Microcosm is the world's first lossless 64-bit RGBA QuickTime file format. Utilizing Theory LLC's revolutionary technology, Microcosm crushes 64-bit or 32-bit files into a fraction of their uncompressed size without losing any image quality. Desktop applications like Adobe After Effects, Apple's Final Cut Pro, and Pinnacle's Commotion have changed the way we work with moving images. The big problem on the desktop, however, is that you need to jump back and forth between these different applications to produce a final result. Each jump requires a render to either an image sequence or a QuickTime movie.Microcosm is designed to be used as an intermediate codec to go between applications during workflow. It will optimize your footage to save drive space, averaging over 6:1, while maintaining perfect image quality.
