We are running WTC 2008 and would like to add more codec support for MPEG2 and MPEG1 but currently it only supports quicktimes from the installation. Can anyone advise if this is possible as I am a newcomer to the app so looking for all the help I can get
There's no easy way to do this in your version. Some people have hacked the PHP scripts, but this is not really supported.
With the latest release of WiretapCentral (2010) just announced at NAB, you can edit an XML file to add/modify/remove presets to your heart's content. We have also provided additional presets, including an improved H264 export.
There are a ton of other features and enhancements, so be sure to check it out.
Encoding would indeed still work, but some of the other newer features (e.g. Import EXR/Red) would not. Note that I don't think we release WiretapCentral with v2008, so you must be talking about 2009, right?
Hi Dan I downloaded ages ago from Autodesk after they launched the app. We are running 2008 build0.90. Another thing is we do have problems with audio some times some clips just does not encode it and other clips do. Any thoughts on this?
Yes, there have been a couple of audio problems. To fix them definitively, you need to upgrade the flame installation to get the latest Wiretap server version. The workaround for now is to make use audio and video start from timecode zero.
Yes. It's the record TC that needs to be zero. WTC did not handle the offset very well in the first version (i.e. the one you have). There were two bugs ... one related to offset from zero and the other related to A/V offset. Support can probably identify the issues with each version and service pack.
