POST PRODUCTION
WORKING WITH RECORDED FILES
There are numerous post systems and NLEs that can read natively the various file formats recorded by
the Odyssey. Some NLEs may require plug-ins in order to read certain file formats. Blackmagic Design
Resolve software is available for free and can read all formats recorded by the Odyssey.
FILE STRUCTURE
APPLE PRORES SUPPORT
The Odyssey can record in Apple ProRes 422 (HQ), Apple ProRes 422 and Apple ProRes 422 (LT)
compressed codecs. This allows for high quality recording while avoiding high data rates of working with
uncompressed video.
