4K Online & Finishing with cineXinsert

It can require 4x the bandwidth, 4x the amount of storage, 4x the rendering time and 4x the export time, as compared to HD. Not to mention potentially requiring more hardware and more labor that makes delivering high resolution shows costlier and less profitable. But 4K is the new reality; and whether we like it or not, it’s an expected resolution for delivery.

cineXinsert provides a path for making 4K/UHD deliverables easy for DNxHR and Pro Res deliverables. Here’s a sample workflow:


The result is that you would only export your 4K file once and use cineXinsert to punch fixes or changes to your file. And, you can insert audio or video in your file as many times as want with no file degradation.

cineXinsert is a resolution independent companion application for NLEs to be used in the post finishing process. Perhaps one of the best features about cineXinsert is that your source (content that you’re inserting) can be a DNxHR and your target (the file you’re inserting to) can be Pro Res. That is, the source and content codec don’t need to match because cineXinsert will decode the source file and re-encode to match the target file. If you’re an Avid editor, this means that you can take advantage of Media Composer’s efficiency in exporting a native codec like DNxHR to make picture fixes to your 4K Pro Res deliverable.
