Microcosm is a 16-bit, lossless codec that achieves incredible compression ratios while maintaining absolute image fidelity. The codec supports alpha channels and works in all QuickTime-based applications, including After Effects, Final Cut Pro, Premiere Pro, and Avid. This new release adds compatibility for all host software running on Macintosh-Intel systems natively or through Rosetta.
What is new in this release:
Microcosm 1.2 will optimize footage to save drive space, averaging over 6:1, while maintaining perfect image quality. This performance solves two workflow problems for professional broadcast designers, editors, and producers. Microcosm is unmatched as an intermediate codec that moves work between applications without bloating file size. Additionally, Microcosm offers a great way to archive work while maintaining the footage's original integrity.
