As I mentioned in another section, we desperately need 1080 24p encoding.
Almost all our feature films are native 24p, and we and our clients need a 1-to-1 Blu-ray viewing copy.
If Matrox MXO2 MAX can not do that, than our purchase is of much, much less value.

Before this request, I searched for similar requests, and I'm not the only one who's asking for 24p encoding.

Thank you very very much in advance!!!

I've supplied a 24p MXO2 Max generated encoding of a 30sec cinema advert and it all worked just fine.

You just select a frame rate in the encoding settings and it's about as hard as that.

Hi Andrew,

I can not imagine that you did a native 24p (NOT 23.976) Matrox 264 encoding.
The preset simply doesn't exist, and the custom settings doesn't give that choice either.

When I use the standard Adobe Media Encoder H.264 Blu-ray settings, I do have the choice for native 24p (besides 23.976).
All other encoders I have worked with can do the same, so why not Matrox?
We bought the Matrox MAX specially for this purpose (speed and render quality).

Nowhere in the readings (brochure, manual, website) are specific details to find which describes what frame rates for what encoding purposes are available.
Only the global frame rates are mentioned without any further explanation.
Sam told me that they are the supported frame rates for capturing and play-out.

How hard can it be to implement this 24p 264 Blu-ray encoding choice in the next driver/firmware release?

I really like to see a confirming reply for this badly needed (not wanted, NEEDED) request.

Regards,
Arno

Hi Arno,

Ahh, I see you need the specifically 23.976fps setting. (I don't shot for cinema so it's never been a real issue for me.)

I suspect that it would be a very easy option to be added to the drivers for the MXO2.; Just a matter of adding the feature request to the requests part of the forum which you have done.

No idea how long it would take for the next version of the drivers to come out.

Hi Andrew,

It's just the opposite I need!
I need the specifically 24.000fps (24p) setting.
The 23.976fps is already there, although all the presets says 23.98, the encoding results are 23.976, as it should.
Anyway, native 24fps is what we need.

Thanks a lot in advance!!!

Regards,
Arno
