New Windows betas for NeoScene, Neo & Neo3D: Build 5.5.4.332, released 12-August-2011

Sorry for the delay for this beta release, we have been incredible busy working the next generation of tools. This build is mostly several long-awaited patches to 5.5.2. If this build looks good, we will switch to this as a main release shortly.

Build 5.5.4.332, released 12-August-2011
Enhanced FirstLight pick and clip white balance selection (more accurate.)
Enhanced encoding quality and bit-rate with some minor tweaks
Enhanced compatible for DPX source used by DPX2CF.exe
Fixed CS5.5 Multi-cam plays green with Mercury enabled
Fixed upscale within HDLink, rounding errors produced artifacts.
Fixed quantization error on the left edge of SD 720 4:2:2 encodes.
Fixed 4:2:2 720x480 output to RGBA32, small chroma issues on the right edge
Fixed HDLink conversion of Sony MTS files with static hissing on audio tracks
several other minor items

Anyone with a report yet? Did we break anything?

Installed and basic functions all OK. Haven't had a chance to try anything more challenging (Neo)

Hi David,
With this build, i cannot export the timeline to CF avi. Render Dialog box opens and close immediately.

timeline is CF preset 1080i 25 with only two clips.
clips are 1080i 25i/s

can you confirm ?
thanks

Is it possible to convert Red Epic 5K R3D files to 1080?

Neo and Neo3D have a shell tool for R3D conversions that can scale to any size.

"Build 5.5.4.332, released 12-August-2011 - Fixed CS5.5 Multi-cam plays green with Mercury enabled"

I can confirm that this seems to work now (finally got around to testing it, albeit briefly, last night).

Thanks Cineform for fixing this annoying bug in Neo.

David.


Sorry the feedback is so long to come. I tried this new build and it has fixed my proxy problem it seems.

I had been putting it off until another project was complete however was forced to re-install PP5 and Neo when Windows 7 lay down and I had to chase an old restore point which dumped my updates.

I have revised the Neo3D and Neo links above, the files have the same name as before with a few subtle changes. The build had DPX2CF, CF2DPX & R2CF component that where requesting a library that many users didn't have. There is a tiny patch to CStyle curves, fixing a Saturation bug. NeoScene is unchanged, as CStyle is for FirstLight users and it doesn't have DPX and R3D tools.

Thank you for this updated update of Neo.

I was trying to batch convert RED files and suddenly couldn't do it anymore.
For a few painful days I thought it was on my side, doing something wrong but couldn't tell what it was.

But now it's working again.

Cheers

Peter

hm, yes you're right. I just tried to edit one of my post's subject lines. Must have that feature locked out on this forum.

Well, for future, whenever a new build is released, can you make a new post, with build number and release date on it (and if you update that release, start a new thread?)

Much appreciated and you'll probably get quicker feedback from people who may not have realized that the build was updated buried in a previous thread.

cheers,
