This guide describes which codecs, frame sizes, and frame rates are supported by Flow:
Here is a description of the various Flow functions:
- Flow Scan allows you to scan folders to update the Flow database with information about clips not captured by Flow. For example:
- clips there were ingested by or exported from an NLE
- clips copied from an external source using a Windows or Macintosh file manager
File Ingest allows you to centrally ingest from file-based sources. Flow supports ingest of a wide range of file-based media including XDCAM-EX cards, P2 cards, XDCAM Professional Discs, and even virtual device directories located on USB, FireWire, or local storage devices. If you connect your device to an Express card, PC-card slot, or USB or FireWire port on your Flow Browse workstation, you can browse the contents of that card or disk in Flow.
Encode To represents the file types that you can transcode to using Flow's File Ingest function.
Rewrap To represents the available wrappers for re-wrapping a file using Flow's File Ingest function. This allows you to keep clips in their native codec without any re-encoding - which is a much faster process. For example, you can re-wrap a XDCAM MXF file to be a XDCAM QuickTime file.
- Edit While Capture. With supported codecs, you can start editing while Flow capture is in progress.
