Meet FrameCycler 2007 at SIGGRAPH

See the Latest Versions of the Industry’s Leading Playback Applications
Los Angeles: August 7, 2007 … IRIDAS, who introduced the first software solution for uncompressed playback in 2001, is bringing FrameCycler 2007 to SIGGRAPH in San Diego. The FrameCycler applications provide VFX artists and post facilities with powerful playback and image analysis tools for HD, 2K and higher resolution content.


FrameCycler Professional offers desktop playback of uncompressed sequences in virtually any file format. FrameCycler DDS (Digital Daily System) provides direct-from-disk playback for unlimited length review sessions. With the 2007 versions, playlists can be built and edited right on the timeline by drag-and-drop. LUTs and .Looks can be loaded and applied to individual clips or to the whole timeline. In addition, FrameCycler DDS 2007 introduces EDL conform and SDI-out for live broadcast-quality playback.

“FrameCycler got its start in the VFX community and that’s why we like being at SIGGRAPH,” said Steve Crouch, Director of IRIDAS USA. “We can’t wait to meet new and established artists to show them what FrameCycler 2007 can do.”

See FrameCycler at the PipelineFX booth (#337) on August 8 at SIGGRAPH 2007 at the San Diego Convention Center. FrameCycler Professional 2007 and FrameCycler Digital Daily System 2007 run on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. IRIDAS’ DualStream module for stereoscopic playback is available for both applications.

In 2003 IRIDAS introduced the first non-destructive color correction application. Today SpeedGrade and FrameCycler provide the critical links in an end-to-end pipeline for uncompressed content and color metadata. IRIDAS’ applications are used by filmmakers around the world and most major animation and postproduction houses. IRIDAS is an independent, privately held company headquartered in Munich, Germany.
