Cineform Free Codec for H264 Cameras (eg GoPro or DSLR)

  • http://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthread.php?t=1027848
    • David Newman of cineform just announced that cineform codec will be free for canon users.
    • Their 3d tool for the GoPro 3d system is getting re-released to be compatible with all cameras, from what I gather. It’s already free, though: http://gopro.com/3d-cineform-studio-software-download/ — and for free, for any H.264 .mp4 footage, you can:
      • • Transcoding to GoPro CineForm codec
      • • Frame-rate adjust for slow motion
      • • Exposure
      • • Contrast
      • • Saturation
      • • Color Temperature
      • • Image flip rotation
      • • Frame Resize (Up-res/Down-res)
      • • Cropping and zoom
    • So if you take your 5d/7d/whatever footage and convert to .mp4 you can then convert to cineform using this free tool already.

    • Recently, it was announced that GoPro had acquired Cineform, and would be utilizing their tech in a 3D camera. We dropped by the Cineform booth at NAB 2011 to talk to David Newman about this change for Cineform, and how that affects their pro users.

    • The GoPro CineForm Studio is FREE to download.
    • Software is only available for Windows XP, Vista and 7 and Mac Snow Leopard 10.6.3 – 10.6.8. See complete list of System Requirements.
    • To use the 3D convergence features of this software, all imported files must be created with a GoPro camera.
    • The following features will work with any H.264 compressed .mp4 file created with most other cameras however GoPro does not guarantee compatibility:
      • Transcoding to GoPro CineForm codec
      • Frame-rate adjust for slow motion
      • Exposure
      • Contrast
      • Saturation
      • Color Temperature
      • Image flip rotation
      • Frame Resize (Up-res/Down-res)
      • Cropping and zoom
    • I successfully downloaded both Windows and Mac versions, in each case once I had entered my details.

    Althought the new GoPro Cineform Studio release will allow diret import of MOV files and conversion into Cineform codec, my experience was that those same files cannot be imported back into GoPro Cineform Studio for processing as a 3D pair.
