- Image Input: ARRIRAW (.ARI or .MXF), AVI*, Blackmagic RAW .BRAW, BMP, Cineon, CinemaDNG/DNG**, DPX, DV*, JPEG, MPEG, QuickTime (Apple) MOV*, MP4*, OpenEXR, Photoshop PSD, PNG, Apple ProRes™ (.mov, all platforms), RED R3D (GPU-accelerated), SGI RGB, Targa, TIFF, WMV (Win). RED SDK 8.0.0 support includes Komodo, Helium, Dragon, HDR and RED ROCKET and OpenCL/CUDA decoding. Lidar .XYZ import including per-vertex RGB.
- Apple ProRes™ movies may be read and written on Windows and Linux SynthEyes versions, in addition to macOS, with all codecs from ProRes Proxy to full ProRes 4444 XQ, including 16-bit/channel data and an alpha channel.
- Reading and writing HEVC/H.265 requires Win 10 Creator's Edition (1703), macOS 10.13 (High Sierra), or later.
- Important Note for reading HEVC/H.265 .mp4 files on Windows 10: Microsoft has (re)moved HEVC/H.265 support for some users to an optional Windows Store Download, due to some licensing issue. Try HEVC Video Extensions from Device Manufacturer (Free) or HEVC Video Extensions ($0.99). See also the note below.
- Image Output: ASF (Win), AVI (Win), BMP, Cineon, DPX, JPEG, MOV*, MP4 (Win), OpenEXR, PNG, Apple ProRes™ (.mov, all platforms), SGI, Targa, TIFF, WMV (Win).
- Pro version: Any practical resolution, image or pixel aspect ratio (no resolution limits), ie SD, HD, 2K, 3K, 4K, 5K, 6K, 8K, ....
- Intro version: maximum of 1920x1080 HD.
- 8 bits/channel, 16 bits/channel, "half" (16 bit) floating, and 32-bit floating-point. Availability varies based on image type.
- Metadata extraction and writing for select image types. Ability to use a tandem file for metadata.
- Timecode extraction with burn-in to camera and perspective views, and on Save Sequence and Preview Movies.
*: The readability of any given "movie" file depends on the operating system and codec software installed on your particular machine and cannot be predicted in advance. Additional file extensions may also be readable. Older Windows versions permit only HD MP4 resolution. Please verify particular formats via the SynthEyes demo version. Due to operating-system limitations, AVI/MOV processing on 64-bit systems may need go through a 32-bit server, slowing speeds and limiting output capabilities somewhat. Linux version supports only image sequences, ARRIRAW (only!) .mxf, Blackmagic .braw, Apple ProRes™, and RED .r3d movies, not other movie-file formats such as AVI, MOV, or MP4.
**: While DNG specifies the RAW image, the final RGB image delivered to applications is not specified as part of the standard, so DNG images appear differently in different applications. SynthEyes delivers a direct image that is much less processed than in applications such as Photoshop. Hopefully future versions of DNG will standardize this.
