FinalDCP: Affordable and easy to use 2D & 3D DCP encoding software for everyone.
Magna Mana Production Bildbearbeitung GmbH, Germany, is proud to announce the release of FinalDCP Free Edition and FinalDCP, a low-cost and simple to use one-click DCI compliant Digital Cinema Package (DCP) encoding software for MAC OSX and Windows systems. Software development by the team of innovative pixel.
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, local advertisement or event content.
Easy to use
If you ever wanted really easy DCP creation, then FinalDCP is the tool of choice. 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 timestretch when required, and create the final DCP. The easiest way to create DCPs on the market.
Format support and camera dailies
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, DNxHD) etc.. GoPro CineForm codec 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) or using our Converter software, which also utilizes our network render engine.
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.
Compatible to theater systems
DCPs created with FinalDCP are tested and compatibel with servers such as from Doremi, Sony, XDC, Cube, GDC, Dolby, etc., as well as with projectors from Barco, Sony, Christie, NEC, etc.. 3D DCPs are compatible with the common RealD, XPAND and Dolby3D display solutions.
From users for users
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 Engineer Timm Baier, innovative pixel, and CTO Axel Mertes, shares the real knowledge from users every day problems.
While the RenderManager needs to run on a fixed, node locked machine in the Commercial Edition, SpeedPack RenderNodes and FinalDCP are floating among your network, even between MAC OSX and Windows machines. This allows for maximum freedom during production.
You should use MAC OS X 10.7 or higher for FinalDCP. Earlier versions of the MAC OS may not work together with FinalDCP.
FinalDCP FREE Edition
As a starting point for everyone interested we provide FinalDCP FREE Edition. This isn’t just a demo, but a fully featured Freeware DCP encoding software. It can run on a single computer or make use of your entire network with unlimited network rendering nodes. As a fair deal it superimposes a transparent sponsoring logo in the lower right of your footage and does not accept pre-encoded JPEG2000 or JPEG2000 MXF files. Just register and download the software for Windows or MAC OSX now. We strictly recommend to check out the FinalDCP FREE Edition before buying one of the other packages, so you can verify it fits your needs.
