McQ Software Systems today released a 2.0 upgrade to its Cutter edit controller software for the Macintosh. Cutter runs on any 68040 or higher Mac with RS-422 serial ports. It turns the Mac into a cuts-only videotape edit controller. The new version adds support for edit control during conversion of 24 FPS progressive HDTV material to 30 FPS interlaced NTSC video, or 30i to 24p for audio layback.

In addition to the new interformat capability, Cutter 2.0 also adds support for add-in PCI RS-422 serial port boards, making it possible to run Cutter on G3 and G4 Macintoshes not equipped with modem and printer ports.

Cutter's features include a 5,000 edit memory, auto assembly, list management, text notes, tape logging, split A/V edits, support for four audio channels and edit list import and export in CMX, Grass Valley and Sony formats, among others. Cutter supports both NTSC and PAL formats in addition to the new support for 24p machines.

Cutter 2.0 is available now for $795. For more information, visit http://www.McQPro.com/html/Cutter.html.
