Pwolf wrote:Just because it can handle h264 out of a camera doesn't necessarily mean it will work just fine with other encodes. I would still suggest converting to lossless rather than just re-muxing into mp4. Never assume that it will work perfectly because there's a lot more to consider than just the codec being used.

But seriously, just because something works doesn't mean it's optimal. Using lossy non intra-only sources to edit is not fast, nor reliable, and I don't see what's the point in making the editing experience a slow and painful one when you could just load blazingly fast utvideo clips and just enjoy the smooth editing afterwords. But hey, not everybody can be a pitcher, so I ain't stopping who likes it the other way.

Really, I wanna see that. Oh, and no cheating. Don't make those avc encodes intra-only or with otherwise editing-optimized settings, that defies the purpose (since it's going to be a valid editing choice anyway, but it's not what you get out of the box with fansubs or BDs).
