Digital cinemas play back all of their content from a file format known as Digital Cinema Package (DCP). This free video tutorial gives an overview of the format, along with a demonstration of how to go about creating DCP files from your Pro Tools mixes.
I will cover the following processes...
- 5.1 Mixdown
- Combining the audio and video to create a high-quality video master
- Creation of the DCP file
This video is aimed at anyone working on lower budget film projects who wish to gain an understanding of how to create a DCP version of the movie which can be loaded onto a cinema server for playback. It is not supposed to be representative of the workflow for a large budget studio released movie.
