Use Your Favorite Spreadsheet Editor
Cinecred can read the raw credits data from a
Credits.xls(x) (Microsoft Excel),
Credits.ods (OpenOffice/LibreOffice Calc), or
Credits.csv file. Edit it with
your preferred spreadsheet tool, integrating perfectly with the rest of your production workflow. Need
to add a credit or fix a typo later on? Just change the spreadsheet!
While editing the credits data and its styling, Cinecred continually updates an interactive visual
preview and indicates any problems with the
Credits file. Optional layout guides make
both learning Cinecred and styling your credits sequence dead easy. A video preview lets you
immediately watch the sequence without time-consuming rendering.
All the styling options Cinecred provides might seem overwhelming at first. But the interactive nature of Cinecred—including contextual input, live application of changes, and easy reverts—make it intuitive and fun to play around with different settings and thereby explore and learn the ins and outs of Cinecred's styling system.
Apart from standard use cases, Cinecred's flexible styling system enables a wide range of credits layouts and designs. Whatever you have in mind, Cinecred can likely assist you in implement it.
Manifold Delivery Options
Does your post-production workflow require ProRes, DPX sequences, or even SVGs which you animate yourself? Do you want to send around PDFs of the credits sequence for checks? No matter what the need, Cinecred probably has you covered. You do not need to adapt your workflow to Cinecred; Cinecred adapts to your workflow.
Cinecred Is Not Opinionated
We've specifically designed Cinecred to cater to every user's needs as fully as possible, without adding bloat, making it hard to use, or requiring a steep learning curve. Cinecred does not impose some way of working, it tries its best to support every conceivable layout, it does not unnecessarily limit the media and delivery file formats, and so on. If you miss some feature, let us know by submitting an issue on GitHub or sending an email to hello at loadingbyte dot com, and we will try our best to add support for your use case.
