Cinegy Player 3 Features
One of the main features of Cinegy Player 3 is that it plays Daniel2 video files with Nvidia GPU acceleration, so even a simple Nvidia GTX1060 equipped PC or notebook can play 8K files. But Cinegy Player 3 can do so much more ...
Like previous Cinegy Player versions it can play most commonly used broadcast video formats and now also allows output of 10 bit video using an ordinary Nvidia Geforce or Quadro graphics cards. It can perform zoom and pan while playback, can apply effects in realtime as well as apply complex 3D LUTs exported e.g. from BlackMagicDesign's Resolve.
Playback of files that are still being recorded / written is another strength of Cinegy Player 3.
The user interface of Cinegy Player 3 is much less cluttered. A number of features we had in the previous versions, like the MXF analyzer, have been removed. Others features, e.g. the playback of IP streams, will be brought back in future builds.
Cinegy Player 3 Realtime Effects
The realtime effect panels is just one right-click away. Adjust color, brightness, gamma, posterize, negate or flip the image.
This is not by any means a professional color correction but a quick fixer and an illustration of GPU compute power.
For playback with professional color correction you can use 3D LUTs prepared in tools such BlackMagicDesign's Resolve and exported as .cube files which then can be loaded straight into Cinegy Player 3 (right click in player window -> Open LUT File). Pressing the "u" key on the keyboard toggles the LUT on/off.
3D LUT processing is compute intensive. For realtime 60fps 8K playback with 3D LUTs enabled a Nvidia GTX1080 or better is required. For HD or UHD/4K files less powerful cards may be sufficient. To see whether your card can cope enable the Cinegy Player 3 status info display.
Cinegy Player Status Info
To see how your Cinegy Player 3 is doing there are a number of keyboard shortcuts that will toggle the display of additional status information. Pressing the "s" key will display the current frame rate the player is playing at. Pressing "a" will toggle the display of a whole load of additional information, such as display bit depth, codec version, GPU name, temperature, load, frequency, hw video encoder and bus load, CPU load of app and the machine as a whole, quantization level, bit depth and color format of the source file, resolution of the source file, zoom factor and windows size, current and total number of frames, bit rate and data rate, vertical sync on/off, forced file indicated fps (playFPS) on/off, mute on/off, alpha on/off, and finally LUT loaded.
All of these flags can be toggled by keyboard shortcut - see total list of keyboard shortcuts below. Cinegy Player 3 uses the standard "J", "K", "L" and space bar keys for transport control with the addition of the left and right cursor keys to do single frame reverse or forward stepping.
