Munich – Pomfort SilverStack v1.5 adds support for the ARRIRAW format from D-21 ARRI digital film cameras to their production-proof application suite. SilverStack is one of the first applications to support a digital dailies workflow with QuickTime-support for the hi-end digital movie camera from ARRI. In the new version SilverStack also got a polished user interface and the render queue Cinemator now has a command line render option for the individual render environments.
The Pomfort SilverStack Suite consists of Pomfort SilverStack, a tool for inspecting, managing and previewing hi-res image sequences coming from film scanners, digital video systems or digital field recorders. Special focus lies on the creation of QuickTime movies for editorial, client communication and quality control. The application offers a broad but specific range of options for the creation of QuickTime movies. A separate render queue application is included (Pomfort Cinemator) for batch processing.
SilverStack and Cinemator both support a 10 bit color depth video pipeline for capable QuickTime codecs such as Apple’s ProRes or Avid’s DNxHD, the ARRIRAW support includes all necessary image manipulation settings such as ASA, logC and white-point adaption. The creation of QuickTime movies can be manipulated individually with setups and templates including preview lookup tables and basic color correction, burn-ins, timecode tracks and much more. The Pomfort Cinemator render queue manages batch processing and balances system performance by simultaneously rendering multiple movies at once. The Pomfort SilverStack Suite application makes great use of Mac OS X Leopard’s graphics capabilities and productivity features such as Spotlight and QuickLook and packs all together into an elegant, Mac-style, professional user interface.
SilverStack is available in two editions: SilverStack HCD with high color depth pipeline at $695 USD, the SilverStack HCD with ARRIRAW support at $1495 USD per single seat license. Separate render licenses are available for distributed render environments.
Software requires an Intel Mac, Mac OS X 10.5.6, QuickTime 7.6 or higher.
