Real-Time Engine for Final Cut Pro

 

We’re enthused to announce that we are now shipping a real-time engine for Final Cut Pro as part of all CineForm “Neo” Mac products: Scene/HD/4K/3D.  We consider this a Beta Release for now beginning in version 2.4 Build 119.  (Neo Scene v1.10 Build 31).
The RT engine allows multiple-stream playback including through all normal FCP transitions, filters, and effects that you would expect with ProRes. The sub-message is: “no rendering”.
We have implemented the engine as an option within the CineForm System Preferences panel, so you can turn the engine ON or OFF. OFF is the default mode. To turn the RT engine ON do the following after installing the appropriate Neo product:
1. Open the CineForm System Prefs pane
2. Click on the Performance tab
3. Check the box for the RT Enabler. (Deselect it to turn the RT engine OFF).
NOTE: When FCP starts with the CineForm RT engine, it will display a dialog indicating that a non-standard enabler is found and that some parts of the sequence may be marked in blue.  This is simply informational and you can click OK.
In the sequence select “Unlimited RT”, “Dynamic” video quality, and deselect “Multiclip Playback” (unless you are using it.)
Known Issue: The only known issue we are currently aware of is that Neo3D will not play out dual-link stereo when the RT engine is enabled. We’re still looking into this. For dual-link stereo you will need to disable the RT engine. Comments please!
NOTE: We updated the trial security layer.  This means that even if you have installed a CineForm product previously that expired, you can reinstall and have a new trial.  (This is true for Neo HD/4K/3D but not for Neo Scene).
