CinePaint software

just surfed past this - looks very interesting.
CinePaint "CinePaint is a collection of software tools for paint manipulation and image processing. It can be used for motion picture frame-by-frame retouching, dirt removal, wire rig removal, render repair, background plates, and 3d model textures." This program is very powerful. In fact it used by many movie studies including Sony Pictures Imageworks.

there was an option for this in the early 90s Adobe Photoshop/Premiere bundle but i never saw it reappear. Premiere filmstrips could be imported to PS and manipulated frame by frame in manual or semi-auto mode then exported back to Premiere.

..tnx for reminding me Michael Lehnert.... or Santo or.... super8 - the forum of Rednex, Wannabees and Pretenders...

Premiere filmstrip format CAN be imported into the newer photoshop versions. Filmstrip format is not the best option for manipulating long sequences because the filmstrip image gets very large and eats all the computer memory. If using photoshop and premiere, better option is to export numbered bmp sequence from premiere and then manipulate them in PS using the built-in automation recording.
