Just wondering. Has anyone tried this out? Needs a PC. I'm wondering if it is possible for it to work on the Mac.

It seems like it would be possible to adapt for the Mac. ffmpeg is very powerful.

My software:
Pro Maintenance Tools - Tools to keep Final Cut Studio, Final Cut Pro X, Avid Media Composer and Adobe Premiere Pro running smoothly and fix problems when they arise
Pro Media Tools - Edit QuickTime chapters and metadata, detect gamma shifts, edit markers, watch renders and more
More tools...

Okay, so far I tried playing it in FFMPEG X and all I got was garbled pixels.

I'm somewhat amazed that Avid wouldn't want to make their own free DNxHD player. Or better yet, some kind of simple Finder integration.

Talk about FFMPEG being powerful... Apparently it now supports Prores encoding. Which means you can encode Prores on PCs. Not sure if it can embed QT timecode or multitrack audio, but that's a start.

Avid... IMO, one of my wish list is that Avid allows 3rd party developers to create transcoders to encode to mxf and create an ALE to import footage into Avid. RC-X does it, and now Sorenson Squeeze Pro (although without timecode), but there doesn't seem to be anything else. Fast import from QT is cool, but being able to encode straight to Avid's version of op-atom is even better.

Resolve goes right to OP-Atom DNxHD too.

True that. A pity that camera manufacturers prefer shooting to op-1A mxf, but apparently, the reason is because op-atom will result in corrupted files if recording was to suddenly truncate.
