    Re: Completely Re-imagined

    Did they revamp the Scopes too? Premiere Pro, Resove, and FCPX have nice, colorful, and flexible Scopes.

    Where timewarped clips can be in a multicam group.

     

    This is a good idea, but how would this work? If you change the speed rate wouldn't that modify the sync? There are so many little things that would cause havoc especially in a shared project environment.

    Re: Completely Re-imagined

    DOM Q:

    Every music video I edit is shot in highspeed alexa.

    Pros: Good for slow motion parts of artist.

    Cons: Every clip needs to be timewarped 200% to sync - Timewarped clips cant be multicam'd

    So I timewarp each clip on timeline, add burn in, mixdown, then create multigroup.

    When I lock picture, I replace all the mixdowns w/ burn in by manually punching in timecode from raw and then speeding that up.  This manual method is the part that kills me, so tedious.  I believe premiere can have sped up clips in multigroups.

     

    Another simple way of wording this request would be, adding rendered precomputes to multicam group.

    Re: Completely Re-imagined

    I have to say this network based processing is exciting to me for transcoding.  I hope its affordable and doesnt need nexis or other expensive avid stuff.

    I could see myself having an high core count itx build dedicated to transcoding.

    Hopefully It can work simply using a 10gb nic, crossover cable, and without the need of a monitor, switch etc.

    I am feeling optimistic about this new chapter now.

    Understood. Can the camera shoot in high speed but mark the clip at the base speed you need for sync (e.g. 23.976) so when you ingest no motion FX is needed thus it can be utilized in multicam? If not, transcoding it to burn in the motion FX.

    In the end, I think you are asking multi frame rate multicam support. It would be huge achievement if Avid engineers can figure it out.

    Re: Completely Re-imagined

    I really like this new look.  I can see a lot if Premiere and even some FCPX in there and I think Avid could have done an entire viral marketing campaign around putting the weightlifter icon back on the tool bar!  The quote from the gentleman at the end hits the nail on the head:  Creativity from brain to screen without having the software get in the way.  To me, that’s the biggest plus of any NLE.  Nicely done, Avid!

    Re: Completely Re-imagined

    Yes, it's NOT a reskin, it's a fully new backend, you can tell form the new features.

    1. Considering the introduction of background rendering *and* distrib network rendering it is *definitely* a full rewrite, not some reskin - this kind of work takes long years. I wonder if they went with the old Fusion approach (which was great) ie distrib rendering is for timeline/viewport support, while bkg rendering is for offiline outputs/renders...? If the latter, is Deadline support coming...?
    Distrib render looks like a timeline/viewport supporting feature:
