Re: New GoPro CineForm product line is out today.

Hi, David. Exciting news! I'm looking forward to playing with the new interface, but I have a few questions for you before I jump in.

1. Are you rolling this out as a NEW product? What I mean is, will current users of NEO and NEO 3D have a free or paid upgrade path or will it be a full price purchase?

2. Since Firstlight is no longer stand-alone, can I upgrade in mid-project without causing problems with my current color grade?

3. Does the encoder allow for higher audio bit depth than 16bit yet? Ask Kevin about this. He might remember helping me through some 24bit audio problems I was having over a year ago. For archiving I'd love to see Cineform allow 24bit audio embedded with the video stream.

Thanks!

Chad

Re: New GoPro CineForm product line is out today.

Thanks for the update. I'll have to to try this out later today when I get home. Question though. I have not tried any of the betas and/or GoPro Cineform Studio (Neo user here) but with this change is HDLink capture functionality with Blackmagic/Aja still there? Also is this a required purchase upgrade for current users of Neo?

HDLink functions as it always did. Recent purchases for Neo or Neo3D (within 90 days) get upgraded for free, other upgrading from Neo to GoPro CineForm Studio Premium is $49 (same for Neo3D to GCSPro.)

Re: New GoPro CineForm product line is out today.

Do you notice HDLink looks so dated like a windows 95 application?

David, the price on the on-line store for upgrading from Neo to GoPro CineForm Studio Premium is $250. That is quite a difference to the price you announced.

Taky,

Yes HDLink was very dated, that is another reason it is being replaced by features within CineForm Studio Premium.

Lauri,

Select the product you would like to purchase at CineForm Inc

The select the product you have to do an upgrade from. Discounts will be applied.

Carlos, that is minus $250, so you only pay $49.

Has the activation process been changed/improved from NEO?

Re: New GoPro CineForm product line is out today.

David, I purchased my Neoscene about a year ago. Now if I want to upgrade from Neoscene to GoPro premium how much will cost me exactly? what options do I have?

Thanks
Matthew

Re: New GoPro CineForm product line is out today.

/* edit: Sorry, I mixed Neo and NeoScene.*/

NeoScene is still available... Will NeoScene with Cineform codec be continued?

Not today, it is the same as before right now. In a couple of week time there will be some improvements, particularly for managing upgrades -- we are test to new procedures internal now.
