I have been looking forward to this update, here is my results 😊
Using the updated Windows Max Exporter v184.108.40.206. I Tested the Exported files in the Video Editors I currently use.
- Cyberlink PowerDirector v17 - Both HEVC and h.264 decode as 360 files, and can be edited as required.
- VEGAS Pro 17 - h.264 decoded as expected once the project properties were defined correctly. HEVC - No success, Could not decode as no info was displayed on the file type. (Could be software related?)
For info I use a NVIDIA RTX2060 GPU with Studio Driver v441.28.
Before this update I experimented by importing the CineForm format into Handbrake and Re-Encoded the files into HEVC retaining the 5.6k Resolution. The resulting files were Imported into PowerDirector v17 which worked fine but needed shadow files enabled (reduced resolution) during editing. VEGAS Pro v17, although imported were not usable. The files could also be played in Windows 10 "Film & TV" App as 360 files smoothly.
Why is there no option for 5.6k Resolution output for HEVC?, I understand there is a limit of 4k on h.264 due to band width limitations.
I purchased the camera for a holiday in the new year, so am trying to ratify the workflow before editing loads of footage.
I now can't import converted video files using the Cineform codec into Adobe Premiere. Well, I can import to Adobe Premiere but only audio. Premiere doesn't recognize the Cineform codec. Please fix!
