    It's back in a good way.
    A wavelet intermediate codec.

    Let's hope all NLE's are going to support it.

    YES! Only problem with codecs is that it takes a very long time for things to start using it (look at H.265 / x.265 for the most recent example). I would love for a camera that shoots CineForm RAW, perhaps an external recorder, but that might be awhile til that happens / supported.

    The biggest bottle neck is gone now it's open source. HVEC suffered a lot from license fees.

    The biggest advantages of Cineform over ProRes an DNxHx are: Open Source, lower on computer resources(lighter), the higher the resolution the better the compression.
    Read a nice article on Slashcam.de https://www.slashcam.de/artikel/Ratg...ich.html#Was_s just google translate it in your own language.
