Cinema Craft Encoder SP3 188.8.131.52 Setup Key
The autorun feature of the setup program will help you. Your DVD/BD or the AVCHD files you create will be mounted (to e.g. the Music folder). With the DVD mounted, put the Pro Disc and run the setup program. The setup will launch in a new window, open the buttons in the toolbar and position them where you want them. Click on the Output column in the “Create DVD/BD menu” window, and then click on the “Apply settings” button. You can also save the settings to the registry.
When it comes to color grading, it is important to realize that each color space has its own look. It is easier to explain this with grading than to just compare them straight off, as the differences are nuanced. The purpose of most cinema color grading work is to achieve the best picture quality while minimizing color casts as much as possible. Different color spaces have their own purpose with their own color casts. There are two basic cinema cameras: Arri Alexa and Blackmagic Cinema. The first has a CCD sensor inside and offers “DCI” color. The Blackmagic Cinema camera offers “ProRes” color, which is a custom color space developed by Apple.
For our example, we will use the first 5 ID numbers as external links, for the sixth ID, we will add an empty one if we dont need to use it. Now that we have our required information in IMDbs field, back to the cinema project manager. Go to the Programs section and select a suitable format for your DCP. The “Video Information” panel has a variety of default values, but I usually make the following changes:
- Output File Format: ProRes Proxy
- Video Bitrate: 2500k
- Aspect Ratio: 4:3 (Why not 16:9? because DCPs can be stretched to any aspect ratio, its the only way they can be compatible with the digital cinema projection systems that use the DCI colour space!)
- Video Framerate: 25p
well its off to the cinema, but it is worth mentioning that the dcp needs to be rendered in the cinema and that is where the cinema craft suite comes in. if you load your dcp into the cinema suite you can use the cinema suite to transcode your dcp. thats one of the reasons i use the cinema suite. with the new dcp codec it is possible to do very high quality dcp encoding and even to compress your dcp to a lower bitrate. this results in a more playable video on dvd, on your play station or perhaps even to your telephone.
the choice of encoder to use in cinema suite is simply your choice. i have used the x264 encoder and hcenc as my main choice. there is no one encoder that is the best and this is purely personal choice. you could also use a h264 encoder. what i suggest is that you use the x264 or hcenc and use the new features of this encoder. the new encoder is called hcenc 0.24 and its is available seperately from the cinema suite. if you use this you will need to remove the blenders ffmpeg component and use hcenc instead. you may want to look at the cinema suites optional features to see if it has what you are looking for.
after you have chosen your encoder, i then select the correct settings in the cinema suite. in this case i want to transcode my dcp to 2k with vimeo quality settings and an output file size of 100mb. if you wish to reduce the quality to 720p, simply change the settings.
so the first thing to consider is what settings to use. i would suggest to use the highest quality settings available. this is the digital cinema standard and should get you the best quality. if you are adding an 8 frame pre-roll, use the same settings, if your edit is over 2 seconds, use the same settings.
