We have added much more detailed information about the Matrox MAX RT engine for CS5 later on in this article.
Videoguys’ Tech Note: We have received many requests and questions about MXO2 Mini supporting Sony Vegas Pro 9. We have passed this information to Matrox. Unfortunately, as of Sept 2010, these programs are not supported. If anything changes in the future we’ll be sure to let you know. What kind of HD workflows does MXO2 Mini support? The MXO2 Mini supports HDV, XD CAM, DVC Pro HD, P2 and uncompressed HD. With the MXO2 Mini you can go directly from your Final Cut or Premiere Pro timeline out to your HD monitor via component and/or HDMI.
I think it’s important to note that both of these outputs are active at the same time, meaning you can simultaneously preview your timeline on your HDMI equipped HDTV while recording to an HD deck via the component output. You can capture HD footage into your NLE via the MXO2 Mini’s HDMI or Component video input. Does MXO2 Mini Support ProRes? In fact you can capture directly into ProRes via the Mini’s HDMI or Component inputs if you have a fast enough Mac (4 cores or more).
While you edit, your ProRes HD timeline will play out directly via the MXO2 Mini’s outputs. Matrox supports all the new ProRes flavors introduced as part of the new Final Cut Studio 3 with the exception of ProRes 4444. How do you capture HD with Adobe Premiere Pro on Windows? MXO2 Mini gives you two options for HD capture in Adobe Premiere Pro. You can capture uncompressed HD or you can capture into the Matrox MPEG2 HD CODEC. The Matrox MPEG2 HD CODEC allows you to variably set the bit rate and has been used in Matrox’s Axio and RT.X line of products for years.
It is tested and proven in even the most demanding broadcast environments. Does Matrox MXO2 Mini support AVCHD? If you’re working with AVCHD, you can capture the footage using the MXO2 Mini via the HDMI or Component video input into ProRes with Apple Final Cut or the Matrox MPEG2 CODEC as mentioned above with Adobe Premiere Pro. The MXO2 Mini also supports CineForm NeoScene and NeoHD. You can’t use the Matrox MXO2 Mini to capture directly into the CineForm CODEC yet, but Matrox and CineForm are working together to add that support to the MXO2 Mini with CineForm’s NeoHD. For now, you need to convert your AVCHD files into CineForm’s CODEC and then edit them with Adobe Premiere Pro. This conversion is faster than realtime and an hour of AVCHD footage usually takes between 20-30 minutes to convert, depending on the speed of your computer.
Your CineForm timeline will then play out through the MXO2 Mini’s HDMI or Component video outputs. Videoguys’ Tech Note: Cineform NeoScene and NeoHD are available for the Mac but have not been tested with the Matrox MXO2 Mini with Apple FinalCut Pro at the time of this article. The advantage of using CineForm over native AVCHD is that it is a better compression for video editing. AVCHD is amazing and it packs a ton of exquisite HD footage into very small files. Unfortunately these files require a ton of horsepower to edit. Even with a powerful machine editing more then 2 layers of AVCHD footage becomes problematic. You’ll see sluggish timeline performance and jittery previews.
The CineForm CODEC is practically lossless. Your video will look just as spectacular, in full 1920 x 1080 resolution, only it will be much easier to edit. You’ll even be able to handle multiple layers of CineForm HD footage with filters and effects on a Core i7 machine. What does up/down convert and cross convert mean in the MXO2 Mini Specs? Great question and one that is causing lots of confusion.
The MXO2 Mini will allow you to convert from one format to another during capture or output. This is done on the fly utilizing the Matrox MXO2 Mini hardware at 10-bits. For example, if you have an HD timeline that you need to output to SD you can just use the Matrox MXO2 Mini to down-convert your HD footage to SD on the fly as you output and you won’t need to re-render your project.
