High Performance Codec

With the DXV 3 Codec you can mix more video layers on a higher resolution than any other codec. How? By doing all the hard work on the hardware that does it best: the video card.

Easy to Use

DXV comes with just a few settings that are designed to deliver maximum performance with minimal loss of quality. Let the codec do the thinking so you can do the mixing.

QuickTime

Tested apps include: Apple Compressor, Adobe Media Encoder, MPEG Streamclip, Quicktime Pro, Final Cut Pro, Motion, Adobe After Effects, Premiere, Sony Vegas, Cinema 4D, 3D Studio Max and Maya. 

Alpha Channel

The DXV codec can also store an alpha channel. This is essential for preserving transparency in complex video compositions.
