I have been able to convert the file to a .mov file in DNxHD using FFmpeg, but then Avid Xpress has to transcode it once again into DVCHDPRO. I could elimnate that step if I could go directly to DNxHD in a MXF wrapper. My attempts to do that with FFmpeg so far have not been successful. Can FFmpeg do this and what are the parameters I should use?
I actually figured this out on my own. I used the broadcast version of ffpmeg called ffmbc using the following parameters:
This does NOT create an MXF file, but Avid Xpress Pro recognizes the DNxHD format and does a fast import and the result is beautiful and easy to edit which is what I wanted to begin with.
