Is anyone familiar with the Cineform D.I. process? This is being promoted as an online D.I. codec, offering both HD and 2K real time editing capability at desk top PC data rates, utilizing either a single 7200 rpm SATA drive, or a couple of them striped for RAID 0. I think their process uses around a 7 to 1 compression ratio, which one would normally associate with offline quality. Yet, the claim is that their codec is used for creating online, high resolution digital intermediates. It sounds too good to be true, but I'd love to be wrong about that. This process was used for the film, "Dust to Glory", which was an amalgam of 35mm, 16mm, and dv. If any of you have seen it, I'd be curious to know how well the film-originated portions looked on screen. Thanks.
