The next exclusive on Rolling Stone Magazine is now online from the forthcoming LIVE AT BRIXTON Mastodon set which (as you already know) I directed. ‘BLACK TONGUE’ has never been seen by anyone!
NB: People are showing concern over the audio quality. Let me be the first to say that Rolling Stone’s website video player is poor for this kinda stuff, so please don’t take what you hear at face value. The audio mix is incredible for this show! Head to youtube for a better sample quality, but those downloading from iTunes on December 10th can expect to hear the mix in all it’s glory!
If you’re working with anyone on a PC based edit system, there’s a chance at some point you might be presented with a DNxHD file which is basically an equivalent of the PRO-RES apple codec, but on PC. It’s an AVID based codec (uncompressed HD) which translates nicely into PRO-RES once you get hold of your files/footage.
You can convert the AVID codec easily with two things:
Grab these two downloads and you should be on your way to easy street. The codec was found through about 20 minutes of google searching, and reading through a couple editors forums. Again this proves my point that anyone can solve any problem by a little research. Ironically, you might be reading this from a google search, in which case means you might well have created a Back To The Future style paradox where the world may end (best search google for the solution to that as well).
