Cinedeck Launches H.264 Beta Program
Cinedeck’s H.264 insert edit, available as a plugin for both Adobe Premiere and Avid Media Composer and within cineXtools, can cut down on the re-export cycles necessary when using H.264 files for review.
The company has launched a beta program to get a free 3-month license of H.264 insert for cineXtools and cineXplugins. Once you’ve redeemed your license, download the beta software for both cineXtools and cineXplugins. You will only be able to open and insert-edit to H.264 files with your beta program license. If you aren’t a paid subscriber you can get access to the rest of cineX here with a free 7-day trial license.
Just like the cineX ProRes workflow, you’ll need to create an insertable H.264 file. You can do so with your raster and bitrate using one of the free tools that cineX creates – a free H.264 export plugin, with cineX-Transcoder, a watchfolder-based transcode utility or within the cineXtools application itself.
Whether you’re creating a non-standard raster H.264 for VR, HDR-enabled H.264 for high-end film review or dozens of versions of H.264 viewing copies for various stakeholders, being able to insert edit to H.264 will save you a ton of time, energy and effort. The possibilities for H.264 insert edit are endless since it’s the “go-to” format for productions and projects of nearly any size and scope.
