Avid DNxHD

Avid DNxHD is an encoding technology, or codec, that is specifically designed for HD postproduction. Other codecs, which are developed by camera manufacturers, can lose image quality during the nonlinear editing and compositing process due to the vast number of times that media files are repeatedly uncompressed, manipulated, and recompressed. Developed by the leading nonlinear editing manufacturer, Avid DNxHD is designed to maintain the image quality of 8- and 10-bit uncompressed HD media throughout the entire postproduction process. In addition, Avid DNxHD allows professionals to work with files that offer superior image HD quality at standard definition file sizes, eliminating the need for additional storage that would otherwise be required when working with uncompressed HD media. Using Avid DNxHD, professionals can edit HD footage and perform precise color correction, contrast adjustments, effects, and compositing over multiple generations of postproduction processing – with virtually no image degradation.

CinePaint

CinePaint is a free open source painting and image retouching program designed to work best with 35mm film and other high resolution high dynamic range images. It is the most popular open source tool in the motion picture industry -- used in 2 Fast 2 Furious, Scooby-Doo, Harry Potter, Stuart Little and other feature films. CinePaint is used for painting of background mattes and for frame-by-frame retouching of movies. It is being extended to do film restoration.

Animation renderers and 35mm film scanners are capable of creating greater color bit-depth than can be displayed on monitors (8-bit per channel) or can be manipulated in most programs. The 32-bit per channel color capacity of CinePaint appeals most to cinematographers and professional still photographers. However, CinePaint is a general-purpose tool useful for working on images for motion pictures, print, and the Web. CinePaint supports many file formats, conventional formats such as JPEG, PNG, TIFF, and TGA images -- and more exotic motion picture digital intermediate formats such as Cineon and OpenEXR.
