Save looks for reuse across multiple days with Still Stores. CORTEX includes easy search, save and recall options to keep things quick and simple.

Keep color consistent downstream in any application with export via industry standard LUT, CDL, ALE and XML files.  Export the CORTEX Manifest to pass on all color, checksum and other session metadata to other CORTEX systems in a single file for complete fidelity and file auditing


Dead Pixel Detection

Early warning on-set for faults in camera sensors.  Share the dead pixel list with Post for automatic correction in CORTEX Enterprise.


CORTEX Manifest: Track Media and Metadata

In addition to checksums, CORTEX generates a Manifest file to track all media brought into the system, including files, checksums, LUTs, color decisions, comments & notes and more.

The Manifest can be sent to another CORTEX system and used to verify that all media is accounted and valid, and all color decisions and notes from the set are duplicated exactly in the post system.


Work Together - Export/Import

Additional color and sync decisions made during dailies can be carried round trip, back to the set so that DITs and DPs can have two-way communication with Post.
