QLab’s official recommendation for best video format is… ProRes 422 Proxy?
How the hell do I convert to that?!
While QLab can handle just about any video file you can throw at it, I am always trying to keep QLab as lean as possible. The more resources I protect the more I’ll have at my disposal. Using videos without extra processing power to play and output helps a lot in this endeavor. QLab’s #1 recommended format is ProRes 422 proxy. I wanted to use the best possible format so my search began for the best way to convert all my show video files. I finally got a piece of software called MacX Video Converter that was robust and free (for clips under 5 mins) I thought I would share it with my Media Monkey customers. If you like this article please share it on Social Media.
As you can see under the info of this video clip’s properties. I have indeed created the #1 recommended video format for QLab. This program MacX does batch conversion so you can get all your show videos converted in a snap.
