Automatically downscaled versions from 4k and HD

S’abonner

Why isn't it possible to have the option to let the system automatically produce downscaled versions from uploaded 4k and HD Footage like it is on SS?

Is there a specific reason behind this?
because we do have it for images, why not for Footage?

Thanks everyone :)

    This is a heavily requested feature, and it's being worked on. Don't worry, it's coming. :)

    Do you think it will be possible to add this feature to the already uploaded 4K and HD clips? or would we need to unload does clips again, to let the system produce the downscaled versions?

    I don't have the details on how the system will work, but I don't anticipate that it would work like that, no. I would expect it would only apply to future uploads. Currently live 4K and HD content would not be affected. But I'll bring this point up with the people working on it. :)

    Jonathan could you tell us how long it will take to get the downscale feature ready for us to use? what timeframe are we talking about? 2 weeks, 2 Moths? or much longer?

    For me its important to know, cause i have a lot of 4k Footage waiting in line, and i don't wanna upload and tag them twice.

    thanks for any update :)

    I understand Julian, but I'm afraid I don't have a timetable. It's being working on, and we'll have it live as soon as we can.

    But I'll make sure to tell the team that people are really clamoring for this feature (which is totally true) and see if we can't push up the priority on it. :)

    Over two months ago P5 in the suggestion area said they were working on the auto downsizing of 4K to HD. It also said they doubt that existing 4K would be downsized only new clips. This is troubling.

    So how is this capability coming along?

    If old clips will not be auto downsized then it really makes little sense to keep submitting 4K until after the capability is established. I don't think that is a good sales direction for either the artist or P5. 4K files are so large and take so much bandwidth I would rather wait with 4K until the upgrade .... if there really is an upgrade coming.

    P5 we really need some communication. We are making business decisions with not enough information to make decisions. If SS and RS can do it and are successfully doing it, what is the problem here?

    Thanks for the great work on sales ... just need communication so we can run our business better.

    I completely agree with Don, Jonathan could you give us an update on this topic? when will this feature be ready to use? or is pond5 not interested in this feature because they wanna push the buyer to buy the 4k files?

    I understand that it's been a long wait, and I'm afraid I don't have any dates or time lines that I can share. But rest assured, this project is still active and the feature is coming.

    Great to hear it's still being worked. BIG question now ... will existing 4K be downsized to HD? If this will not happen then makes little sense to upload new 4K clips.

    I've just checked with the team, and progress is coming along smoothly. The feature should be ready before too much longer, probably a few weeks. I've also confirmed that we will be down converting all the currently live 4K content as well.

    That is great news about downsizing existing 4K. I have several hundred 4K that I've been holding back. Still sounds like the best action is uploading HD and then 4K after the capability is really here. Thanks for the update.

    I assume P5 is really looking into the quality needed to downsize. There is a lot of discussion on the forum about codex and package for HD and especially 4K. It would be great to hear the official P5 stance on this. Many use Mac's and I would guess most use PC's so there is limitation on what we can do. There are a number of costly plug-ins available but without a firm agreement it doesn't make since for everyone to experiment. SO what is the newest position of P5 on 4K?

    We will be down converting to h.264 and prores for all 4K items.

    will the h.264 be in a QT .mov wrapper? Same for Prores. If we know exactly what P5 feels is best and will use we can then try to match the same quality to avoid problems or conflicts.

    Yup, .mov wrapper for both. :)
