cineform HD encoding - now free??? no more need for NEOPLAYER?

Is this true? no more need for neoplayer?
Where should I be directing my clients to download the codec that allows the free encoder?

Re: cineform HD encoding - now free??? no more need for NEOPLAYER?

gah.. wish I'd known about this!

Can it encode to 720p, 1920p and 2048p... or restricted to certain resolutions?

I have 2048x856 cineform RAW footage to work with, and will need to be rendered out of the NLE... or should I be converting this to something else?

thanks!

I heard neo is being discontinued... so is the road map clear for what is going on?

Is there any formal news blast/postin explaining what is going on with the product line?

All this has been said many times. Neo is becoming CineForm Studio Premium. Just a name change, licenses transfer. Purchase as normal.

It may have been said many times before, but I don't see a single post about it in the forum. Could you Create a STICKY at the top as an ANNOUNCEMENT... I'm sure other users would appreciate this, and would avoid you being pestered by having to tell people that you've answered this question before.

I was talking press releases, interviews, PR in general covered this at NAB. We always migrate product licenses, so not need for a sticky, nothing really has changed. When Studio Premium is ready, then the web site will reflect that.

I use CineForm Studio with my GoPro 3D but it only converts mp4, not other file types.

David, will CineForm Studio Pro have the file trimming feature? This has been on my CineForm wish list forever and I really appreciate this in CineForm Studio.

Visual file trimming before conversion is coming for other cameras when we move Neo under the Studio name and it tools.

De-activation Re-activation Cineform HTTP 500 failures

Hi Folks!
Can anyone tell me what is going on with the Cineform.com site. Tech notes, Tech Blog, Updates are all coming up with HTTP 500 internal errors. Hope this isn't a sign of things to come since the GoPro take over!
