I admit I am not fully getting your idea then. I want the output as
same video file.
If I export as images then it is just a folder with images. Yes they
will be not changed,
but if I want them back in a DNxHD video file, how can I guarantee
that the information
will be not changed due to compression? Do you mean this is possible somehow to
put the images back in video file without touching the image information?
