Glue Tools Cineon/DPX Quicktime Components

Mac users: Get Cineon & DPX functionality with Glue Tools’ Quicktime Components…

The full version will also integrate nicely with FCP, giving you access to metadata such as timecode. At $400 per license, it’s a bit too pricey for us to use here but the demo mode will at least let you see DPX thumbnails in the Finder. I tried out a folder of DPX files with Leopard‘s QuickLook and it actually plays through the sequence (although with red bars in demo mode). I did notice a few problems though, such as the image preview in Finder’s detail pane only shows the first frame of the sequence rather than the selected frame, and the thumbnail preview seems to select a random frame from the sequence and then use that as the thumbnail for every frame. I’ve still yet to find anything that shows DPX files quickly and correctly in Coverflow view.
