NeoScene is still available... Will NeoScene with Cineform codec be continued?
NeoScene will be continued, although it is off the front page of CineForm.com and will be deemphasized. It will back in the product matrix next week, and you can't still by it today.

You can directly upgrade NeoScene to CineForm Studio Premium for $170 -- it is a deal.

Re: New GoPro CineForm product line is out today.

One more thing... If I upgrade, will I be issued new serial? And will that serial be retroactive to previous versions of Neo? Reason I ask is if I need to go back and open projects in Premiere I created using Neo (without desktop mode), can I do it? Another words for whatever reason, will new serial work for old Neo?

The undated manual for Premium and Professional is being finalized, but we could wait any longer.

Currently other than spacebar for play, no other shortcuts, yet more are coming.

New serial are for new products only. Premium contains the same Premiere CS5.x support as Neo. Try it, no risk.

Re: New GoPro CineForm product line is out today.

David is there any "real" benefit to upgrading to GoPro CineForm Studio Premium from Neo at this point? Is it more than just a logo change? Was the black-out issue in Sony Vegas resolved?

Re: New GoPro CineForm product line is out today.

Yes there is real benefit.

Visual conversions, instead of running blind in HDLink and Remaster.
Trimming (set in and out points) before conversion.
Audio playback while editing Active Metadata.
Much easier access and controls over Vectorscopes, Waveforms and histograms.
Integrated MP4 for web exports.
Better overall stability.

Yes, Vegas issues are solved.

Re: New GoPro CineForm product line is out today.

I recently purchased Neo, do I need to do anything to get the free upgrade or is it just a case of uninstalling and installing GoPro Cineform Studio Premium?

Re: New GoPro CineForm product line is out today.

Do you have any price or update policy for prior users?

Since I purchased neo 3D Last april, a month before the new price policy in effect.

I was expecting to get extra licenses and complete GoPro 3D camera rig...

$49 a seat is the upgrade fee. If you didn't collect your bonus licenses back then, you can still do by contacting support@cineform.com, support will work out who you need to contact regarding cameras (we don't have any at the CineForm office.)

Re: New GoPro CineForm product line is out today.

OK.. installed it. I'm sold. Everything looks great. I like the new cleaner consolidated more responsive interface in Cineform Studio. This is much better than the separate FirstLight and HDLink interface. I still need HDLink though because there is no capture utility in Studio. I remember reading an older post that you guys wanted to phase it out and have either Blackmagic or Aja support it natively. I haven't heard or seen anything on their end so far, so I hope you guys keep HDLink around (regardless how ugly it looks) until they get a solution... If you guys decide to integrate capture feature here or within NLE support or just keep as is and change the look then that be great too.

As far as reverting back to old projects (from Neo 5.5.2), they open in Premiere only under "Desktop Mode". I can playback and scrub the timeline and everything seems normal. CF dissolves, transitions all seem to work fine as well. But am I missing something? Is there anything different underneath the hood without the CF preset? (i.e. CPU optimization, utilization, etc...)

I notice I got the yellow render lines again which I havent seen in a while but I know that's just cosmetic and not an issue. Overall, this is nice improvement. To keep my copy current at $49 and get the good ol support, that's a no brainer...

Re: New GoPro CineForm product line is out today.

Just thinking, regarding capture of HDV,
Is there any difference in capturing in Vegas, then converting to Cineform from the Vegas timeline.
as opposed to,
Capturing and converting with HD Link since HD link captures an M2T file first then converts it to Cineform?
Is there a quality difference?
Or is it just a time saver since the capture and convert is automated?
