The GIMP is the GNU Image Manipulation Program. It is used to edit and manipulate images. It can load and save a variety of image formats and can be used to convert between formats.
This package includes a special version which was forked from The GIMP to to create an open-sourec graphic editor that matches the cinema post- production needs.
It is a retouching program designed to work best with 35mm film and other high resolution high dynamic range images. It is the most popular open source tool in the motion picture industry -- used in Scooby-Doo, Harry Potter, Stuart Little and other feature films. CinePaint is used for painting of background mattes and for frame-by-frame retouching of movies. CinePaint is available for Linux, Macintosh OS X, Windows, and other popular operating systems.
The extended 16-bit color range of CinePaint appeals to 35mm cinemato- graphers and professional still photographers because film scanners are capable of greater color bit-depth than can be displayed on a monitor or can be manipulated in typical programs. However, CinePaint is a general- purpose tool useful for working on images for motion pictures, print, and the Web. CinePaint supports many file formats, both conventional formats such as JPEG, PNG, TIFF, and TGA images -- and more exotic cinema formats such as Cineon and OpenEXR.
