cineXinsert Tunes Up File-Based Post in Hollywood

Chainsaw’s chief engineer Jeff Sengpiehl remarked on this workflow, saying, “Our former process for creating a file deliverable was to use tape as a mezzanine format. We would layoff to tape from the editor in real-time, then encode the tape to a file. “For a program fix, we would punch changes to the tape, then re-encode the tape to a file. When you factor in QC, it could take several hours of work for a 1-hour TV show,” he said. read more

cineXinsert Can Save Your Delivery With One Simple Tool

cineXinsert does only one thing: inserts footage into an already completed Quicktime file. But if you need to do that, there’s no faster way.

If you are working on a long project on a tight deadline, clicking “File-Export” is always a bit nerve-wracking, no matter how many times you’ve watched through your timeline. Depending on your source material, you could potentially be looking at several hours to render out your final project, which will have to be entirely re-done if there is an error. Maybe the error is the computer’s, maybe it’s yours, but you’ll have to redo the whole export to fix it either way. read more…

New York, NY, April 7, 2017 – Cinedeck, developer of cineXtools and the cineXinsert engine, announced that cineXtools BASIC, a free version of their standalone insert-edit application will be releasing for NAB 2017. CineXtools is the world’s only true cross-codec, cross-wrapper insert editor for files allowing content producers to fix files instead of completely re-creating them.

“It’s always been part of our plan to introduce a free version of cineXtools. Being able to make edits to flat files is an extraordinary time saver with immediate measurable benefits for post-production workflows. File-based Insert Edit is a radical new workflow that everyone should be able to use, and now they can,” says Charles Dautremont, Cinedeck CEO. (read more)

New York, NY, April 7, 2017 – Cinedeck is proud to announce the availability of two free plugins developed with Avid and Adobe to support File-based Insert Edit workflows with ProRes files. The free plugins allow users to export constant bit rate ProRes files directly from Avid Media Composer and Adobe Premiere through Media Encoder. Cinedeck also worked with the Auto Desk team to realize direct CBR exports from their Flame, Lustre, Flare and Flame Assist applications. This means content producers that export from these systems can apply audio, video and closed caption insert-edits to their ProRes master files immediately, without any file preparation delays.

File-based Insert Edit is a patent-pending technology that allows users to overwrite new video, audio or closed captions to a flat file without a complete rewrap or re-render. With more than 80% of master files delivered to studios being ProRes, Cinedeck remains committed to developing tools to expedite ProRes finishing workflows. (read more)
