Pro Rez Codec with Jitter

February 26, 2008 | 2:06 pm

Hi!
I am working in a project with Max/Msp/Jitter using HD videos from a super16mm camera. I wander if it’s possible to compress the videos with this Final Cut’s codec "Pro Rez" and run the videos under Jitter.
Thanks
David

This should be possible, provided you are running under OS X, and have
FCP installed on your performance rig, or have the Pro Res codec
manually installed to /Library/Quicktime/. Jitter will happily play
any QT movie that QT can play, as long as you have the codecs installed.

Is there any particular reason you want to go with Pro Res?

ive done some tests and did not notice any particular performance
benefits from running it. Its quite CPU intensive even for decode,
MJpeg B beats it, and is (almost) as visually lossless (even reg Pro
Res, not just HQ), and has more quality control vs bandwidth/datarate
options.
