as for HAP, its an oddball old codec and totally small niche. ya, its for some old creaky video playback hardware. well maybe its time the vendor for that hardware stepped up with a codec / encoder app to support their own hardware. its not like *they* didnâ€™t also know this was coming.. or get with apple to create a proper 64bit AVfoundation component to support their products. while weâ€™re at it, how about cinepak ? Mpeg1 ? h.263 ? sometimes you let the past be the past. you can always dual boot into an old flavor of OSX to encode it tooâ€¦
no - regarding Hap you got it all wrong Steve - it is a very new and super modern gpu decoded codec that are the defecto standard for realtime video playback for visual, video serves, mappings, etc.
They do have a proper 64bit AVfoundation component for their codec. and there are a windows version too. Diguise/D3 even recommendasthat codec for high res playback.
