Cinemartin has always been about giving filmmakers editing on Windows machines, the same workflow as Mac users. So this new plugin does the same as what its Premiere Plin plugin does.
Basically, the Plin AE plugin allows Windows users to export their compositions or clips as either ProRes or 4K HEVC H.265 files.
Once installed, when you’re ready to export your composition, instead of adding it to the Render Queue, you hit File –> Scripts –> AE Plin, which will launch the main interface of the AE Plin Plugin. You then choose how you’d like to export the clip.
Cinemartin has said that when encoding to H.265 the file size is reduced incredibly. When testing they found a ProRes 4K 500mb file was reduced to only 5mbs when encoded to H.265. You can expect the same quality as Cinemartin’s H.265 Bluray ripping tool, an example of which is pictured below.
Price and Availability
The company has a number of different pricing options from around US$120 (for a non-commercial student licence) to US$750 (for the upgraded Gold version & a year of updates).
You can download a demo of the plugin and find more info on the Cinemartin website: www.cinemartin.com/cinec/plin
