HOLLYWOOD, CA — MTI Film has released an updated version of CORTEX, its family of software solutions for managing media from the set to the screen. CORTEX v5.4 includes new and enhanced features designed to improve the handling of camera media, dailies production, post-production processing and deliverables packaging. User experience has also been significantly improved, making it even easier to manage projects through successive stages of production and post.
New features included in CORTEX v5.4 were developed from direct user feedback.
CORTEX v5.4 includes several new features for DCP packaging. It now supports decoding and rendering in both Interop and SMPTE DCP formats. It also supports multiple video and audio tracks for playback, assembly and rendering, encrypted or non-encrypted. Additionally, it includes expanded features for DCP subtitling that enable font selection, positioning and text editing.
CORTEX v5.4 improves Dolby Vision mastering with new features including Level 8 metadata display. Working with Dolby Atmos has also been streamlined with a new software development kit. Support for Dolby Digital has been added.
CORTEX v5.4 makes visual effects production easier. The software can now facilitate the pass-through of ARRI Quicktime camera data (including focus, iris, zoom, position and attitude) when rendering ProRes files. In addition, CORTEX v5.4 includes expanded support for DNG files, Adobe’s raw format, used in drones, smartphones and other camera systems.
