ARRIRAW Converter CMD and Quicktime?

Fri Nov 16, 2018 9:47 am

Hello,

I would very much like to convert a MXF file to a quicktime mov using the ARC_CMD but if i specify "QuickTime" as the output format it fails to recognize it. However I see that it is possible in the ARRIRAW Converter GUI.

Is Quicktime not available on the CMD or is there something I am doing wrong?

Thanks in advance.

Hey Andrea,

I'm sorry, ProRes rendering is not available on ARC CMD.

The “format” parameter determines the output file format and accepts the following values: tif, tiff, dpx, dpx_16bit, dpx_16bit_bgr, cineon, jpg, jpeg, exr, or openexr. It must be set.

Hi Jan,

Thank you for the clarification. Are you aware of anyway to automate the conversion using other tools? I know FFMPEG is not an option using the standard transcoding procedures.

I am simply trying to create a quick proxy video of the MXF file, so any format would do. The CMD seems to only create still images, unless I am misunderstanding something.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Kind regards

Dear Andrea,

ffmpeg might not be THE preferred method - but a possible way to go I guess.
I'm not commandline-nerdy enough to know how that works but I guess one can make one script accept the output of another...

Best,
