 Notes

  •  MRWS = All MediaReactor Workstations, WSAvid = MediaReactor Workstation for Avid, LiteAvid = MediaReactor Lite for Avid, WSAdobe = MediaReactor Workstation for Adobe, LiteAdobe = MediaReactor Lite for Adobe
  • CineForm and Avid DNxHD file formats requires an optional license.
  • If the MediaReactor Workstation trial is installed on macOS, you will have to re-install the CSP to get those formats back after the trial.  In Windows the CSP and trial can co-exist.
  • MediaReactor Workstation for Autodesk is read-only, and does not provide additional write formats
