    I  have been tasked to  implement a Rhozet WFS cluster at work and am trying to find a linux alternative to present to management.   Can this product be used to transcode a prores file to MXF?

    Prores is a codec, MXF is a wrapper, so the question is not well formed.
    However the underlying ffmpeg used in Ingex can be used to decode Prores, and encode some codecs in MXF wrappers.
    However A more up to date version than used in Ingex would be recommended.

    Thanks for your response and for setting me straight.  What would be a more up to date method that you would recommend?

     
  • I think he meant use a more up to date version of ffmpeg than the one installed by Ingex.

    I use ffmpeg (well, actually ffmbc, which is a Broadcast video tuned variant) to convert  occasional Prores footage to MXF for Avid use.

    Download from here http://code.google.com/p/ffmbc/
    Try using version 0.7rc7
