New Cinemartin Premiere Pro Plug-in Enables ProRes, HEVC Export on Windows

Cinec Plin Plug-in Works with Adobe Premiere Pro CS 5.5, CS 6.0 and CC

Cinemartin said today that its new Cinec Plin plug-in would let Premiere Pro editors working on Windows machines export directly from the timeline using both ProRes and HEVC H.265 codecs.

The company said all versions of ProRes 422 are supported, along with 4444 in the Plin Pro version. A 35-day trial version that encodes ProRes 422 only is available for download.

Cinemartin makes Cinec software for Windows, supporting a variety of codecs including ProRes and H.265, but Cinec Plin is the company's first plug-in.

Plin comes in three different versions. The standard version currently sells for €49 ($68) and supports output at up to 1080p and 30fps in ProRes 422 (including LT and HQ variants) and 4444 using a single CPU score. The pro version is €149 ($206) or €99 ($137) for student and noncommercial use, and adds UHD and 4K output at up to 60fps, plus ProRes 4444 and H.265 (v2) RQ encoding using up to two CPU cores. Finally, Plin Gold isn't available yet, but when it shows up it will offer H.265 SQ and HQ encoding and will take advantage of up to six cores for €399 ($551), the company said.

    Kind of cynical for them to impose graduated pricing as they “enable” the software to encode faster using more CPU cores. That kind of customer manipulation is an offense to building a commercial relationship.

    Avid’s DNxHD codecs are just as good as Apple’s ProRes codecs. Unfortunately, for no good reason, Avid has been holding back on allowing Presets which will enable renders to DNx4K. Avid’s sluggishness in this regard is very, very stupid. No new compression scheme is required. Simply quadrupling the current maximum spatial settings and Mbs per second settings would be sufficient and all Windows users would have a perfectly good alternative to ProRes. Instead, Avid waits. For what?

    Apple’s only trick, ProRes – don’t need it!

      Many film festivals demand it exclusively for screening copies.

    DO NOT BUY FROM THESE GUYS. They don’t allow the transfer of licenses from one computer to another over time – they can’t be bothered with the deactivation of a previous install. They literally require that you buy a unique license for each new primary computer you use, ever.

      Pretty damning information, thanks for the warning. I’ll avoid them (though exporting to ProRes from a PC might rear its ugly/outdated head someday, and I’ll be stuck).

        Yeah – it goes along with the graduated price structure you mentioned. It really makes my stomach turn that I bought from them assuming they followed established ethics for this stuff.
