There were some hiccups when we first got the software, but we worked out the kinks and it’s been pretty solid ever since.
Now our compositor has added the program to his arsenal – and it’s paying off once again.
Before incorporating CineForm, our VFX team gave our editor ProRes videos. They would then to be transcoded into CineForm files and muxed – two extra steps for our editor for each video every single time.
Now, he can read, write and export CineForm 3D files in Adobe After Effects, and deliver them – already muxed – directly to the editor.
Our compositor, Jakub Kuczynski, on the CineForm workflow:
On how it helps the 3D editing process – mixed files, compatibility with Final Cut Pro, and high visual fidelity compression:
And on how it benefits the 3D compositor:
The gist: there just isn’t anything else on the market that’s priced right and gets the job done like CineForm – in edit and in VFX.
And in this 3D business, any step taken to reduce time and increase workflow is a step in the right direction.
