MainConcept Codec Fits BMD Resolve

The plugin allows direct encoding of more formats from DaVinci Resolve Studio, eliminating the need to work in a separate application.

Starting with Resolve Studio 17, the Codec Plugin enables rendering project timelines into the same professional camera format the video was recorded in, including formats from Sony and Panasonic, and now DPP. The plugin allows you to remain in the same broadcast format, enabling full control for video creation and allowing for filming, capturing, editing and playout within Resolve Studio.

The plugin integrates directly into the software’s interface.

“We are honored to be the first company selected to build codec plugins that will further enhance the already amazing DaVinci Resolve experience,” says Thomas Kramer, vp of Product Management, MainConcept. “Our technology has long been integrated with the best video editing software available, including offerings from Adobe, Avid, Autodesk, and Corel.”

“It is exciting to think about the additional formats and improved efficiency that MainConcept’s Codec Plugin will bring to Resolve customers," said Dan May, President, Blackmagic Design.

With the plugin you can render projects into high-quality broadcast workflow formats like Sony XDCAM, XAVC, and Panasonic P2 AVC Ultra and AVC-Intra. You can also use generic HEVC/H.265 Main and Main 10 presets in up to 8K and create compliant AS-11 UK DPP content with SD and HD presets, including metadata for delivering to broadcasters.
