View Full Version : MainConcept 2.4.4 DV Codec??

Hi people!

For some reason the latest version of the (paid for) MainConcept DV codec is not available to the VT[3] - I have the type 1 and 2 codecs installed with VT[3] available (version 2.02.00) but not the 2.4.4 version. Aura VT and LightWave both see it but not the 'Toaster - what's up with that?

Just use DV Type 2. If you click on the 'c' configuration button, you will see the item properties indicate that is indeed the MainConcept codec.

Hi Paul,

Yep but that's not the 2.4.4 codec I've got installed - it's the same one as the Type 1 - v2.02.00. Any ideas why Aura, LightWave (and just about every other app on my PC) can use it but VT[3] can't??

Sure, that's simple, it's cause the MainConcept codec licensed by Newtek is hard wired into VT[3].

OK, but VT[3] still allows me to use additional codecs (such as DivX) so what you're saying is that VT[3] is deliberately ignoring the newer MainConcept codec 'cause the older one comes with it? I bought the MainConcept DV codec specifically for VT[2] and it'd be nice to use the latest version...

I agree. There should be a way of keeping up with the latest version. I would like to see it show up as it did in T2 in the list of codecs.
