August 31, 2018 -- A major new update has launched for Academy Award-winning video review tool cineSync, revolving around File Sequence Playback and UX development.
cineSync 4.1.5 features a host of functionality improvements, particularly around integrations with production tracking solutions ftrack and Shotgun. But Cospective’s biggest update comes in the form of File Sequence Playback. In cineSync 4.1.5 (and later), multiple clips can be played back as a single continuous File Sequence.
cineSync 4.1.5 is available today. You can start enjoying the improvements, listed below, right now. Download it here.
File Sequence Playback
Creating a File Sequence will create an additional “movie” in your Playlist, which contains the selected files in a single timeline, allowing you to play through continuously and view quick context cuts. Handles can be set across the Playlist, or on a per-file basis, to allow the automated removal of slates and other unnecessary frames. File Sequences can be re-ordered or extended at any time, and any notes applied to shots in the sequence can still be exported back to Shotgun, ftrack, and more against the correct shot version.
