CINEFORM RELEASES LOW-COST AVCHD/HDV EDITING APP
With the announcement, CineForm is extending its pro compression workflow technology to a new consumer application for the Mac platform, allowing users to easily edit video with extremely high performance and with high image quality. Neo Scene is one of the first Mac solutions with file-based support for AVCHD source media.
Neo Scene converts highly-compressed video sources into easy-to-edit and higher quality CineForm QuickTime (.MOV) files. CineForm .MOV files are compatible with most QuickTime applications, including Final Cut Pro, iMovie, Motion, Premiere Pro and After Effects.
During file conversion, Neo Scene can optionally convert source material into 24p (NTSC) or 25p (PAL) CineForm Mac Codec files for projects that desire a cinematic look. While most cameras can record in 24p, users cannot edit in 24p because of the way the data is organized in the native compressed file. Neo Scene provides users with a tool for effectively editing 24p content.
Pricing for Neo Scene is $129. CineForm released a Windows version of Neo Scene in January.
