This year’s round of new cameras all seemed to have a single common feature – recording in ProRes. Which is great for Mac users, however, Window’s NLE editors are left in a quandary of dodgy convertors and the like.
Luckily, Cinemartin, (who also have their own ProRes conversion software), have now announced the release of Cinemartin Cinec PLIN – a plugin for NLE editors that allow users to export to Prores and H.265 directly from the editor.
The plugin for Windows users will initially only be available for Adobe Premiere CS 5.5, CS 6.0 and Adobe Premiere Pro CC versions, however future upgrades will become available for Sony Vegas and Avid Media Composer.
Once installed, PLIN allows NLE users to export the sequence timeline (the master mix) directly to all flavors of Apple ProRes and to latest HEVC H.265 among others codecs.
On Adobe Premiere go to menu File → Export → Cinemartin Cinec Plin, will open the plugin
The plugin allow you to select ProRes 4444 or Prores 422 and HEVC H.265 as output codecs, select one or more, select the framerate, the aspect ratio and the resolution (supported up to 4K DCI compatible) and press Encode.
This plugin, part of the new recently released Cinec video converter family, also feature multi-cpu core processing, with up to 6 CPU-Cores.
The plugin will be released in May 2014 with pre-orders beginning from April 21st. Cinemartin PLIN, will be available in 3 versions, Standard, Professional and Gold (no pricing as yet).
