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 email support@divergentmedia.com or file a support request.

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.

Why are the DNxHD/HR presets grayed out?

EditReady relies on Avid's QuickTime DNX codec for encoding DNX content. These presets will be disabled if your system does not have the needed component installed.

You can download this component for free from Avid: http://avid.force.com/pkb/articles/en_US/download/Avid-QuickTime-Codecs-LE

Does EditReady support my camera?

We have worked hard to test EditReady with as many camera files as possible. We've created a list of the cameras we actively test with. As long as your camera conforms to the MOV, MP4, MXF, HDV, AVCHD, or AVCHD lite specification, it should work great. We also encourage you to download our free trial to try for yourself. And of course, if you find a format EditReady doesn't support, please let us know, we're eager to fix any problems users might encounter.

Do I need EditReady or ClipWrap?

EditReady supports all of the formats that ClipWrap supports, plus all the modern formats like MOV, MXF, and MP4. If you've got Mac OS X 10.8 or later, EditReady is all you need. We continue to support and maintain ClipWrap for users with older versions of Mac OS X. If you've got AVCHD and HDV footage and an older Mac, ClipWrap has you covered.

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).