Cross conversion means you can output a 720p timeline as 1080i and vice versa. This can save you a tremendous amount of time if your customer, client or boss requires a specific output format that doesn’t match your original footage. No need to re-render, just let the MXO2 Mini do the heavy lifting! Videoguys’ Tech Note: The MXO 2 Mini will not convert or accelerate the rendering of your timeline from one format to another. The MXO2 Mini does it’s conversion magic during capture or output. What is Matrox MAX Technology and why do I want it? Matrox MAX technology is a special hardware chip that gives you H.264 acceleration.
Jmfr Priser P Matrox Mxo For Mac Download
There is a version of the Matrox MXO2 Mini with MAX that has this hardware built right into the box and is available for only $400 more than the standard MXO2 Mini. MAX allows you to encode your video to H.264 for Blu-ray, Flash or YouTube at faster than real-time!
How fast is it? Right now a fully loaded 8-core Mac Pro tower will take several hours to encode one hour of ProRes HD video to H.264 – with the Matrox Max it will take less then an hour! That’s right faster then real-time encoding – even on a slower Mac. At the 2010 NAB SHOW, Matrox announced that the MXO2 Mini with MAX would support the Adobe Mercury Playback Engine.
You may use a Matrox MXO2 family I/O device with Matrox MAX technology to tap into the Mercury Playback Engine and deliver multiple layers of AVCHD or DSLR footage with full speed, HD playback to an HDMI enabled flat panel display. Combine it with a CUDA graphics card and you’ll get an amazing level of real-time performance! Note: Initially the Matrox MAX RT Mercury Engine will be for Windows only. What is H.264? H.264 is an encoding standard used to produce the very highest quality Blu-ray and web based video. It is used by Hollywood and the networks to provide the highest possible image quality in the smallest possible file sizes. That means it is very highly compressed video.
As a result encoding your HD video to H.264 gives you the very best possible quality video but, unfortunately, H.264 encoding takes lots of computer power and rendering time. The MXO2 family of products with MAX technology massively accelerate your H.264 encoding. Can I buy the Matrox MXO2 Mini now and upgrade it with MAX later? When you purchase the MXO2 Mini you have to decide if you want it with or without MAX technology. Unfortunately you can’t upgrade an MXO2 Mini to a Mini MAX. The MAX chips are integrated into the main circuit board during manufacturing. If you decided to buy an MXO2 Mini without MAX now and you want to add it later, you do still have an option if you are using a workstation.
You can add the Matrox Compress HD card ($495) and it will deliver the full range of MAX features plus the added benefit of being able to encode in the background while you are using your MXO2 Mini for monitoring the output of your timeline! What is the difference between the MXO2 Mini and the other flavors of MXO2? The difference in the MXO2 family of products is the input & output options available on them.
The features, capabilities, performance and power of all of the MXO2 family of products are exactly the same. The MXO2 LE adds support for SDI I/O.
SDI stands for Serial Digital Interface and it is used with broadcast gear. If you do not have decks or camcorders that require SDI, then you do not need to step up to the MXO2 LE. The MXO2 Mini has everything you need!. If you need SDI then the MXO2 LE at under $1,000 is a fantastic choice. It also adds RS422 deck control and XLR Audio. The MXO2 adds additional audio I/O and SDI channels.
The MXO2 Rack adds even more audio I/O and genlock loop-thru in a rugged rack mount design for broadcast environments. YES What is the difference between the MXO2 Mini and the RT.X2 for Adobe Premiere Pro editors? This is a great question and one that we get all the time. The RT.X2 is a real-time hardware accelerator for Adobe Premiere Pro. That means that when you add certain effects, transitions, filters and layers to your timeline, they playback instantly in full resolution and full speed.
They do not require any rendering for playback. The RT.X2 was designed primarily for the HDV format. If you shoot HDV it is still a great product for you, especially if you have an older computer.
