Hi OrangeNZ, ffprobe is included in the "static" ffmpeg download and resides in the "bin" folder, so really nothing to do if you have already added say ... X:\ffmpeg\bin to your path variable, if ffmpeg runs, ffprobe will also run. Where X: is any drive letter.
I only added X:\ffmpeg as that is where the exe files ended up. Ok, so extra line of instructions to copy and paste ffprobe to the ffmpeg folder
I wonder if rewrapping would also improve the behaviour of the 6kphoto video stream. Example video file https://goo.gl/CP1jIt
I managed to generate the .mxf files using ffmpeg as specified in GJeffrey's post, but when I try to open or load the .mxf files in Vegas it gives a message,
"None of the files dropped on Vegas Pro could be opened."
I want to be sure if perhaps the version of Vegas I am running is either too old or if there is something I am missing to be able to open/edit these as there are obviously other users of Vegas on here that are able to use them.
I am presently running Vegas Pro 12.0 (Build 367) 64-bit on Windows 10.
Your Vegas version is most probably too old to support long gop AVC in mxf container (not 100% sure, I don't have V12 installed). Would you mind sharing a short video file you converted to confirm whether the problem lies in V12 or not?
Those kind of files can be opened by Vegas 13 and 14.
Not sure what I am doing wrong, I followed the steps to the letter, I get this error: "*" is not recognized as an internal or external command (where "*" goes for all the files downloaded, ffmpeg, ffprobe, bmx etc). Maybe I didn't set the path variables correctly? I also tried with all files in C:ffmpeg folder as described, and also adding as a new variable. I am on Windows 10. Any help would be much appreciated!
Thanks GJeffrey! The re-wrap worked, files play in Edius (downloaded a trial) but don't work in Resolve. Can see the first frame of each clip, then it stutters and shows a video frame here and there but mostly shows the red "media offline" frame. Would be great to color grade the native files in resolve..still waiting for DR14 to come out of beta.Transcoding seems to not work either, (AME, FFMPEG, Edius, and a few others) playback is horrible for some reason.
Magix please make these codecs native to Vegas Pro 14, so users won't have to waste extra time doing this workaround. Especially for cameras like the Panasonic GH5 and JVC -GYLS300, which now does 4K 4:2:2 as well as HD 4:2:2. This feature will make Vegas more reliable and efficient, thank you.
True. And I'd like to add my lengthy debating over which should become a B-cam for my FS7 (A7Rii or GH5) has ended with buying both :) And I can tell you the GH5 - in spite of different color science etc. - intercuts with my FS7 much better (using ACEScc in DR). The A7Rii is going to be used as stills camera mainly, unless I have a need for 3-camera shooting. Not that the A7Rii cannot produce images with high enough IQ - far from that; it's just that its S-log2 looks "thin" and noisier that GH5's V-log...
