10 December 2019

Simple and fast transcode for various media formats.

Overview

EditReady provides easy, fast and powerful transcoding for video professionals, without an overwhelming interface or outdated format choices. MOV, MP4 and MXF media can all be quickly converted to edit ready quicktime movies in ProRes or DNxHD.

Features
  • More than just transcoding - In addition to transcoding to professional formats like ProRes, DNxHD, and H.264, EditReady makes it easy to prep your footage for screening and editing. You can apply LUTs to your video during conversion to set a specific look or convert your Log footage into Linear. EditReady also allows you to override the framerate on your converted files, for pristine slow-motion with your 60p or 120p footage.
  • Smart Metadata Editing - EditReady provides a rich metadata viewer and editor. Modern cameras store GPS data, lens settings, diagnostic data, and more. Manually add location data if your camera didn’t store it, or set a reel name for all of your files. You can even use metadata to generate filenames for your transcoded files.
  • Modern, Blazing Fast, Ready for the Future - EditReady is designed to take advantage of all of the power available on modern Macs. It leverages hardware accelerated video decoding, OpenCL image processing, and every CPU cycle your system has to spare. And EditReady is designed with the future in mind - it’s ready to adopt new formats and workflows.

If you are just looking to make the audio work on Sony (A6300, A6500 tested) MTS clips in FCPX and Davinci Resolve, Remux will do the job. Just convert the audio to aac-2 channel (you can leave video and subtitle alone) and save as .MP4 and your audio is back. Nothing wrong with EditReady if you have more complex needs. Or if you own FCPX, work from the original AVCHD file and FCPX will do the job. I occasionally face some stranded MTS so Remux (or EditReady) is a help.

Just bought.
Opened an 11.9Mb MP4 file and converted it to H264 with
frame rate and H264 "Aditional Options" selected for adjustment.
Accepted the defaults for those options.

The converting took 27 seconds.
The resulting file was 21.7Mb.

I'm no expert by far but that seems slow.
What if I tried a 500Mb to 1Gb file?
I will soon...

500Mb/12 = ~40 times bigger than 12Mb
40*27 = ~1000 seconds / 60 = ~16 minutes

We'll see...

Thanks ... Ken

Edit:
I'm using a nMP (2013) 3.7GHz 4 core.

EditReady is faster than many others out there, but its just on par with the internal FCPX transcoding. Since FCPX also supports MXF files now I dont see much of a reason to spend $50 for EditReady anymore. Except for maybe the LUT feature that really is great. But since this is a piece of software for professionals the price will be probably worth it even if you just like one tiny feature. EditReady definitely lacks many basic functions: -You cant stop a transcoding -You cant pause a transcoding -When you close ER it will still run minimized, but clicking the icon wont open it again. So you have to shut down the application through right clicking and launching it again. -The interface is simply but could be structured a lot better in terms of usability -The file list could display many more relevant information

EditReady is a professional-grade video transcoder that launches you from Production to Post Production as fast as possible. Literally. The proliferation of cameras shooting QuickTime movies means that more footage is being shot with greater ease, but it's not footage that feeds directly into the editing process, so it takes some prep work. This is where EditReady comes in. Its goal is to get your footage ready for the rest of the editing process as quickly as modern technology allows, and it has surprisingly met this goal. EditReady's interface is a wonderful case study in form closely following function. There is no dancing around the point: drop in your media, transcode, move on. This limits EditReady's place in your arsenal of video processing and editing tools – it likely won't have you dumping any of your current utilities altogether – but the fact that it does its job so effectively means that you will never have any reason *not* to use EditReady in your workflow. And with some additional useful features that allow users to screen footage, apply LUTs, edit metadata, and more, it'll fit in with your video toolset with incredible ease. EditReady was built with unprecedented attention to modern (i.e. 2011 Intel or later) Mac hardware, and the results are impossible to ignore. Fire up pretty much any media transcoder and give it a shot versus EditReady; the speed with which it transcodes (high) and the strain it places on your Mac (low) outclasses any other utility. Again, it's almost an unfair fight because EditReady was designed so carefully to address the specific use case of going from raw footage to edit-ready footage as soon as possible, but in the world of video production where time literally is money, you'll want EditReady fighting for you. There's a fascinating blog post on Divergent Media's website that details why its utility is so much faster than others' (they're all about that QuickSync): https://www.divergentmedia.com/blog/editreadyperformance/ Have a look for yourself! Does EditReady seem like an investment worth making for those in the video production field? Any other one-trick tools worth adding to your video editing arsenal?
