I came across the Cineform product called Neoscene and was wondering if anyone here has used it?

My video camera shoots in either AVCHD 60i or 60p or MP4 30fps. I was wondering if by using Cineform to convert the video clips to 24fps what the quality would be.

Any ideas or expederience?

Thank you.

Yes, for a year, works great with VP9, I'm soon upgrading to VP11, hopefully it will work with the upgrade or perhaps I will not need it. I'll soon see.

I highly recommend it, though Vegas 10 crashes fairly frequently with footage I converted to avi on it, which I've read is because Cineform and Sony are somehow indifferent to each other's new software. After I finish my current batch of projects, I'm probably switching back to Vegas 9 (and I just switched back to Vegas 10).

Just got VP 11 up and running, quite amazing! put two clips on the timeline, same clip. One out of my canon 7d-h.264 raw and the other was a Cineform Neoscene medium conversion.

VP11 plays them both, no choking, at full resolution! I set my preview up to maximum and the files play back great, unbelievable.

I have not applied any effects, I would expect that to slow things down a bit, but compared to the playback performance under 9e, with the exact same computer system, graphics card, etc. an amazing improvement.

Will I still use Neoscene? It is no longer mandatory to just edit, I will have to do some tests to see if grading performance improves by converting the camera original to a 4:2:2 environment. I'll post again when I conduct some tests.

As anybody here seems to be struggling against a lagging preview, do you mind post your PC specs?

Thanks

I have it and it works very well. Mostly I use it to render between Vegas Pro and After Effects and back because it is a near lossless format which stands up well to multiple renders.

You could convert it to 24p right in Vegas. I'm not sure why you would use NeoScene for that. Just render the files using a 24p template in Vegas. If you plan to edit them after that, make sure that you use 2:3:3:2 pulldown in the render template.
