CineForm’s Aspect HD and Connect HD Add Film-Editing Workflow Features To Support Sony HDV Camcorders
Posted Jun 7, 2005 Print Version     Page 1of 1

CineForm has announced that new versions of its HDV software editing products will offer special support for the progressive CineFrame modes in Sony's HDR-FX1 and HVR-Z1 HDV camcorders. Both Aspect HD 3.1 for Adobe Premiere Pro and Connect HD 1.7 can create a 24 fps progressive output file while ingesting footage shot in Sony's CineFrame modes. Both products are in production.

Sony's HDV camcorders offer special progressive modes called "CineFrame" which record progressive 24, 25, or 30 fps video sequences on tape using an interlaced MPEG-2 50i or 60i signal. However, if users desire film output at project completion, it is preferable to edit using a 24 fps workflow and not to use the interlaced tape format. The new features in CineForm's Aspect HD and Connect HD extract a 24 fps progressive sequence from Sony's CineFrame-24 or CineFrame-25 modes, which is then stored in CineForm Intermediate format. Users can edit the resulting files using Adobe Premiere Pro, Sony Vegas, or other AVI-compatible applications.

Aspect HD enables Adobe Premiere Pro to achieve real-time editing for HD post-production. According to CineForm, Aspect HD will edit up to four 1080i HDV streams simultaneously on a modern PC, including over 40 HD-optimized transitions, effects, and color corrections, plus graphic and title overlays. Aspect HD is built on patent-pending CineForm Intermediate software components including CineForm's post-production codec and CineForm's video effects and processing pipeline.

Connect HD includes the CineForm Intermediate codec to allow editing of HDV-resolution material in any Windows AVI-compatible application, with special optimizations for Sony Vegas 6. HDV I/O components are included to allow capture, export, and conversion of HDV footage external to video editing applications.

Aspect HD 3.1 and Connect HD 1.7 are available for purchase from CineForm's network of resellers or from CineForm's website at The retail price of Connect HD is $199; Aspect HD is $499. An Aspect HD 3.1 bundle that also includes Adobe Premiere Pro 1.5, Adobe Audition, and Adobe Encore DVD is priced at $799. Through June 10, CineForm is offering a promotional purchase price for Aspect HD to customers who first download the 15-day trial version, available from CineForm's website. Existing CineForm customers may upgrade to either Aspect HD 3.1 or Connect HD 1.7 without charge.
