Avid Delivers Video Editing Workflows with ProRes RAW and DNx Codecs
ProRes is a high-performance editing codec that provides multistream, high-quality images and low complexity for premium real-time editing. The codec, which will be available to Media Composer users on Windows, supports frame sizes ranging from SD and HD to 2K, 4K, and beyond at full resolution with stunning image-quality preservation and reduced storage rates.
In addition, Media Composer for macOS and Windows, which was completely redesigned for 2019, also will add native support for ProRes RAW. ProRes RAW applies ProRes compression to the raw data from a camera sensor to provide the flexibility of RAW video with the performance of ProRes for editing today’s highest-resolution outputs.
