Before you start generating the .CineLink files, you should follow these steps:

  1. Create the folder where your generated CineLink files will be placed to.

  2. Use Cinegy Convert Profile Editor to create a proper profile for your transcoding tasks.

  3. Use the Cinegy Watch Folder Service configurator to create the watch folder that will monitor the folder with your CineLink files.

  4. Make sure Cinegy Convert Agent Manager is properly configured and running. Check if Cinegy Convert Agent Manager has a valid established connection to Cinegy Process Coordination Service.

  5. Start Cinegy Convert Monitor to control the transcoding tasks processed by agents.

Use Cinegy Convert Client to select the clips with the specified metadata and defined In/Out points, where appropriate. Check the transcoding settings configuration. Once this is done, you are ready to generate the .CineLink files.


Press the "Generate" button to start the process. The following window appears allowing you to choose the required folder in which your cinelink files will be created:


As the result, depending on your transcoding settings, a single combined CineLink file with media from all clips or multiple CineLink files for each selected clip will be created.

The transcoding task will be started; its processing can be monitored via Cinegy Convert Agent Manager:
