  • Under the “Available” tab, you should see the new license.
  • Right-click on the license and activate to your system or drag & drop

Watch the plugins tutorial for MC here:

A QuickStart guide for the plugins will be forthcoming shortly.

In the meantime, please follow these simple instructions to start using cineXplugins:

  • For the Media Composer plugin, create a ‘dummy’ project that matches your insert target’s colorspace, framerate and timecode. **The original project and related bins aren’t necessary to use cineXplugins.
  • For a video insert, create a second video layer. This layer will be the source for insert. **Just like cineXtools, the insert source can be anything (DPX sequence, DNxHD/HR OpAtom, etc…) as long as the colorspace and framerate match the target, even if the target’s codec is something like XDCAM, ProRes or XAVC.
  • Select in and out points for your source material.
  • cineXplugins inserts the source on the monitored video layer. If your insert source is on V2, make sure you have your V2 layer selected.
  • Go to File>Export>AMA Export
  • In the AMA Export tool, select “Cinedeck Insert” as the export profile.
  • Make sure the following boxes are checked/unchecked:
  • Then select “OK”, which will then open a window for you to select the target file to insert to.
  • Once you’ve selected the target file, the insert edit will be triggered and you’ll see a progress bar showing you that the insert is happening.

Tips:

  • You can monitor your inserts with VLC (or any other player) while it’s overwriting the new frames in your flat file.
  • You can insert Audio and Captions along with your video or separately. However, the tracks, whether empty or not, have to be present in the target file. Make sure to select the appropriate tracks for the input source when doing Audio or Captions inserts.
  • If your source timecode doesn’t match the target’s timecode, you can always type it in. Under “In point type”, select “Custom Timecode” instead of “Match Timecode” and type in the timecode where you’d like the source to be inserted in your target file. You will still need to select in and out points in your timeline.

All cineX licenses only work with iLok License Manager 4.XX.

If you are getting the following error message “cineXplugins has stopped working”, please update your iLok License Manager.

Prores Pad plugin

Please download the appropriate cineXplugin to access the free ProRes Pad plugin. If you don’t have a cineXplugins license, you will only have access to the ProRes Pad export setting. 

You’ll be using the release software for the insert-edit plugins. If you don’t have a valid license, the plugin will only allow you to export an insert-editable ProRes file from Avid MC or Adobe Pr.

ProRes export is only available for PC for the Adobe Premiere plugin. This is because Apple and Adobe now have an agreement to allow ProRes to be exported on the PC platform. 

Make sure to delete all markers before exporting using Cinedeck’s AMA ProRes Exporter. Not deleting the markers prior to exports sometimes causes audio corruption where the marker is located for the last track of audio in your file. We are working address this issue in the next release.

1) Export to a ProRes file without flattening your sequence.
2) Cinedeck’s ProRes AMA Exporter is 30% ~ 35% faster than Avid’s native ProRes exporter.
3) You can use the ProRes VBR Pad export plugin with Premiere on PC.
