SilverStack 1.2 at NAB
Pomfort today announced plans to showcase its Pomfort SilverStack 1.2 image sequence manager for film and video production workflows. Pomfort SilverStack is designed to provide lightweight, professional handling of image sequences -- including extensive feature for viewing, managing, and exporting of image files such as DPX and Cineon formats. The update includes features for improved metadata management, accelerated as well as extended file handling, and new automation features. Pomfort will demonstrate the use of its various options for movie creation such as resolution, codec, textual burn-ins, custom metadata, primary color correction, and linearization filters at the ARRI booth for the digital intermediate process with the ARRISCAN film scanner.
Pomfort SilverStack enables operators to browse sequence-based and timecode-oriented content with a unique info-timeline, and open movie-typical file types such as DPX or Cineon in virtually any resolution (NTSC/PAL, HD, 2k, 4k, 6k). The software also enables users to edit SMPTE timecodes as well as frame rates in headers of entire DPX image sequences, view color-channels alongside a selective RGB histogram, apply gamma- or 1D and 3D LUT-based linearization for logarithmic film material, apply primary color correction, and playback of preview movies of image sequences on any machine using built-in QuickTime-based player.
