Cutting the Drama Out of Blu-ray Production
Might have a project upcoming where client is supplying encodes created in Adobe Media Encoder - are these compliant for replication or would I better off getting the Quicktime files and re-encoding?
As the Adobe doesn't appear to be listed on Sony's list of approved encoders.
Hi Steve, I do not have much experience with Adobe Media Encoder, but the encoded video files MUST be Blu-ray compliant. Best to make sure the encoder states that it can encode to BD compliancy.
If you are not sure be careful. DSA will NOT do a full BD compliancy check when you import. You may not find out that a stream is not compliant until the Compile/mux stage or even the verification stage at the replication facility.
if your customer create the encodes with adobe media encoder CC, then they are compliant.
The Adobe Media Encocer CC has Blu-ray templates for .m2v and .h264 compliant streams.
When using them in DoStudio you must open the file input dialog and use the "use all files" option.
DoStudio doesn´t see the .m4v Files by Standard, but will compile them with no problems.
