Hey everyone - running into a large issue related to my video editing and VJ workflow.
Ive been using the HAP codec for years now while running VDMX. I have also simultaneously been taking those exported HAP videos and importing them into Adobe Premiere Pro editing sequences.
Ever since Apple and more specifically Adobe have dropped HAP support - its been more and more challenging trying to maintain this workflow.
Earlier this year I finally upgraded my system from a 2012 MBP to the new 2021 Macbook Pro M1 Max.
I just recently realized that I was still running an Intel based version of Premiere Pro on my M1 MBP - I fully upgraded to latest versions of Premiere, and now none of the HAP clips will connect in my sequences. I even tried installing a trial of “AfterCodecs” - but this seems to only allow me to export HAP, not get HAP to show up in Media Browser, or be able to import HAP clips.
Thankfully I have found a temporary workaround - where I can open up the Intel version of Premiere and HAP works. So it appears as if the issue is the M1. But long term - id like to use the native version of M1 in Premiere instead of the Intel version.
MY MAIN QUESTION:
Is there a better codec now to use for VDMX than HAP? Cause id really like to keep editing with my VDMX exports instead of having to export a ProRes version of my visuals for Editing, and a HAP version for VDMX
Any input would be GREATLY appreciated :)
