"We have witnessed an explosion of 3D mania in Hollywood in just the past 6 months alone, and with that explosive growth comes not only a heightened demand for new creative content, but also a steep requirement for effective, efficient and powerful 3D production workflow technology. And here at NAB 2010, we're excited to demonstrate the significant advancements we've made with our Neo family of 3D workflow solutions," said David Taylor, CEO and co-founder of CineForm. "Visitors to the CineForm booth at NAB will not only see the advancements we've made in our own products, they'll hear how we've impacted 3D production innovations across many levels and through many valued partners, such as Cinedeck, NVIDIA, Panasonic and many more. We're proud of the role we've played in this new era of 3D post production and we look forward to what's coming in 2010 and beyond."
What's New in Neo3D Version 5
CineForm Neo3D Version 5 introduces a number of new real-time 3D production features critical to the 3D workflow, including:
- Floating window masks to manage 3D window violations;
- Keyframe ability to allow ramping of 2D and 3D Active Metadata, including convergence at cut points between 3D clips on a timeline;
- 'Ghost busting' to minimize high-contrast crosstalk between Left and Right channels visible on some 3D display technologies;
- A new graphics engine enabling 3D text and graphics overlays on top of underlying video including independent parallax (3D depth) controls;
- New support for Adobe CS5 on both Windows and Mac, including automatic 3D render capabilities;
- On Windows, Neo3D adds support for NVIDIA OpenGL surfaces to drive both passive and active 3D monitors.
