XDCAM-HD 422 MXF Custom FFMPEG issue

Post by vijm1972 » Wed Jul 13, 2016 9:08 am

Hi Steipal,

I am trying to transcode XDCAM-HD 422 using custom FFmpeg encoder, after conversion getting output as per attached screen shot at every 12 frames. When I processed same file through XDCAM-HD 422 encoder it's process perfectly.

Clean picture.

I am using below custom FFmpeg command.

-s 1920x1080 -r 25 -aspect 16:9 -pix_fmt yuv422p -vcodec mpeg2video -non_linear_quant 1 -flags +ildct+ilme -top 1 -dc 10 -intra_vlc 1 -qmax 3 -lmin "1*QP2LAMBDA" -vtag xd5c -rc_max_vbv_use 1 -rc_min_vbv_use 1 -g 12 -bf 2 -b:v 50000k -minrate 50000k -maxrate 50000k -bufsize 8000k -acodec pcm_s24le -ar 48000 -map 0

Can you please suggest if i need to change any settings in above command? Or how I can get exact command which you had used while creating XDCAM-HD 422 encoder.

Thanks,
Vijay

Hi Vijay,

If you enable "Keep all job work folders on completion" option in "Workflow setup"->"Maintainance" and submit a file, FFAStrans will generate lots of logfiles in the work directory. Among those files are the output and command used to generate the XDCAM files.
