Materials: available File templates and differences between them

Picture 3 12-00-59

Choosing a File template

When entering a Material entry and specifying File as the Format type, you are given a choice of File templates to classify your file. This will not only restrict the material metadata to make entry easier, but also determine what processing options will be available for the file uploaded to the Material entry later on. The File template must be selected before a file is uploaded to the Material entry; it cannot be changed after a file has been added.

 

 

Here’s an overview of File templates and how they determine which further processes will be available for files classified as such:

To ensure that processing options will be tailored to your file correctly, please take care when selecting the File template for your file. A file cannot be reclassified after it has been uploaded.

If you’re missing a transcoding option for your source format, or would like to transcode a Custom file format, note that further transcoding profiles can be added upon request. Please contact us for details.

If you’d like to find out whether your file formats other than IMX50 (PAL) and XDCAM HD422 (PAL) can be output to tape later on, please contact us for further information and pricing.
