Tip #691: Compare Post-Production Codecs
Compare Cineform, DNx, ProRes, DPX and Uncompressed; all in one table.
This tip, written by David Kong, first appeared in Frame.io Insider. This is a summary.
The team at Frame.io pulled together a list of more than 50 of the most common intermediate codecs used in video post-production, so that you can compare codecs against each other.
This covers intermediate codecs, not camera codecs. Each company publishes their own specifications in different formats, but they scoured the Internet and brought them all into a single page. If you want to compare ProRes vs DNxHD, ProRes vs Cineform, DNxHD vs. DPX, or any other combination, this table can help you choose the right codec for your next project.
