Cineform NeoScene Version 5 is a software file-conversion program designed especially for the legions of professional and serious amateur videographers who've ever feared for how their HDV footage would hold up once effects were applied, or wondered whether an MTS or M2T file was ever going to play back in their NLE.

NeoScene transforms difficult-to-edit HDV, AVCHD, and Canon 5D/7D/T2i footage into the 10-bit CineForm intermediate codec, interpolating a 4:2:2 color space out of the recording format's 4:2:0 chroma. Depending on your OS, the software wraps these files as AVI or MOV, and it supports ProRes if you have Final Cut Pro installed. You can select from among three levels of encoder quality, to control how much hard drive space you want to commit to a specific project.

The software also can extract the cinematic 24p (for North America) or 25p (for Europe and Japan) frame rates from material that was shot as 60i/50i, an inverse telecine process that results in a look that's much closer to film than the initial interlaced format allows. This de-interlacing can also be applied to 60i video to produce 30p.

4:2:2 Chroma Interpolation
Most HDV and AVCHD camcorders record chroma (color) in a format known as 4:2:0, which is half the color resolution of more professional 4:2:2 formats. When NeoScene detects 4:2:0 chroma it properly interpolates the source chroma to 4:2:2 for more accurate color processing during editing and effects work. And if you ever key your material, CineForm's chroma interpolation will substantially improve your resulting visual fidelity
NLE Compatibility
NeoScene is compatible with Adobe Elements, Adobe CS3/CS4/CS5, Sony Vegas, and Movie Studio for Windows; Adobe CS5, Apple Final Cut Pro, and iMovie for Mac; and Avid Media Composer v5 for both platforms. For After Effects, NeoScene is compatible via Video for Windows (Windows) or QuickTime (Mac) interfaces
File Compatibility
Because CineForm files use industry-standard AVI or MOV wrappers, they are compatible with virtually any video application that supports standard interfaces, including from Adobe, Apple, Avid, Microsoft, and Sony
ProRes Support
NeoScene will create ProRes files as the destination format if Final Cut Studio is installed on your Mac
Image Processing
During conversion, NeoScene can perform inverse telecine (24p extraction from 60i) and de-interlacing (30p/25p from 60i/50i)

Comments about Cineform NeoScene Version 5:

Getting the product key was difficult, and the first one they sent me didn't work. After working it out with Cineform, I finally got it running. When I did, it was worth all the trouble. I am using an HDV camera and the results after decoding are amazing!I wish, however, that it was a hard copy, not an electronic download.Overall, it's a great product. I actually would give it 4.5 stars, but there isn't that option.

    Comments about Cineform NeoScene Version 5:

    I am using this in a high school video lab along with Final Cut Studio 3. We are a Apple Certified Training Center for Education and are involved in some fairly high end work. We use a variety of cams from Canon SD cameras, Canon HV20 and the Canon HF200 so we have a variety of formats. It does a fantastic job of converting the files for use in Final Cut. I haven't had one bit of trouble with it and everything works just as it is supposed to.

        Comments about Cineform NeoScene Version 5:

        Removes telecine without flaw. I cannot find a single fault in this program, everything works as it should.

        Main usage in removing telecine from 24p footage that is altered to 30p with 6 repeated frames.
