Let’s talk about intermediate codecs


What do you use and why?

I’m on Windows, so no ProRes for me. My alternative of choice was Cineform since it works both on Windows and macOS.

I also gave DNxHD a try but it didn’t gave me good results.


Install the GoPro app, it has the Cineform codec in it.


I am also on Windows and I use ProRes codec (through LRTimelapse export pannel) and edit them in Premiere Pro/After Effects.
I also read on other forums that some timelapsers also use that “Cineform” codec. I didn’t find any way to find it on the internet. Can you send me an official link of this codec?
