Making an Unencrypted DCP from an Encrypted DCP

Post by stacec »

Couldn't find this example on the forum or in the guidebook, so figured I'd post. Never been faced with this situation before, but here we are. Haven't tested this before, but would it be similar to making a DCP from a DCP, with the added step of unlocking with the KDM in DCP-O-Matic, then re running it without encryption? Or do I need to make a new DCP altogether?

Cheers in advance.

Very simple and straightforward - Load encrypted DCP, add (D)KDM, create new DCP with (uncheck 'Encrypted' under DCP). The new DCP will be unencrypted. If all image parameters of the new DCP are the same as the original DCP, the conversion will take place without any recompression, thus very quickly.
