  • Cinema Craft Encoder MP [3] (Mac Compressor 3.5/4 plug-in)

Capable of single-pass and multi-pass Constant bitrate and Variable bitrate encoding, CCE-SP3 and CCE-MP convert from AVI and QuickTime to MPEG-2 video and mp2 audio. DVD-compliant MPEG-2 video or custom MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 video streams are supported as output formats.

-- AVC/H.264 (Blu-ray) --

CCE-HDe (full-featured) and CCE-LE (lite edition) are single-pass and multi-pass video encoders for AVC H.264. Blu-ray compliant AVC video streams are the output format. All versions accept AVI, Quicktime, HVD and Planar 420 input formats. Version 2 (2013-) introduced multi-format native ingest of Apple ProRes HQ/422, Avid DNxHD, Canopus Lossless, RAW, YUV, DPX, XDCAM and MXF.
