Pomfort Silver Stack beta

Pomfort today released a pre-Christmas version of Pomfort SilverStack for Mac OS X, its new software for film and video production workflows. The application is designed to handle image sequences while allowing users to view, manage, and export image files with support for DPX and Cineon formats. Pomfort SilverStack supports sequence-based and timecode-oriented browsing, as well as most field-related file types (such as TIF in nearly any resolution). Users can change SMPTE time codes and frame rates in the headers of entire DPX image sequences, and the software allows extraction of color channels as well as inspection of color with a selective RGB histogram. Pomfort SilverStack is available for free as a public beta, with two separate configurations slated due to ship in January for 150 and 400.

Pomfort SilverStack also offers zoom and pan options to view every pixel even on small displays, and allows Gamma- or LUT-based color linearization for logarithmic material with custom presets. The application enables users to choose frame rate, resolution, codec, and the quality of QuickTime movies while offering textual burn-ins such as time codes in different fps. Movies are created in the Pomfort Cinemator render-queue -- which is included in Pomfort SilverStack -- while an integrated DPX Spotlight plug-in supports searches for time code or key code in DPX headers.