In a fully loaded Core i7 machine you will find that you can edit HDV footage pretty easily without an RT.X2 and whatever rendering you do need will be minimal. In this case, the MXO2 Mini is the perfect addition to your system to add the I/O you need, including HD monitoring from the Adobe timeline. If you’re editing with Premeire Pro CS3 or CS4 the MXO2 Mini with CineForm NeoScene will give you the fastest and most efficient AVCHD workflow. If you are going to upgrade and edit with CS5, the best solution for you the MXO2 Mini w/ Max technology! MATROX MXO2 Mini MAX now with Real-Time Editing for ADOBE PREMIERE PRO CS5 The Matrox MXO2 platforms with MAX feature Matrox RT technology that enhances the Adobe Mercury Playback Engine to provide full-resolution, full-frame-rate, multi-layer, realtime video editing.
Matrox RT technology is designed for use with or without the presence of GPU acceleration. It provides many of the benefits of GPU acceleration but works with any system, even laptops. It optimizes your system to output to professional monitors at full-resolution and full-frame-rate. In addition, Matrox RT provides advanced realtime Matrox Flex CPU effects such as primary and secondary color correction, smooth speed changes, and many more; along with a high-quality, highly-efficient MPEG-2 I-frame intermediate codec that streamlines working with CPU-taxing footage such as AVCHD and XDCAM.
Realtime Matrox Flex CPU effects with Adobe Premiere Pro The Matrox MXO2 platforms with MAX work in conjunction with the power of your CPU to perform a variety of advanced realtime effects including:. Realtime timecode The Matrox Flex CPU effects are also available in Adobe After Effects.
If you have a timeline in Premiere Pro with any of the Matrox Flex CPU effects and you copy/paste the timeline into After Effects, the Matrox effects will remain intact. This is a huge time saver, given that these effects are realtime in Premiere Pro. Matrox Flex CPU effects are also available for use with versions of the MXO2 devices without MAX, however, the effects may not perform in real time. Realtime primary color correction Primary color correction is a critically important effect for all productions, whether to achieve continuity when cutting between shots, ensure broadcast safe levels, or establish and emphasize a “look”. The primary color corrector provides basic proc amp control; three-way color correction complete with master, shadows, midtones and highlights control; input/output level control; and RGB curves control. Click on image for a closer look (22 KB) Realtime proc amp controls The Matrox MXO2 devices let you easily adjust four proc amp controls – hue, saturation, brightness, and contrast. Hue adjusts the tint of the colors in the image, saturation adjusts the vividness, contrast adjusts the difference in luminance between the lightest and darkest areas of the image, and brightness adjusts the level of black.
You can also use these controls to create special effects, such as black and white, in real time. Click on image for a closer look (22 KB) Realtime color match and color balance Colors can be corrected using nine parameters related to the black (shadow), midtone, and white (highlight) levels of your clips. You can easily match colors or balance blacks, whites, and grays against a reference shot in one simple step. Click on image for a closer look (34 KB) Reference Match Corrected Realtime input/output level control Using the histogram display and level controls, luminance levels can be remapped to maximize the dynamic range of a clip. For example, bright areas can be made brighter and dark areas can be made darker. Five parameters are available – black, white, and gamma levels on the input; and black and white levels on the output.
Auto white and auto black controls are also provided. Click on image for a closer look (25 KB) Realtime RGB curves control RGB curves control offers a fast, natural way to fine-tune the colors in your video. If, for example, you want to remove a blue tint from your video, you simply drag the blue curve down. With RGB curves you can also achieve wild color effects and other looks that are otherwise impossible. Click on image for a closer look (11 KB) Realtime secondary color correction The secondary color corrector is an advanced tool used for fine-tuning or dramatic effects creation. It offers all the controls found in the primary color correction filter with the added capability of limiting the effect to a specific range of pixels. Pixel selection can be done using color and/or brightness.
Using the simple garbage matte tool, you can also limit the effect to a specific region. The pixel selection can also be inverted.
The secondary color corrector lets you achieve effects such as color pass and color replace. It can be used, for example, to change the color of a dress, deepen the background sky color, or to achieve an effect similar to the film Schindler’s List where only one object or person remains in color while the rest of the image becomes black and white.
