Cineform is an intermediate codec. This means that the data flow from capturing is translated into an intermediate Cineform codec, which takes about 3-4 times as much storage space but should be easier to edit with less burden on your system. The fact that it does not show a lesser burden may be caused by a suboptimal disk configuration, that struggles with the data rate required for Cineform intermediates.
ok so I've been playing with the footage captured in cine and I've noticed it struggles untill you watch it once then it seems to be ok... also the footage has a yellow line above it similar to the red render line, but you dont need to render it, its just there...
I just want to know if there is any point in recapturing the hours of footage I've already captured again using cine, or should i continue using cs4 premiere and forget i ever saw cineform?
The yellow line just indicates that the material in the timeline has different properties that the sequence, but need not be rendered.
No need to recapture.
ok thanks I was a bit stressed out there for a bit
