The Cineform Codec Rocks!

June 7, 2006

Yesterday we finally figured our how to use the overlay video feature of the Cineform codec. It is not as obvious as using the second monitor as external device in Premiere Pro HDV or Vegas projects. One has to setup the graphic card to run in "mirror" mode and configure the overlay settings. Then Cineform can place the overlay on the second monitor.

The quality of the codec is amazing and the realtime color correction filters are very nice - although a control for the Levels is missing.

If there is still anybody who is not using the Cineform codecs for your video productions, you should definitly consider to do so.
