Last week we highlighted our new sponsor Cinemartin and their tool Cinec 3.X and today, we'd like to introduce you to PLIN – which is a windows plugin to let you export ProRes and H.265 via Premiere

Cinemartin PLIN: A plugin for Adobe Premiere to export to ProRes and to HEVC H.265

From Cinemartin Press:

Cinemartin, the European team Spain based, producer of the acclaimed Cinemartin Cinec encoder video converter software that accepts almost any video input source and enable video users to export to Prores and H265 on windows, now announces the release of Cinemartin PLIN, a plugin for NLE editors including Adobe Premiere that allow users to export to Prores and H.265 directly from the editor.

Plin is a Plugin for NLE editors on Windows, initially available for Adobe Premiere CS 5.5, CS 6.0 and Adobe Premiere Pro CC versions.

Once installed, PLIN allows NLE users to export the sequence timeline (the master mix) directly to all flavors of Apple ProRes and to latest HEVC H.265 among others codecs.

Cinemartin Plin will be available in future upgrades for Sony Vegas and Avid Media Composer.

Last camera announcements from manufacturers including Sony, Blackmagic Design, Red, etc., and recorders from Convergent Design (Odyssey) and Atomos (shogun) .. have or will support Prores internal recording.

Recently Sony announced a firmware upgrade that allow Sony F5 and F55 to record internally to Prores. Same apply to new AJA CION camera among others.

These announcements from major manufacturers, demonstrate the success the bet that cinemartin made some years ago when was launching the Cinec Prores encoder back on 2012. Now the camera and big players of video know that prores is a must for any profesional, its superB pictures at one of the best size (disk space) ratios, makes of these codec, the worldwide standard used by thousands or hundred thousand of video users.


Where’s the problem ?, well users of new upgraded firmware sony cameras that will be able to record to prores (like F5 or F55), Red users (with RED addon for prores recording), Blackmagic design 4K, production camera, URSA, and AJA CION among others, allow users to record to prores inside the internal camera’s recorder. Same apply for Convergent design Odissey or Atomos Ninja, Atomos Samurai and the new Atomos Shogun. So user get the hightest quality, ok, the user put the videos to a windows computer, ok then they can edit using Adobe Premiere, but .. hey they can’t export to prores (to preserve the hightest quality the camera was record to) so, here is where Cinemartin PLIN enters.

Cinemartin PLIN cover the lack for prores conversion in the workflow of Windows pc-based systems, as an addon to its Cinec Software, available as a alone plugin or in pack with Cinec, Cinemartin PLIN, initially available for Premiere CS 5.5, CS 6.0 and Premiere Pro CC, will be available in the future for Sony Vegas, Avid non-linear editors and Resolve for Windows

Cinemartin PLIN, will be available in 3 versions, Standard, Professional and Gold

  1. DO NOT BUY FROM THESE GUYS (Cinemartin). They don’t allow the transfer of licenses from one computer to another over time – they can’t be bothered with the deactivation of a previous install. They literally require that you buy a unique license for each new primary computer you use, ever.

  2. Hello to all, Im Tony from Cinemartin

    This guy, Walker Zavareei,at walkerzavareei@gmail.com just purchased one license and he ask us for more for free.
    Our sales dept discussing with him with  more than 15 emails.

    That boy dont understand the rules that explicit on our website says that licenses are valid for 1 person on 1 computer.
    He ask us to get another license for his new labtop. Then we told him that this is not possibe, that licenses, as stated on website, are for 1 computer. Then the boy continue injuring about, and telling us how we need to manage the things and how we need to operate.

    Finally Angelo from sales dept offered the possibility to deactivate the license once he get the new computer, and whats the recompensation, this post ?, well dont worry, you’ll get no that feature. 

    We have hundreds of customers happy with our software. Our software is used by smaller, medium and big companies and we have an excellence support, but you are the typical guy that want the things for free. Sorry but we do not work for the love.

  3. Guys – I’m allowing these two posts… but I won’t allow any more conversation about this topic here. 

    Licensing is what it is… if you don’t like the license, don’t buy the software.

  4. planetMitch  The problem is that the licensing is not defined (THEIR WORDS)- I asked what the formal policy was on whether it was possible to ever deactivate a license to transition to a new workstation. I explicted said I wanted to be sure what their policy was before I left others information about my experience. Their response: “That is not defined”.

  5. I have an Atomos Ninja 2, and got bummed that I could import, but I couldn’t SAVE any ProRes file straight from within Premiere Pro onto my Windows 8.1 computer, and everyone shouting that this was plainly impossible due to plugin restrictions.
    So I started to Google for ‘ProRes plugin for Premiere Pro on Windows’, and to my surprise, there was a company named Cinemartin that very, very recently brought out the solution to my problem!
    I tried the free, limited version of their Cinec Plin plugin, which allows you to save 10 sec. of timeline straight into ProRes on a Windows machine (and into many more professional high end video formats!). It was fast, and thank God, with no further frills, but still with plenty of options for selecting your framerate, and your video format, and after clicking the button, Cinec Plin started rendering the timeline, came up with its own little screen in which you could monitor the progress, and she was done! :-)
    So I bought the Pro plugin, and think the price is reasonable for such a highly professional quality plugin. I had some e-mail contact with the Cinemartin team, and they are most helpful and friendly!
    So I highly recommend the Cinec Plin plugin :-)
