DCP — professional, correct and free.

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 commercial DCP creation, education, creation of snipes and adverts in cinemas and much more.

Vashi Nedomansky, ACE has made an interesting post-production course using as an example his editing work on 6 Below. In particular, he describes how he used DCP-o-matic to create DCPs. The whole course is now available for free, after registering. Enjoy!

Download it from here.

3rd August 2020

DCP-o-matic 2.14.36 was released.

This release fixes several bugs. The most important fix is for major sync problems when making DCPs from source files ripped from DVDs (and possibly other media) which use ‘soft telecine (2:3 pulldown)’. DCP-o-matic was reading these as if they were 29.97 frames per second instead of 23.976. If you make DCPs from NTSC (US) DVD rips using DCP-o-matic 2.14.27 or above you are strongly advised to upgrade. After the upgrade, if you have projects containing such files you will need to open them, right-click on any DVD-rip files and select ‘Re-examine Content’.

Other things fixed by this release are:

Any brave souls who want to experiment a little may be interested in the test version 2.15.72 available from here. It includes a new tool to write DCPs to EXT2-formatted drives. If you do want to try it, please read the notes first, then dive in and let me know how you get on!

15th May 2020

DCP-o-matic 2.14.33 was released. This release fixes downloading of certificates from Christie's website, and adds experimental builds for Ubuntu 20.04 and Fedora 32. I hope everybody is doing OK out there!

27th April 2020

I have been developing a new tool for DCP-o-matic which can write EXT2-formatted drives (containing DCPs) from Windows, macOS and Linux. However, it needs some testing. Please get in touch if you are interested in testing it!

29th March 2020

I hope everybody is keeping as well as can be expected in these troubling times. I am lucky in that I don't depend on the DCP-o-matic project for my main income, and my day job is (currently) continuing normally on a work-from-home basis. If your one-off donations or regular subscriptions to DCP-o-matic are causing you any financial difficulty please do not hesitate to cancel or postpone them.
