD)

    On a MAC PRO 5,1 Tower with The FCP7 Pro Codecs installed as well.

    Re: DNxHD option not showing up for export on MC First

    We need to clarify some terms here. SD is standard video, e.g. 720x480 or 720x486 pixels. HD is 720x1280 or 1080x1920. There is no such thing as 1080i SD. What you're importing from ProRes is SD and your project is set to SD. I don't have MCF currently installed, so I can't check to see of the Quicktime project settings allow for DNxHD for SD material.

    I suspect the size of 720x496 is actually a typo in the label.
