For me personally, I'd love to author 4k home movies on a durable medium for longevity. But since there is money to be made it will eventually show up, perhaps as a plug in. Only licensed authoring software provides good access to anything beyond the most basic features. Then there's also the consumer side of things. General public could care less about authoring. Submissions must be related to the discussion of digital piracy.
Why don't you email the usual suspects? It was great, but those days are over. Either message the mod team if relevant, or make a post on the sub as normal. If this is true, then you better get on the blower to the software makers as soon as you can. It sounds easy on paper, but in reality there are all kinds of problems going that way including chapters, testing it, correct encoding, subtitles, how to get video out of videoeditor if that is the case etc. Ain't nothing else available, though Sony is doing their own thing with their own software that might come out down the line. Actually, I specifically mentioned both.Next
Seems like a prize opportunity for a niche market to me. As oppose just edit something and export regular settings and just burn it on disc if that is a case. There are many similar posts you can find via our friend google. And it is ready for any player, copy etc. That entry point will fall as competiion encroaches. They want files they can save, stream and put on YouTube. An enthusiast of home-grown material 2.Next
Video is encoded strictly to Blu-Ray spec stream. Are you currently authoring anything? But please do not tell me to get lost just because I would like to have that feature, and at some point I will. Scott If you are a professional, then act like one. Which, in turn, might limit market size. The problem is to point the player in the right direction to find the file. Don't forget, videohelp is a very, very, very, very small segment of the general population, who only wants to stream now. It sets the expectation for a pricing framework.Next
Tick We now have the means to store and archive that content. They will not make stuff simply for people who post on videohelp. Sadly I think home use authoring is a dead end; I wish it were not the case, but who does it anymore? I've already written on this previously here: not going to happen for a long time, if ever. Market size, and the reasons for authoring a disc in the 'new age'. The only barrier I see in that statement is development cost. Feel free to chime in if I am wrong on this.Next
Right now though, there are only four replication sources for the whole industry and all the authoring is being done by Sony or Technicolor. Branding, positioning, marketing, and so on. As time has gone on, nobody wants them. No updates yet or, more likely, no forum members in the know as to when we might see a consumer oriented offering in the wild. But you're right, I get the distinct feeling that a website about 'video help' is entirely the wrong forum to discuss ideas about video authoring. And to learn how to handle software, whatever language dedicated for it.Next
So you want a simple muxer then, not an authoring program an authoring program has a muxer, yes, but is so much more. There is absolutely no evidence that people want to author anymore. So the means of production have been held close to their hegemonic fortress. We have a unique perspective and understanding of evolution of our industry and we want to continue to serve our customers for many more formats to come. Count on Scenarist to deliver. However, from a software development house' perspective, there are always other ways to offset high development costs. Being an 'Old school' developer with 'steep profitability' is actually an advantage in this scenario, unlike a start-up.Next
The market for such products is not even niche now. I am nearly 100% confident some sort of consumer version will. Folder or directory structure with subdirectories with properly named clips seems to be even far superior in a sense. Orbital360, sameself, are correct, there are plenty of reasons to have this feature! Only those who are invested in old school steep profitability and are deemed good risks regarding the status quo are leased the keys to the kingdom. They cite a lack of appropriate hardware in the hands of consumers as part of the reason. Big tick I don't see any reasons here for authoring. I have already told you so that you should be in the know.
