what happened to quicktime 10 (December 03, 2016 03:50AM) peter rooney
I'm still fooling around with getting Encore legal h264s for blurays and I've a separate partition with 10.7 installed where I do my encore authoring. So while in 10.7 I opened a qt file and went to export a quick copy and lo and behold all the usual export formats are reduced to about 4 including one for 1080p. OK I thought I'll try that. My footage is 1080 so I exported the file and QT10 converted ithe horizantal res to 1888 ?? Poking around in QT 10 I'm SO glad I've retained a legacy system

I don't think anyone ever took Quicktime X seriously. Also I always use Compressor's Blu-ray option to make .264 files for Encore.

Joe I was happy with compressors h264 until I saw the same file encoded REALLLLLLY SLOWLY with streamclip, which did an outstanding job. But its unusable in encore without transcoding again. As for the hardware solutions we discussed, adequate for everything, including streaming but encore won't accept their 'flavour' of h264. What a puzzle. Not giving up just yet, I love a puzzle.

Really? I never have to re-encode in Encore. I mean it will re-encode if you make a DVD but not a Blu-ray. The only thing that needs rendering are the menus.

What Version of encore are you on. The top level hardware encoders are Matrox, designed for commercial use, the hauppague, elgato are regarded as consumer products. I need a top level quality encode so was looking at the Matrox solutions but online discussions are repleat with examles of encore refusing hardware encodes without transcoding.
Jo are your h264s coming from the elgato ?

My .264 files for Encore (CS6 version) are comping from Apple's own Compressor. Much faster than MPEG Streamclip. This is really the only use I have for Compressor.

Create a new preset and choose H.264 for Blu-ray. The other windows below are my standard settings and they do a great job, but you can finagle the settings to your desires. I have found that dual-pass doesn't make a huge difference and I am quite the stickler for quality. But that dual pass takes a loooong time. The automatic settings means the resolution and frame rate will be identical to the source file (in my case that's usually ProRes 422 HQ master).

thanks Joe, I'd misunderstood you. I thought you meant that you were feeding 264s from the elgato into encore. Your compressor interface looks like a recent version from the FPX suite. I'm still on FCP studio version. I'll do a few encodes with your version and compare quality.
