Exporting from videoQC

videoqc logo 3smallSome versions of videoQC include the ability to re-wrap, convert and export all or parts of files they are playing.  This article explains how to set up profiles, set start and end points, and export to new files, using videoQC

videoQC File Export

To export a file, or part of a file, from videoQC, you will first need to open it.  Once it is opened in the player, select the "export media" menu.

vqc exportmenu

This will bring up the 'Export Media' dialog

vqc exportmediadialog

This lets you set the start and end position as absolute time, or by time code. To use time code, click on the Absolute label and change it to one of the available time code types. The first and last frames will be displayed in the two thumbnails. These can be set by dragging the white lines at the front and back of the blue progress bar, or by going to the location in the player and clicking the 'set in' or 'set out' buttons. The area to be exported can be played with the preview button, and optionally, different audio or closed caption files can be substituted.

To start the actual conversion or re-wrap process, click on the process label.  If you you have already made presets, you can select one and the conversion will begin in the background.  If you have not created any profiles, you can create them with 'Edit Profiles'.

From here you can make a new profile, or edit previous profiles, by clicking the Create button

When you click 'OK', the new profile will be added and selected so you can add conversions to it.  This will also be the profiles' name in the process menu.  To add a conversion to a profile, click the '+' button

vqc exportconversionoptions

This dialog allows you to set a target directory and the kind of conversion you want. Below is the profile dialog after adding an MXF XDCam and MP4 Proxy conversion to it. In this case, when you select this profile, it will create both and MP4 and MXF from the original file

Once the profile editor is closed, the new profile(s) will show up in the process menu.  Selecting it will cause the conversions to start.
