View and Edit Metadata

EditReady allows you to view and edit all of the metadata contained within your file - this may include location data, camera settings, and diagnostic information. You can even use metadata to automatically rename files.

Really Fast.

EditReady is designed to use all the power available on a modern mac. It can even leverage the power of your graphics card for fast image processing.

Pro Formats

EdtReady is designed with video professionals in mind. Rather than overwhelming you with hundreds of choices you'll never use, EditReady is tailored to the formats you use every day - convert any MXF or QuickTime to ProRes, DNxHD and H.264.

Multiple Batches

You can run simultaneous batches within the EditReady interface, allowing you to simultaneously generate proxy media and online material, or convert footage from different cameras.

Convert between DNxHD and ProRes

Perhaps your project started life in Final Cut Pro, but will be finishing life in Avid. EditReady lets you easily move between these popular mezzanine formats.

Preview and Playback

Mac users know that just viewing clips with QuickTime X isn't always as easy as we'd like. EditReady provides a simple player to view your content, even if it's in a legacy format.

Native Apple ProRes

Many other transcoding apps on the market use a reverse engineered implementation of Apple ProRes. By leveraging the official Apple version, EditReady avoids compatibility issues.

The Best MXF Transcoder Too

Whether you're working with MXF from a camera like the Canon C300 or Sony F5, or exporting MXF files from a program like Da Vinci Resolve, EditReady is the fastest and easiest way to transcode MXF video.

Introduction to EditReady

Advanced Workflows

Working with MXF

We're here to help, and have a wide variety of resources to assist with using EditReady. Many questions are answered in our user manual (also available from the "help" menu of the application) or in the frequently asked questions below. If you need a bit more support, you can file a support request or give us a call at 888-632-0904.

Which formats does EditReady support?

EditReady aims to support any file in a QuickTime or MXF wrapper - files with an .MXF .MOV, .MP4, and .M4V extension (excluding encrypted files). That includes ProRes, DNxHD, DVCProHD, H.264, Apple Intermediate, and more.

If you have problems with a particular clip and would like us to take a look, just highlight the clip in EditReady and choose "submit selected" from the "Help" menu.

Does EditReady support MXF files?

Yes we do! We added support for MXF as a free upgrade in EditReady 1.1. Get in touch if you have specific questions about MXF.

Do I need EditReady or ClipWrap?

We've created a partial list of some cameras and formats that work great with EditReady, and which work better with ClipWrap. Keep in mind that any file that plays in QuickTime player should work with EditReady, even if it's not on that list.

As a rough guideline, if the files you have end in .mts, .m2t, or .m2ts you should look at ClipWrap. If your files end in .mov, .mp4, .m4v, or .mxf give EditReady a try. And remeber there are free trials for both, so try them out with the footage on hand if you're unsure.

What are the system requirements for EditReady?

EditReady works on any Mac running Mac OS X 10.8 or later. If available, EditReady takes advantage of hardware H.264 encode/decode functionality (this includes most modern Macs).