Click on image for a closer look (34 KB) Realtime chroma and luma keying The Matrox MXO2 devices provide one of the finest realtime chroma keyers in the industry. Clean blue- and green-screen keys are easy to achieve, even with HDV and AVCHD material shot in less than optimal lighting conditions. Your video is upsampled to 4:4:4:4 resolution and advanced noise reduction algorithms are used to ensure superior results. The auto key button intelligently adjusts the key with soft edges, spill removal, and shadow preservation. If needed, you can further refine the key with manual controls.
You can key on any color, not just blue and green. You can also invert the selection and display the matte being generated to fine tune the key. Click on image for a closer look (40 KB) The realtime luma keyer gives you low clip, low gain, high clip, high gain, and transparency controls. Click on image for a closer look (40 KB) Realtime speed changes You can use speed changes to emphasize special moments, extend the duration of shots to match voiceover timing, or enhance the feeling of dramatic shots. You can apply smooth slow and fast motion with field or frame blending.
Realtime transitions The Matrox MXO2 devices support standard dissolves, SMPTE wipes, and organic wipes with soft edges and color borders. Click on image for a closer look (37 KB) Realtime move & scale This effect lets you apply multiple 2D DVEs simultaneously in real time to easily set up picture-in-picture effects.
You can also use the move & scale effect to animate multiple titles in real time. Realtime SD clip upscaling in an HD timeline This effect is enabled by right-clicking on an SD clip in an HD timeline and selecting “scale to frame size”. It provides realtime playback of SD clips upscaled to HD to let you mix NTSC material into a 1080i at 29.97 fps timeline or PAL material into a 1080i at 25 fps timeline. It also provides realtime playback of 576p or 486p SD clips upscaled to HD to mix into a 1080p timeline. Realtime HD clip downscaling in an SD timeline This effect is enabled by right-clicking on an HD clip in an SD timeline and selecting “scale to frame size”.
It provides realtime playback of HD clips downscaled to SD to let you mix 1080i at 29.97 fps material into an NTSC timeline or 1080i at 25 fps material into a PAL timeline. Native Adobe Premiere Pro effects and transitions Some of Adobe Premiere Pro’s most popular native effects and transitions such as Opacity, Crop, Dip to Black, Black and White, Dissolve, and Additive Dissolve can be used in real time in SD. The Matrox MXO2 devices accelerate these effects and transitions in HD. Realtime timecode The MXO2 devices overwrite the Adobe Premiere Pro timecode filter so that it becomes realtime. The realtime time code effect lets you generate and overlay a time code counter on a video production.
You can use it to make a dub of source tapes with time code “burn-in” then use these tapes to log scenes, create edit decision lists, or get client feedback on your finished production. Click on image for a closer look (20 KB) Matrox MPEG-2 I-frame intermediate codec with Adobe Premiere Pro The Matrox MPEG-2 I-frame intermediate codec is a high-quality, highly-efficient 8-bit 4:2:2 video codec used mainly as a less processor-intensive way of working with long-GOP footage such as HDV, AVCHD, and XDCAM HD. The bit rate of the codec can be set between 50 and 300 Mbps, giving you the flexibly on each clip to make your own tradeoffs between video quality and storage considerations. It can be used with Adobe Premiere Pro in four ways:. as a full-raster capture codec when capturing from SDI or analog;.
as an intermediate editing format when working with CPU-taxing formats such as AVCHD to maximize quality as well as editability;. as a rendering codec to ensure that “flattened” files maintain high quality when exporting or printing to tape; and. as an effective archiving codec for material that may be used in future projects.
Videoguys’ System Recommendations for the Matrox MXO2 Mini with MAX and Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 The new CS5 version of Adobe Premeire Pro requires a 64-bit operating system, a multi-core processor, plenty of RAM and a fast GPU.
