Skramsoft Announces First Cut DV Cutting StationEdit your own professional-quality movie within hours (August 23, 2005)
Lights, camera, action! From the movie capital of the world, comes First Cut - the ultimate high-speed tool to edit your own professional-quality movie within hours.
Not only is First Cut the fastest and most user-friendly DV Cutting Station in the universe but, at an introductory price of $149, Mac OS X users can afford to throw in the red carpet and popcorn for free.
Cecil B. DeMille, Steven Spielberg, Ridley Scott, Quentin Tarantino, Martin Scorsese...Just add your name to the list. Download First Cut and, within hours, your personal masterpiece is ready to premiere. Never has it been so easy to make your own movies thanks to First Cut.
Perhaps your ambitions arent so lofty? Busy parents with no time to edit years/months of family video memories? Youve lovingly recorded Junior since the day he was born but now hes graduated kindergarten - even Junior can use First Cuts idiot-proof controls to speedily edit his own life-story into a viewable format which wont make the grandparents fall asleep on the couch.
Like all great innovations, First Cut is ultimately simple - a user-friendly software effortlessly enabling a whole new generation of movie-makers to project their visions onto screens big and small, without breaking the bank. Whats more, First Cuts easy-to-learn tutorial brings novice DV editors up to speed in under half an hour.
Yet First Cuts simplicity doesnt for a moment diminish its value to skilled professionals whose workload will be significantly lessened by First Cuts revolutionary Clip Marker system - reducing large chunks of DV video into usable clips in a flash.
And how does First Cut go where no other similar DV Cutting Station has gone before? By enabling users to run their footage and place markers known as ?Hotshots - creating unlimited visual memory locations at the press of a button - without even stopping. But thats not it. Professional editors, directors and producers will relish First Cuts completely new concept of movie transport control. The timeline and mouse driven movie controller are rendered obsolete, replaced with variable-degree fixed-time increments. There?s simply no faster way to get though any amount of DV footage.
Both straightforward and affordable, First Cut achieves the same results as more pricey DV editing software - in just a fraction of the time!
But dont let its simplicity fool you. Created by movie music editor Ashley Revell (Sin City, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and The Chronicles of Riddick) and veteran Mac software developer Janusz Skarbek, First Cut is the result of two busy professionals slowed down and frustrated by unwieldy software.
?When youre on an editing deadline, time is everything, explains Revell. ?For Logging, Spotting and Clip making, there was nothing available on the market that operated fast enough for my needs. Jan and I worked together to create First Cut literally as a means to an end. It was only when First Cut was finished that we realized what a breakthrough this represents to both industry professionals and home video makers.
Says Skarbek: ?From network broadcasters to student film makers, First Cut is the fastest way to go. Forensic investigators, scientific researchers, Reality TV editors and other people who have to wade through enormous amounts of DV footage - their job just got a whole lot easier.?
