For those interested in the topic of DCP creation (especially since most big festivals now support and encourage it as delivery) I spent time this week researching home-grown but professional DCP creation. There are a couple open source solutions out there like opendcp (decent but limited to TIFF/JPEG2000 input) some high priced ones with disappointing features (easyDCP Creator+ and easyDCP player, $2,500.00)
And then an impressive group with a solid feature set that's soon to expand: Quvis Wraptor www.quvis.com is $699 and while definitely pricier than freeware offers an incredible feature set all controlled through Compressor 3 or 4. You can export straight out of FCP, or if coming from another NLE, just export your highest quality master file and drop it in compressor for Digital Cinema Packaging. It even comes with a plugin to write to Linux harddrives for delivery, and extensive key management seems to be coming soon.
Keep tabs on it---it for sure puts some freedom back in our hands for content creation. Having years ago worked at a post house solely on digital intermediate stuff I saw firsthand the highway robbery that can occur, where clients of all sorts were unnecessarily taken advantage of with sky high quotes for even the simplest DCP.
