  4. Well certainly I can let you in on the hacktastic secret you can make ProRes on Windows without having a DVS Clipster or other 150k+ system. Little hacking but you can get it done with FFMpeg Not for the faint of heart http://tomellard.com/wp/2012/03/make-prores-video-on-a-pc/ http://ffmpeg.org/doxygen/trunk/proresenc_8c.html Follow and try at your own time and risk. It can be done and some limitations as far as reading in certain apps.
  5. Not to sure about that ProRes comment everything I have delivered or come across on set/post depending on camera package and edit spec is ProRes.(among DPX/EXR etc) If the edit house dictates DNxHD then they'll make them at the same time. Most of the the recorders I own or DP/DIT use are recording ProRes. Hell the most popular and most used format from Alexa is ProRes. Not one episodic shoot I know of in NYC/LA right now is not shooting ProRes for handing off to dailies team to archive and deliver. Not taking a dig at DNxHD its got its place just fine in Avid workflow but for all the base still on FCP 7 the others looking at Premiere Pro and over NLE's its still ProRes. Both Avid and Apple have a nice hefty fee to license ProRes to 3rd parties . And be aware each ProRes compliant device from recorder to app can vary . Apple doesn't write anything for the companies they adhere to Apple's spec which isn't always correct (QT Gamma and Color shift) Also that shiny cam Chris has can do more then even the HDSDI he has on it . ProRes via internal Alexa SXS recording does 12-bit 4:4:4 ProRes while HDSDI tops at 10-bit 4:2:2

  13. Have to say being on the beta and showing the plugins at both NAB and recent AENY meeting it is a huge time saver to stay within AE for 3D tracks. I have Kronos running on a 8 core Mac Pro with a GTX 285 and its pretty slick being able to check rendered retimes extremely fast. Jack and the team did a kick ass job on these plugins and I through them some really hard shots with alot of motion to see how well they would hold up.
