8k output resolution job restrictions

When your MediaConvert job has outputs with 8k (8192x4320) resolutions, your job is restricted in these ways:

  • You can't create Dolby Vision outputs.

  • You must send your job to an on-demand queue. Reserved queues can't run 8k jobs.

Preserving 4:4:4 Chroma sampling

When your MediaConvert job has Apple ProRes outputs that need to have 4:4:4 chroma subsampling preserved, your job is restricted in these ways:

  • You can only use the NexGuard File Maker preprocessor.

  • You must use the Duplicate Drop as the frame rate conversion algorithm when using frame rate convesion.

  • You cannot mix RGB and non RGB inputs.

  • You cannot mix 4:4:4 inputs with non 4:4:4 inputs.
