Hello,
I have a MacBook Pro (i7, 8 GoDDR3, 500go SSD, 2,6 Ghz, OS 10.11.4) and was expecting to  use it to convert the Cinema DNG files from the SSd of my X5R, to ProRes , because this is mostly what my clients expect. Unfortunately, Cinelight crashes each time i'm trying to convert to ProRes.
Does anyone think upgrading DDr3 to 16Go could solve this issue?
I can export the DNG files and import them in FCPX and convert to ProRes, but it takes too much time to be a good solution.
Does anyone experienced such troubles? could propose any advice?

Thanks!

The latest version of Cinelight (May 4, 2016) supposedly fixed the crashes. Have you updated Cinelight?

Hello

I would like to know how you should import the DNG files to FCP X and in FCP X convert them to ProRes. I am thinking of a X5r and I am using FCP X. I thought FCP X did not support DNG files.

How about Adobe Premiere Pro?  Does it work there?

I don't use Premiere but it can read the .DNGs created by CineLight. Look at other posts as well as the CineLight Manual

Sorry for the old thread, but I'm trying to use DaVinci to convert files from my X5R, and I can't get it to recognize them. It sees the disk but I can't find the files. Is there a trick to that? Thanks.

You need to get them off the disk first using Cinelite. No other program will read the XR5's SSD drive (that I am aware of). Once you have transferred them off the SSD, then you can drop them into Resolve.

Thanks - that makes sense.  So for a straight dng export to a thunderbolt 7200 rpm drive, I'm seeing about twice realtime to get it off the card, before I even start transcoding in Resolve... does that sound right?  Seems like it's still a long process.

Twice is quick. Mine can run up[ to 3 times real time.
Keep in mind that these are very high end files, comparable to a Red or Alexa. The process for getting files off the Red cards is also fairly lengthy. These are really big files you are dealing with. If transfer times are an issue, just stick to the proxies.
As you know, technology moves so fast that I am sure we won't be dealing with these issues for a long time but its one of the drawbacks of being early adopters of the camera.
