Magna Mana Production Bildbearbeitung GmbH, Germany, is proud to announce the release of ‘JPEG2000 for Nuke’, a plugin that allows reading and writing of DCI compliant JPEG2000 files in The Foundry Nuke, including high-speed color transformation from legal REC709 to DCI X’Y’Z’ color space.
The easy to use plugin allows you to set the desired target data rate and resolution. The plugin will not accept saving files with illegal resolutions and tell you so.
You can store JPEG2000 image files in 2K 24fps, 2K 48fps, 2K 3D 24fps and 4K 24fps format. The data rate can be adjusted up to 250 Mbit per second based on a percentage or Mbit/s.
JPEG2000 for Nuke was designed as a solution to use the transcoding power of a Nuke render farm in mind. Many companies in the post production field have such render farms in place and can now add JPEG2000 transcoding to their workflow without big investments in dedicated hardware or typically single workstation transcoding solutions.
JPEG2000 for Nuke files are perfectly compatible with our FinalDCP software, the easiest to use DCP encoding software ever, building an inexpensive way to high speed Digital Cinema Package (DCP) encoding for your facility. Depending on your storage, network and rendering infrastructure and type of source formats, you can easily scale your transcoding beyond realtime. Our ‘CineForm for Nuke’ plugin helps to reduce network bandwidth and streamline your post production pipeline.
JPEG2000 for Nuke is being developed strictly with a focus on real market needs. As a spin-off from the production and post production company Magna Mana, the software development, lead by the software engineering and workflow design team of Timm Baier and CTO Axel Mertes, shares the real knowledge from users every day problems.
JPEG2000 for Nuke cost Euro 200,00 per workstation license including a graphical user interface (GUI) and Euro 150,00 per Render Node license (without GUI). All prices are excluding VAT. All versions come with 1 year free updates. Both 32 bit and 64 bit versions are included. Demo versions and test licenses are available upon request.
