No "Cineform Quicktime" output from After Effects?

I am currently evaluating Cineform for an After Effects > Premiere back and forth workflow. Since we are working on both, Win7 and MacOS we need output to MOV files.

Right now I am testing on Win7, Adobe CS5.5, and have just installed the trial of Cineform Neo.

The problem is, from within After Effects I cannot export "Cineform Quicktime", there is only "Cineform AVI". Is this a bug or normal?

When chosing the regular formats "AVI" and "Quicktime" there is only an "GoPro Cineform HD/4K/3D" option. But this cannot be configured to Low/Medium/High etc.

From within Premiere Pro I can export both "Cineform AVI" as well as "Cineform Quicktime".

I did run the "Fix After Effects" script that came with Cineform Neo and did set my project to 16bit as described in the ReadMe. However, "Trillions of colors" as color depth for output is not available, which should be chosen according to the ReadMe.

Is there something wrong in After Effect?

Kind regards,

normally from ae, if you wanted to render a quicktime, you would choose quicktime as the format, then choose the codec from the format options.

but since that did not give you the options you needed, you might try choosing file>export and see if cineform quicktime is an option there. it's not the approved method, but i have found that some formats can only be exported form ae.

MMMM.. I can't seem to find it either. I'm on a mac. Premiere Pro has it but not after effects.

You must locate the MediaCoreQT XML file on your machine and insert a couple of lines to enable Trillions of Colors with the QT - Cineform HD/2K/4K - codec.
