I've been messing around with HF off and on for about 3 years now. I have used Express for quite some time, but am now thinking about making the jump to HF Pro for all my editing and compositing. I run a corporate video production company and I think that HF fills all my needs quite nicely. Plus, the fact that I will no longer have to make a hefty monthly payment to you-know-who for my software is rather appealing.
Anyway, I have noticed that HF works very nicely with Cineform files. In fact, I seem to get better performance using Cineform than using HF proxies. The problem I am having is I cannot find software that will transcode my MTS/MP4 files from my Panasonic G7 into .mov files with the Cineform codec. The catch is that I need to work in full 4K if possible. So I need something that will transcode to 4K Cineform files. I have been using Adobe Media Encoder for testing, but obviously, if all goes well and I make the commitment to HF, I will be losing my Adobe subscription.
So, I would love to hear suggestions for a transcoder that outputs 4K Cineform files. I tried using GoPro Quik, but it won't recognize the files from my camera. What do you all use?
Thanks in advance.
