Fisrt of all, Thank you for this awesome implementation of Voukoder inside of Davinci Resolve, I was a Mac user until I recently switched to Windows, so finding this tool was amazing so I could maintain my usual workflow using Apple ProRes for render and exports !
So, I was wondering what is the best way to export AppleProRes422HQ out ouf Davinci Resolve on Windows to get as close as possible as what an export out of a Mac machine would give. I think I get it pretty close but there are still some parts that I don't really know if I'm doing it correctly:
Here are my settings for DVR and Voukoder:
If I'm correct, AppleProRes422HQ have a 10bit color depth. I see that I can set that in voukoder with no issues but in DVR, I'm limited to YUV 8bit 422? Do you habe any ideas how to get 10bit out this thing? Is this bad if it is set in 8bit? Curious to have a hint on this
Also, I came upon an issue while playing the rendered clip on VLC. It has two problems.
- First is that the clip is laggy as hell, almost unplayable
- Second is that the gamme doesn't seems to display correctly
After doing some researche, I found a fix to this. I had to go into the VLC settings and set the video output setting from "automatic" to "OpenGl for windows". After changing this settings, playback was fine and the gamma issues was fixes (the image I see match what I saw in DVR before exporting)
Do you have any explanations about this VLC issue? Is-it maybe related to the data-level setting in DVR ? It would explain the gamma shift but not the sloppy playback i guess.
Thank you very much for your help !
