What is Avide DNxHD?
Avid DNxHD is a lossy high-definition video post-production codec engineered for multi-generation compositing with reduced storage and bandwidth requirements. This codec can be used as both an intermediate editing format and as a presentation format. DNxHD data is typically stored in an MXF container and it can also be stored in a QuickTime container.
Why use Avid DNxHD codec?
Native HD camera compression formats are efficient, but simply aren’t engineered to maintain quality during complex post production effects processing. Uncompressed HD delivers superior image quality, but data rates and file sizes can stop a workflow dead in its tracks. Avid DNxHD delivers both efficiency and quality without compromises.
