Thank you so much Leo for posting that link. I just bought a GH1 and Premiere wouldn't play the files. Thanks to CineForm I could edit the files, but no audio. Once I installed what you linked to everything has worked great. I can't believe it was that easy!

Biggest reason for Cineform: Intermediates

I have looked and can't find anything else that works as well at maintaining quality, being small in compressed size and fast enough to use to edit in an NLE.

If anyone knows better please tell me, but I have looked and come up blank.

For the sake of others who may stumble on to this thread who are having files convert without audio, the new builds (posted 9/11/2009: Weekend Betas) include better support for AAC audio decoding/transcoding.

AC3 decoding will still require third party decoders. Many NLEs and media players will come with these components that CineForm can leverage. For systems in which they are absent, AC3filter is still our recommended tool as it is free and effective.

If true, please god add 1080p to 720p downrezzing capability to Scene. It's the last thing holding me back from purchasing Scene for my 5D2 workflow.

Why wouldn't you want to keep the full resolution until you do you the final output from you editor and then resize to the desired target resolution? There benefits to doing so.

Scaling is a feature of Neo HD. Though I'm of the same philosophy of Jim... maintain the highest quality through post and scale at the end.

Because for me and my use it's good enough.

I'm having the audio issue with NeoScene as well. Using NeoSceneV137b124-091002.

Have installed AC3 filter as recommended as well as uninstalled and re-installed Vegas pro 9.

What do you use for your NLE? In vegas, you can automate the proxy editing method with proxystream script. This is what I use from time to time just to cut down on the file size for less important video. I backed up everything (including the intermediates) so file size is something I also look out for.

I usually use neoscene/cineform as a codec ( vs using cineform neoscene as a tool). I load the h.264 into the timeline then render it back out with cineform codec. That way I bypassed some of the issues that neoscene converting tool is having. I do this with scripts to minimize touch labor.

In a big picture, the cost of cineform codec is low enough that it became a nobrainer to get. You can have a fast enough computer to review 5Dmk2 video in full resolution real time but try that with the duplicated layer sharpening method and you won't be able to do that.
