Pinnacle Systems Ships CineWave RT

By DMN Staff Writer
Pinnacle Systems, Inc. is shipping CineWave RT, an editing platform for Apple's Final Cut Pro that offers real-time editing, effects, and compositing with uncompressed standard definition (SD) video. Users can now perform keyframeable image control and motion effects, as well as create transitions on up to two tracks of video and two tracks of graphics with alpha channels in real-time.

CineWave RT brings to the desktop a level of capability previously reserved for the expensive, high-end post-production systems. Video professionals can work with completely uncompressed SD video to ensure pristine image quality for output. Real-time motion control of video and graphics, image control, and transitions eliminate much of the time consuming rendering and disk space demands typically associated with creating video effects and transitions. Unlike systems using preview effects, CineWave RT's real-time powered effects and transitions can be mastered out to tape without rendering. The result is greater productivity and uninterrupted creative workflow. CineWave RT also allows users to perform real-time effects on any combination of CineOffline SD resolutions and full, uncompressed quality clips within the same sequence without rendering.
