Free, open-source DCP creation from almost anything.

DCP-o-matic is a free, open-source program to create Digital Cinema Packages (DCPs) from videos, images, sound and subtitle files. You can use it to make content for playback on DCI-compliant cinema projectors.

It can take files in many different formats, including MP4, Apple ProRes, MOV, AVI, M2TS (from Blu-Ray), VOB (from DVD), WMV, MKV, JPEG, PNG, TIFF and lots of others.

It will run on Windows, macOS and Linux      and is in use in 59 countries around the world for film festivals, commercial DCP creation, creation of snipes and adverts in cinemas and much more.

Further to my previous message about old macOS versions, it seems like it might also be useful to drop support for 10.9 (Mavericks), so that the earliest supported macOS version would be Yosemite (10.10). Do let me know if that would cause you problems.

The test version of DCP-o-matic now has support for the M1 (ARM/Apple Silicon) processors found in new Macbooks and Mac Minis. I'd be very grateful to hear about how you get on if you try it!

Season's greetings to all!

It's that time of year again when I try to work out if anybody is using DCP-o-matic on a macOS version earlier than the 2013 release of Mavericks (10.9).

If you use DCP-o-matic on Mountain Lion, Lion or Snow Leopard (10.8, 10.7 or 10.6) can you drop me a line?

If nobody needs it I may take the opportunity of the forthcoming 2.16.0 release to drop support for anything earlier than 10.9.
