    • Selectable imaging speed from 1 to 19 frames/second
    • KeyKode-based job management
    • Multiple simultaneous output resolutions and data formats including DPX and all popular QuickTime codecs.
    • Fast HD QuickTime Dailies
    • Per-clip color correction
    • Negative film type optimization
      Many common negative film types are carefully characterized at Lasergraphics to allow CineDirector to compensate for variation.  The result is more accurate color reproduction and less time spent color grading.
    • RollView with thumbnail preview and automatic clip/splice detection at up to 100 frames/second (200 frames/second for 16mm).
