Do you need Cineform NeoSCENE?

One of the most useful PC video tools available today is Cineform’s NeoSCENE utility. It acts both as a converter to an easier-to-edit-than-h.264 format, and it can remove pulldown off of PF24 (24p-wannabe) streams. Here’s the break down, helping you decide if you must invest on the tool or not. VideoGuys have a sale on the item, saving you $30 (this is not an endorsed link btw, just a heads up).

Altho’ … if you plan on carrying on to do stuff where you need good-high-quality intermediates (for color correction, effects etc) then you might well need it for all those “don’t need it” scenarios. Depends what “need” means, I suppose.

And not to beat a dead horse, but if you use Premiere on a Mac – Neoscene does not work – which is a pity because I think NeoScene is great

Thank you for the link and that is one hell of a great FLOW CHART. I would love to use it on our site to help our customers understand Cineform better.

BTW we just sent out a Cineform email blast to our customers. You can see it here.

What are the differences between converting to .mxf 35mbps or 50mbps versus NeoScene?

MXF is just a container, not a codec. And 35mbps of any codec is not lossless, and not necessarily fast to edit. Cineform guarantees that.
