To edit existing DCPs, the following options are available:
The easyDCP Creator can open, edit and regenerate unencrypted DCPs. Changes to the metadata can be applied within seconds using the "Save Package" function, without time-consuming new image and sound data generation.
With the easyDCP Creator+ even encrypted DCPs can be opened and regenerated as encrypted or unencrypted DCPs. Please note the limitations for editing encrypted DCPs in the following FAQ:
The easyDCP Player+ can open unencrypted and encrypted DCPs, unpack and export them to j2c / dpx / tif / wav formats. If desired, an easyDCP project file (.dcpproj) will be created automatically to load the unpacked DCP later in easyDCP Creator or easyDCP Creator+, in which all metadata is supported. Subtitles or other language versions can be added directly here, but other changes can also be made, including re-encryption.
The re-creation of an unpacked DCP in easyDCP Creator(+) is almost as fast as copying, since the image sequences are already available in the appropriate JPEG 2000 format. Please note that for each video track, color transformation and letterboxing, as well as global JPEG 2000 re-encoding, must be disabled:
The easyDCP Resolve Plugin can be used to load unencrypted and encrypted DCPs as well.
Please note: The easyDCP Publisher does not support the opening of packages yet.
CPU-accelerated encoding with CUDA®-enabled graphics card was introduced in easyDCP Creator 3.3 and easyDCP Creator+ 3.3 (Windows® only).
You can now encode DCPs faster than real-time.
We recommend enabling GPU-accelerated encoding in the menu "File|Options|Image Processing|GPU Encoding" as it usually outperforms the CPU-based encoder significantly:
Please note: The easyDCP JPEG 2000 Encoder also supports GPU acceleration. The easyDCP Publisher does not yet support GPU acceleration.
easyDCP 3.6.0 and above will be activated within the application/preferences.
