Atlantis for Mac 2.2 Released with HD features

Atlantis for Mac now has many new conversion modes available now in Release 2.2.

It is now possible to convert 1080i50 or 1080p25 to 1080i60 or 1080p24, and vice-versa. Also 720p25 can be converted to 720p24 and vice-versa.

If the compression format is DV, DVCPRO, DVCPRO50 or DVCPROHD, Atlantis automatically selects the corresponding 50Hz or 60Hz compression format as appropriate (provided the Apple DVCPROHD codecs are installed).

A table listing all the possible modes is here.

This is a free update to all existing Atlantis users. To get the update, go to the DVFilm Update page.

Raylight Ultra 1.3 Released

The new Raylight Ultra adds direct P2 MXF export, with smart rendering, of the most popular P2 formats: DVCPROHD and DVCPRO50. All frame rates for 50Hz and 60Hz systems are supported. Ultra 1.3 is a free update.

Also you can now get two upgrades of interest to AVC-Intra users: Power Pack I with 3X faster AVC-Intra playback compared with the standard Raylight Ultra, and Power Pack II with faster playback and also direct export, with smart rendering, of AVC-Intra formats to P2 MXF files.

The AVC-Intra format uses 50 or 100Mbps H.264 I-frame compression for higher quality and more resolution compared with DVCPROHD. Example P2 cameras with AVC-Intra are the Panasonic HPX3000 and the HPX300.

To update to Ultra 1.3 go to our update page. You must be a registered user to get the free update.
