Pinnacle Systems today unveiled a system that will bring realtime editing and effects to Apple's Final Cut Pro 2.0. The standard-definition version of CineWave is schedule to ship this summer.

According to Pinnacle, the new system will deliver real-time special effects with uncompressed, standard definition media by leveraging advancements in Apple's Final Cut Pro 2. Video professionals working with uncompressed standard definition (SD) video on G4 systems will be able to create motion graphics effects, dissolves and wipes in real time. The company also says that users of the HD option will see some acceleration for effects and transitions.

CineWave, with real-time effects and transitions, will be demonstrated at NAB in April in Las Vegas. The realtime SD system will run $6,495. Pinnacle and Apple are also in the process of qualifying the non-RT version of CineWave with Final Cut Pro 2. Release is scheduled for May 2001.

CineWave includes Commotion Pro 3.1, Knoll Light Factory, a full version of Apple's Final Cut Pro and the Targa Cine Engine. CineWave provides numerous editing capabilities for acquisition, post-production, and delivery in any format, including DV, DigiBeta, uncompressed 601, PAL, NTSC, 1080i, 1080p, 720p, 4:3, 16:9 and Web. There are two Digital Tether ports for connecting to a family of SD and HD break-out boxes for flexible I/O options. For more information, visit http://www.pinnaclesys.com.
