  1. I need to create flv files from a final cut pro project.

    FFMpegX creates them fine if I create a quicktime using DV compression but the quality is not good enough for final use on the clients website (I think this is because the quicktime with DV compression is soft compared to an uncompressed quicktime)

    When I create an uncompressed 8 bit 4:2:2 quicktime, using compressor, which looks much crisper FFmpegX cannot create a FLV from it, log report below.

    This is with invert mapping selected in the audio tab, if I don't select invert mapping the process fails (See below)

    Any ideas, or does FFmpeg X just not support uncompressed 4:2:2 quicktimes?

    Thanks in advance for any feed back.

    Try the 'Decode with QT' checkbox in the Options tab. That enables ffmpegX to read QuickTime files that ffmpeg may not work well with.

  3. With decode with QT selected it creates a 0KB file in less than a second

    This is the progress log

  5. Originallt donw with invert mapping selected.

    If Decode with QT still produces the "Unsupported codec"-error, then "Uncompressed 8-bit 4:2:2" isn't the right codec for this workflow.

    I got working results with the supposedly lossless "Animation" codec, tho'.
    I don't have Compressor, so can't do tests with this "Uncompressed 8-bit 4:2:2" you speak of.

  7. Thanks.

    Do you know of a high quality codec I can use that will produce crisp FLV's?

    If I use a DV based codec the FLV looks soft, the colours loose thier punch, and there are very obvious compression artifacts. I think this is becase the DV based quicktime exported from FCP is not as good as the uncompressed 4:2:2.

    Have you had a look at my other post re: strange colours on an AVI based FLV?

    Any ideas on that?
