A Do-It-Yourself Guide to adding CineForm support in Adobe CC (Mac)

Later this summer, GoPro will be releasing new versions of their software products which will include the custom CineForm file importer, exporter and sequence presets for Adobe Premiere Pro CC. In the meantime, here’s a DIY guide to copying the necessary files from a CS5, CS5.5 or CS6 installation into CC.

NOTE: This will only work if you have an existing CS5, CS5.5 or CS6 installation and with the corresponding CineForm Plugins already installed. These plugins are included in the GoPro CineForm Studio Premium and Professional download package. The following instructions assume you are using CS6. If you’re using CS5 or CS5.5, replace “CS6” in the folder paths mentioned with the version that you are actually copying from.

1. Copying the Plugins

In Finder, browse to the following folder on your main Macintosh HD (not your user folder):

Library/Application Support/Adobe/Common/Plug-ins/CS6/MediaCore

In that folder path, you should see a folder called “CineForm”.

Copy the “CineForm” folder and paste it into to:

Library/Application Support/Adobe/Common/Plug-ins/7.0/MediaCore

 2. Copying the Editing Modes

In Finder, browse to the following folder:

/Applications/Adobe Premiere Pro CS6

Right-click on the “Adobe Premiere Pro CS6” application icon and select “Show Package Contents” from the context menu.

Then browse to:

/Contents/Settings/Editing Modes

Copy the “CineForm 2D Editing Modes.xml” and “CineForm 3D Editing Modes.xml” files and paste them into the equivalent Adobe Premiere Pro CC folder.

3. Copying the Sequence Presets

In Finder, browse to the following folder:

/Applications/Adobe Premiere Pro CS6

Right-click on the “Adobe Premiere Pro CS6” application icon and select “Show Package Contents” from the context menu.

Then browse to:

/Contents/Settings/SequencePresets

Copy the “CineForm” folder and paste it into the equivalent Adobe Premiere Pro CC folder.

4. Copying the Sequence Preview Formats

In Finder, browse to the following folder:

/Applications/Adobe Premiere Pro CS6

Right-click on the “Adobe Premiere Pro CS6” application icon and select “Show Package Contents” from the context menu.

Then browse to:

/Contents/Settings/EncoderPresets/SequencePreview

Copy the ” F2F29742-405F-46a8-A0F2-965E2C1CD12d” and “F2F29742-405F-46a8-A0F2-965E2C1CD13D” folders and paste it the equivalent Adobe Premiere Pro CC folder.

5. In the MediaCoreQTCodecRulesCC.xml file, add the following to the CFHD entries:

deepdecodefourcc='b64a'

    Hi,

    I want to install CineForm codec and add it to my Adobe Media Encoder CS6 on both Mac and Win. It works well in my Windows7 PC, but doesn't work in my iMac at all.

    On Win after I install GoProStudioPremium-2.0.0.285.exe, I can find folder “CineForm” at the .../Common/MediaCore/. When I open Adobe Media Encoder I can see the two new formats "CineForm AVI File" and "CineForm MOV File".

    I did the same on iMac. I tried to install GoProStudioPremium-2.0.0.237-130.dmg on a very clear environment (only Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 and AME CS6 installed), but after installation no “CineForm” folder was created at Library/Application Support/Adobe/Common/Plug-ins/CS6/MediaCore. At the same time I couldn't find the CineForm related formats in AME as well. I also tried with GoProStudio-2.0.0.237-130.dmg and GoProStudioPro-2.0.0.237-130.dmg and got the same results. Besides, I can find "GoPro" icon at "Other" part in the System Preference.

    Could anyone tell me why I didn't install the codec successfully? I need to deal with it as soon as possible. Thanks a lot!

    Best,

    Lin

    The top post says end of summer.  Is the cc version coming any time soon?  Been waiting.

    It's been ten months since this post, and I still don't see any preset in Premiere CC... Considering that I don't have CSanything installed, I also don't have a source to copy those files from.

    Suggestions?

    We are not adding the sequence presets for CC at this time, however, you can simply drag a CineForm mov file to the new sequence icon and that will create a sequence with the proper settings.
