Transcode PIX-E5 4K ProRes to Avid MC 1080p DNxHD codec

Compact and powerful, the Video Devices PIX-E5 5" 4K Recording Video Monitor can record DCI 4K an UHD 4K (4096 x 2160) video over HDMI and 6G-SDI to SpeedDrive SSDs in the Apple ProRes format at frame rates up to 30 fps. However, compatibility issue is quite common in the video world, which is also true to the stunning 4K Prores codec captured by PIX-E5.

Searching online, some guys mentioned ProRes workflow on Media Composer. Yes, ProRes can be used in Avid Media Composer with AMA. As far as I know things are a little more complicated with ProRes. Actually, it's too long for AMA to be effective I tried it. Becides, AMA linking to the ProRes QT files will not allow for the clips to be consolidated. Something else, there's actually no way to edit a 4K project natively with Avid MC. In most cases, editing 4K in Avid Media Composer is very taxing on your computer. In order to work PIX-E5 4K Prores footage in Avid MC smoothly, a better way is to transcode 4K ProRes to a more "edit" friendly codec- DNxHD(1080p would be the best settings).

Can DJI Phantom 4 4K be played on iPad Pro/Air 2/Mini 4?

The Phantom 4 is the best consumer drone that DJI has released to date. It takes everything you may loved about the Phantom 3 Professional and improves upon it. Well, many DJI users will admit to have found DJI 4K video difficult to drop or transfer into iPad Pro/Air/Mini/4/3/2 for purposes of playing. Below is the easy answer to copy DJI Phantom 4 4K to iPad for playback. If you have the similar demand, read on.



Although the drone streams 720p HD footage back to a smartphone or tablet attached to the remote control from the sky, the Retina HD display of iPad Air 2 or iPad Pro can't hold or play 4K videos easily.

However, the 4K videos required to be play on at least 3840×2160 (16:9) or 4096×2160 (17:9) resolution screen. Therefore, the large file size from DJI Phantom 4 (Pro) is not supported well by iPad.

Worse still, in order to successfully add 4K MP4 movie files from Phantom 4 to iTunes and transfer MP4 to iPad Pro/Air/Mini/4/3/2, your MP4 video shall meet the following specs:

*MPEG-4 video up to 2.5 Mbps, 640 by 480 pixels, 30 frames per second, Simple Profile with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps per channel, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats.

If your MP4 files from Phantom 4 does not meet the requirement, your iPad will refuse to open and play. 

To achieve your goal, there is no other solution but you will need a Mac 4K video converter to convert Phantom 4 4K video to iPad format and downscale the file size by lowering the bitrate from 10Mbps to 160 Kbps, so that you can play DJI Phantom 4 (Pro) 4K on iPad Pro/Air/Mini/4/3/2 smoothly.

[2017] 5 Best H.265/HEVC Video Converters for PC/Mac

Thanks to today's ultra high definition video and increasing complex demands for video editing, a new video format has risen to the throne, called H.265. H.265 is a kind of high quality video codec using HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding) as the video compression standard. Playing, editing and streaming H.265 movies from PC would be fantastic, however, not all the mainstream devices have up-to-date capability to support this new H.265/HEVC codec, which requires converting H.265 to H.264, MPEG-4, etc with a best H.265 video converter for codec incompatibility issues. If you are searching for a truly costless, effective and functionally H.265 converting tool, keep reading...



H.265 vs H.264

High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC), also known as H.265, is the successor of H.264 to be the new video compression standard. Compared with H.264/AVC, H.265 keeps some of the original technologies, while improving some relevant techniques to provide twice the compression efficiency of the previous standard, H.264/AVC. 

Reviews of the Best H.265/HEVC Video Converter for Win/Mac

Decode H.265

H.265 will be the codec of the future and will possibly take the place of H.264 one day. In that case, many H.265 videos or media files won't be playable with the regular player apps, and some players claim to be the best H.265 player but indeed they are not working when the users trying to playback H.265 files. Luckily, with the third party H.265 converter tool available, making use of HEVC video becomes simple and easy. 

Encode H.265

Why should you care about converting to H.265 for your video files? Several very important reasons — and the most important is that you soon won't have much choice. The H.265 format, often called HEVC (high efficiency video coding), is being adopted as the new standard, particularly at the commercial level, and video creators/editors are slowly but surely being required to use it — especially for a little thing called 4K video.

However, moving from H.264 (or possibly MPEG-2) to HEVC comes with a lot of other advantages, too. This codec follows the same basic compression rules as its predecessors, but offers many more modes for intra prediction, support for greater prediction size, and fuller support for transforming. It also provides more customization for motion estimation blocks and a better in-look filter. 

You can take a look at more of the changes here, but it's a significant overall upgrade, particularly for technical video editors. If you decide to spring for x265, take a look at the latest tools when you update. The software upgrade will include UHDcode, a very handy HEVC decoder that you can use to render video frames in real time quickly and reliably. After test in deepth, here we like to pick up the best Windows or Mac H.265/HEVC converters for your options as below. 

Review of H.265 Video Converter– No.1 Dimo Video Converter Ultimate

This H.265 Video Converter is also available to customize the output resolutions to any size the users want. For Mac users, turn to Dimo Video Converter Ultimate for Mac (OS Sierra supported).

If you have Windows, you can also get support for QuickSync video.

Review of H.265 Video Converter– No.3 VideoLAN 

x265 from VideoLAN is a free software library and application for encoding video streams into the H.265/MPEG-H HEVC compression format, and is released under the terms of the GNU GPL. It is very fast software that will take minimal time to convert video while high quality is guaranteed after conversion.
