    My command line is pretty short: "dpx2cf *.dng c:\dng\new.avi -f23.976 -q5"
    (Because the dpx2cf.exe is in the same folder as the dng's.)

    If i set "-q6" (not mentioned in the official CF2DPX manual) the filesize is 54MB.

    Any other commands to add?
    I did this. I put DPX2CF in my DNG folder

    DPX2CF *.DNG test.avi -q6 -f 23.976
    The resulting Cineform RAW file takes about 2 seconds to create, contains both 1 second clips and is 63MB in size

    As for ease of use, maybe I'll start playing around with making a batch file gui that makes it simpler to use. Lots of easy to use programs that do that.

    Thanks for the step by step mintcheerios. I've been using Cineform (though never the raw codec) for years and have been wondering if I could keep it with this camera. I'm going to be trying this next week.

    Oh yes please, that would be a great relieve.

    Thanks, Frank

    It will look like this and allow you to select the directory. I wish I had some raw DNG files from the Blackmagic cam to test. I wonder if they are going to be wrapped in a wrapper, or just individual files like the ikonoskop

    I got it working. I left the instructions here along with the download link: http://eyepatchfilms.com/?p=903 if you want to test it out. This is very very basic right now.

    Fantastic...I stopped using cineform when adobe's Mercury playback engine was released. I bought the upgrade to studio premium for $49. looks like money well spent.
    This should be a sticky.

    DPX2CF supports a lot other RAW still formats by the way, like TIF, CR2 etc:

    You just have to replace the file extension in the script.
