PostWorks Announces Final Cut Pro Support and Rental AvailabilityNew FCP Systems Support Internal Workflows and Editorial Clientele (September 18, 2006) www.pwny.com), the east coast's most comprehensive full-service film and High Definition post facility, today announced several initiatives representing its official support for Apple's increasingly popular Final Cut Pro (FCP) digital nonlinear editing system.
First, the company has recently purchased numerous FCP systems for its rental inventory, each of which is currently in-use on a major project. Also, the company has integrated several more FCP workstations, each equipped with an AJA KONA 3 HD/SD video capture card, into its workflow for quick access to FCP-based HD projects, and to create FCP media in response to growing client requests.
"These new Final Cut systems have quickly grown to become indispensable additions to our facility, and are not only used in-house for format conversion and mastering, but also for complete offline system rentals for our clients' long-term editorial needs," said Rob DeMartin, COO and co-owner of PostWorks, New York.

DeMartin added that file I/O is a major service that PostWorks provides, in areas ranging from direct-to-disk telecine, film scanning and element preparation for optical and animation houses. "The integration of the KONA 3 cards in these systems makes it easier for our clients to maximize the benefits of working in HD without getting too caught up in the seemingly endless list of HD formats," he added.
PostWorks is currently supporting the editors on three independent features working on FCP, "The Pleasure of Your Company," "Trainwreck: My Life as an Idiot" and "Slippery Slope." Several other FCP-based projects are expected to begin working with PostWorks in the weeks ahead.
