Open Cine June 2015


RAW Video and Digital Negative processing and viewing suite

There are several free and open raw-image processing tools for still images like: ufrawdarktableRawTherapeeRawstudiodigiKam and many more. While some of them offer batch processing capabilities none of these tools are necessarily designed for moving pictures. Processing DNG sequences is cumbersome and time consuming, CinemaDNG MXF files are not yet supported at all.
This is where Open Cine should come in. It will be a raw processing tool designed from the ground up for moving images instead of still images.

Below is a very early reference of the kind of software being developed.

Due to this being an Open Source project then a lot of code is being written and developed. As OpenCine grows there is a GitHub web-based Git repository, explanation from Wikipedia below for those unfamiliar : 

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

GitHub, Inc.


April 10, 2008; 7 years ago

GitHub is a web-based Git repository hosting service, which offers all of the distributed revision control and source code management (SCM) functionality of Git as well as adding its own features. Unlike Git, which is strictly a command-line tool, GitHub provides a web-based graphical interface and desktop as well as mobile integration. It also provides access control and several collaboration features such as wikistask management, and bug tracking and feature requests for every project.[3]

GitHub offers both plans for private repositories and free accounts, which are usually used to host open-source software projects. As of 2015, GitHub reports having over 9 million users and over 21.1 million repositories,[4] making it the largest code hoster in the world.[5]

As OpenCine develops further there will be updates with new videos showing it in operation and working.
