cinextools is resolutions independent. If you’re using a raster independent codec like ProRes, it can be any non-standard resolution. 

MOV, OP1A MXF, OPATOM MXF, MP4

cineXtools support for Colorspace and bit depth depend entirely on the codec, but generally cineXtools supports YUV 8, YUV 10, RGB10 and RGB12.

On a related, but separate note, cineXtool supports HDR files, like ProRes XQ for insert, too. Like the insert support for codecs, cineXtools does colorspace conversions when inserting from source to target. So, a 10-frame RGB12 DPX sequence can be inserted to your YUV10 ProRes HQ file. For obvious reasons, we wouldn’t recommend you go from YUV8 to RGB12.

For PC, Windows 7 and higher

For Mac, Maverick OSX 10.9.5 and greater

There are no minimum hardware requirements for cineXtools. However the faster / better your hardware, the faster your inserts and rewrap processes. 

One important factor in the speed of cineXtools is where the file is located and network bandwidth. If your file is located on a busy network then the speed of insert and rewrap, particularly, may be slow. It’s always best to run cineXtools as “close” to your target file as possible.

cineXtools provides authorization codes for use on desktop environments. For more information, check out our user guides pages here.

FAQ and Getting Started

FAQ and Getting Started

You can also find training guides, videos and information on how to activate your license.

If you work in the Mac space, your Mac computer needs to be running OS X 10.9 (AKA Mavericks) or newer.

If you are in the Windows world, make sure your device is running Windows 7 x64 (64-bit) Service Pack 1 or newer.

A more powerful system will perform better when running CineXtools. But, because most real processing is for small bits of video and audio, the biggest factor is disk I/O for read and write.

You’ll see the best performance when you work on SSDs, particularly for the target drive. A fast local RAID or fast network storage on an 8 Gigabit or faster connection will help, too. Avoid working on devices such as a USB2 single platter spinning hard drive.

If you have any questions, please get in touch.

ProRes is a very common codec used to encode video file. Each frame gets compressed using a different amount of data and results in every frame being a slightly different size.

To do video inserts into a target file, each frame needs to be big enough for a maximum potential data overwrite.

The rewrap is a padding process and has no effect on the video essence and is very fast, much like a file copy.

Go here to learn more about the rewrap process.

Yes, cineXtools is available for both Mac and PC.

Both versions support the same features. Generally, you can use any Mac running OS X 10.9 (AKA Mavericks) or newer. You can also use any Windows system running Windows 7 x64 (64-bit) Service Pack 1 or newer.

No, there are no functional differences between the Mac and PC versions. Both versions support ProRes, as well.

ProRes Export Plugins are software components that make delivering ProRes files simpler. We partnered with various non-linear video editing software providers to develop them.

As a result, you can export an ‘insertable’ Padded ProRes file straight from the NLE of your choice. Forget about ProRes master file preparation delays.  You can apply audio, video, and closed caption insert-edits to your files immediately.

iLok License Manager must be configured for automatic discovery of network servers OR a config file needs to be generated by the iLok manager running the license server, and that config file copied to the local machine. In order for automatic discovery to take place, the Bonjour service needs to be running and set to automatic startup. Check that you have the server set for automatic discovery on the systems that won’t launch. 
 
 
The dialog is accessed via the file::preferences menu in the iLok manager.

Running cineXtools under virtual machines (VMs) is neither tested extensively nor officially supported because of known issues with features that rely on the graphics processor and other hardware in VM environments.

Use of cineXtools on a virtual machine (VM) is “at your own risk” and support will not be able to help with any issues.
