YoYotta Transcode

High quality transcoding creating DPX, MOV, MP4 or MXF+AFF copies of material
With CDL, 3D LUT, REC709 processing and image resizing

Quick, easy transcoding

Connect a drive or drop in a folder and transcode all the material or select which folders or source types need to be transcoded. ALE and CSV reports can be generated. Burn in timecode or watermarks and logos. Send output to multiple destinations.

CDL, 3D LUT, REC709 Matrix processing

Add a CDL file to apply slope, offset, power and saturation
Add a 16, 17, 32, 33, 64 or 65 point 3D LUT to convert Log material to REC709 or to apply a creative grade
Add a matrix to convert to REC709


Resizing clips

Transcode at original size or up-res or down-res to a new size. Fit Width or Fit Height to create Letterbox or pillarbox with blanking.


Create DPX sequences

Output to 10 or 16 bit DPX or ProRes 4444 for online workflows.


Transcode DPX with Audio

YoYotta can add audio channels when transcoding DPX image sequences to H.264 or ProRes. Put the audio WAV file into the same directory or the directory above and give it the same name as the DPX file prefix. Use a . or _ to separate the sequence name from the sequence framecount. Here the sequence name is 4P_01-1.new.0100 and the frame count starts at 86420. Other examples would be VFX174.090000.dpx with VFX174.WAV or Clip1_090000.dpx with Clip1.WAV


Conform and Transcode

Use the YoYotta Conform option as a source for the Transcode. Easily create over-length selects from the source material for online.


Transcode is available as an option for YoYotta, YoYotta LTFS or YoYotta Automation
