For optimized video playback, please use recommended image sequence and video formats. These tools are of interest when encoding or transcoding content.

Encoding

- Adobe Plugin
The plugin can be used for content creation. Load the plugin into Adobe After Effects, Media Encoder or Premiere Pro and it allows you to encode your content either as DDS image sequences (three flavors) or as a single MOV file with the according HAP flavor.

- coolux codec / Quicktime component
Update: Adobe dropped support of Quicktime 7 in 2018. Unless you are using an extra plugin to generate Quicktime files, the following solution is not possible with current software versions any more. Please refer to the above described Adobe Plugin.

The codec can be used for content creation. Load the codec into third-party rendering software solutions like AfterFX; or third-party content converters like the Quicktime Player.
The codec allows you to encode your content as DDS, PNG and BMP image sequences (folders containing sequential images), or MOV files (containing sequential frames).

Transcoding

- Pandoras Box Encoder Extension
The Encoder Extension is implemented in Pandoras Box since version 4.5 and can be found in the "Tabs" menu of the PB Master if the Encoder Extension is activated on your dongle. Since 2020 the Encoder license is discontinued.
It transcodes AVI, MOV, or WMV files to MPEG1 or 2.

- Quicktime Converter
This tool comes with every Pandoras Box installation and can be found in the "Tools" menu of the PB Master.
It transcodes any Quicktime codec to a DDS, PNG and BMP image sequence (a folder containing sequential images), or a MOV file (containing sequental frames).
