cineXinsert Tunes Up File-Based Post in Hollywood

Chainsaw’s chief engineer Jeff Sengpiehl remarked on this workflow, saying, “Our former process for creating a file deliverable was to use tape as a mezzanine format. We would layoff to tape from the editor in real-time, then encode the tape to a file. “For a program fix, we would punch changes to the tape, then re-encode the tape to a file. When you factor in QC, it could take several hours of work for a 1-hour TV show,” he said. read more

CineXinsert Now Supports XDCAM for PC and Mac

Back in April of 2016 at NAB Show, Cinedeck announced the software-based, stand-alone, file-to-file insert edit application called CineXinsert. This is a very simple tool, but is incredibly powerful and something editors will think of as a lifesaver.

cineXinsert Can Save Your Delivery With One Simple Tool

cineXinsert does only one thing: inserts footage into an already completed Quicktime file. But if you need to do that, there’s no faster way.

Depending on your source material, you could potentially be looking at several hours to render out your final project, which will have to be entirely re-done if there is an error. Maybe the error is the computer’s, maybe it’s yours, but you’ll have to redo the whole export to fix it either way. read more…
