Magna Mana Production Bildbearbeitung GmbH, Germany, is proud to announce the release of FinalDCP, a low-cost and simple to use one-click DCI compliant Digital Cinema Package (DCP) encoding software for Apple and Windows systems.
FinalDCP is intended for various markets, such as independent filmmakers and small production companies, who want to encode their unencrypted movies for theatrical presentation on festivals or cinemas, for advertising agencies or production companies delivering cinema trailers and commercials, for film teams to process dailies for theatrical review and for theater owners to encode their own trailers, signage, info screens or even local advertisement.
FinalDCP comes with the easiest interface available for DCP encoding ever. While being fully compatible with the Digital Cinema Naming Convention, the software has a drag’n’drop encoding mode, ideal for dailies and commercials. FinalDCP will automatically encode the content to JPEG2000, apply pull-down removal or timestretch when required, and create the final DCP. The easiest way to create DCPs on the market.
If that wasn’t enough, it allows direct conversion from AVI and Quicktime movies and camera formats such as SI-2K, CineDeck, RED R3D RAW, ARRI Alexa (via ProRes, later RAW) etc.. CineForm is supported in all flavors, including Stereo3D, making this the fastest way to produce 3D DCPs ever. You can even produce 3D dailies just by dragging CineForm Stereo3D files onto FinalDCP. More formats will be added over the coming months, including extensive RAW format conversion, making it the standard DCP dailies tool for any production. Clearly all 2K and 4K formats are supported.
If the embedded sound in your movie file isn’t quite right, it can be automatically rate converted to fit the DCI specifications, or you can replace it with separate audio files. Further FinalDCP takes already encoded MXF streams from previous encodings, or JPEG2000 streams which you can generate with our “JPEG2000 for Fusion” and “JPEG2000 for Nuke” plugins on a workstation or render farm (also available now).
While being so simple to use, FinalDCP has all it needs for a professional tool under the hood. Easy accessible buttons provide access to professional level conversion adjustments and allow full control over the final DCP.
An extensive road map will bring users many future enhancements to FinalDCP.
FinalDCP 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.
FinalDCP is available shortly after NAB for an introductory price of Euro 750,00 (later Euro 1.000,00). 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.
