MovieExport Professional Main Concept

MainConcept MovieExport Pro


MainConcept MovieExport Professional is a versatile encoding plug-in on Mac OS X for many popular editing applications, such as Final Cut Pro, QuickTime Pro, iMovie, etc. The new preset-based plug-in will improve the workflow for users on Mac OS X, allowing them to export their projects using the high-quality MainConcept codecs, that are already known from the powerful Reference transcoder and can also be found in many video-editing applications. MovieExport Professional offers renowned presets for Blu-ray Disc, the whole Sony XDCAM portfolio, Adobe Flash F4V, Apple iPod, Sony PSP, AVCHD, DVD, and many more predefined presets. Simply choose the desired preset and start exporting your project in amazing quality and speed.

MainConcept MovieExport uses a quite unusual approach for selecting the preset format for exporting your projects. The base of the preset selection is the file format and container format, resp. So you do not choose the codec (e.g. MPEG-2, H.264/AVC, etc.) or the profile (e.g. XDCAM EX, AVCHD, etc.), but the file extensions, such as MXF, MP4, M2TS, M4V, etc.

Here is the list of Codecs that are included in MainConcept MovieExport Professional at a glance:

    * H.264/AVC Pro
    * MPEG-1/2
    * MPEG-4 Part 2
    * VC-1 Pro

The MainConcept MovieExport Profesisonal module provides direct access to the most important settings via QuickTime export like resolution, video type, frame rate and bitrate. You can even choose the desired audio codec if it is supported by the format you want to use.

MovieExport Professional allows you to use all predefined and custom presets from the MainConcept Reference application. It even enables you to import new user-defined presets from Reference into the MovieExport plug-in software for using them in Final Cut Pro, QuickTime Pro, iMovie, etc.

Depending on the video codec and format, other supported audio formats in MovieExport Professional are AAC, MPEG audio (Layer 1 & Layer 2), WMA and PCM/LPCM, in order to add unprecedented sound experience to your streams.
