Editing on Mac OS X™ with Final Cut Pro™
Edit in Final Cut Pro™ while using the highest quality 10 bit HD-SDI video connection to HD decks including, HDCAM™ SR, HDCAM™, HD-D5™ and DVCPRO HD™, as well as SD decks such as Digital Betacam™. DeckLink support for Final Cut Pro™ allows you to batch capture from decks and play back the timeline with RT Extreme™ real time effects, all with absolute sample accurate AV sync. DeckLink HD cards support many of the advanced Final Cut Pro™ features such as 10 bit rendering, RT Extreme™, multi channel audio, deck control, support for JPEG, DV, DVCPRO, DVCPRO HD, 8 & 10 bit uncompressed media and more.
DeckLink HD Extreme is qualified by Apple™ for Final Cut Pro™ compatibility. Blackmagic Design works closely with Apple™ on developing our QuickTime™ drivers, so you know you're getting the best combination for high end editing. DeckLink HD Extreme 3D can even edit with DVCPRO HD™ media for down converted playback with RT effects.
Editing with Adobe® Premiere Pro®
DeckLink HD Extreme 3D is the highest quality editing solution for Adobe Premiere Pro and included with DeckLink are a full suite of Premiere Pro plug-ins including deck control. You get a complete solution with nothing extra to buy. Play out through the DeckLink video output using 8 and 10 bit uncompressed AVI and QuickTime™ files, as well as Motion JPEG which can all be played back on the same Premiere Pro timeline without rendering.
DeckLink fully supports Premiere Pro's 8 channels of audio capture and playback via HD/SD-SDI, great for 5.1 surround sound editing. DeckLink also includes an ASIO compliant audio playback driver for multi channel audio. QuickTime™ uncompressed 8 and 10 bit files, from Mac OS X™ systems, can also be played back for cross-platform media sharing!
Blackmagic Design works closely with Adobe on developing our Premiere Pro drivers, with features including RT effects, RS-422 deck control, and frame accurate batch capture. This assures a fully professional solution.
Online JPEG for Adobe Premiere Pro
On Windows, Blackmagic's full resolution (1920 x 1080) professional quality compressed HD codec can capture JPEG AVI files in real time using Premiere Pro. Unlike HDV and DVCPRO HD which uses reduced resolution 1440x1080 video, Blackmagic's Online JPEG maintains the full resolution 1920x1080 resolution of HD video without the huge file size of uncompressed HD video. Blackmagic's Online JPEG is so efficient that full motion 1080i HD video can be recorded at only 12 MB per second vs. a massive 119 MB per second for uncompressed HD video.
Blackmagic's compressed files are so compact, that 1080 HD video can be captured to a single internal hard disk or easily transported on a portable Firewire drive! Online JPEG is compatible with Premiere Pro and After Effects and can even be used by editors without Blackmagic capture cards making it one of the most versatile compressed codecs available.
Broadcast Graphic Design with Adobe® After Effects®
Adobe After Effects is one of the most popular tools for broadcast graphics and animation, and DeckLink HD Extreme 3D has special features to make sure you can build a complete integrated solution with this great app! After Effects is fully QuickTime™ based, so it works with all DeckLink media. On Windows™ you can also open and render Blackmagic uncompressed 10 and 8 bit AVI and QuickTime™ files too. Files can be dropped into Final Cut Pro™ or Premiere Pro timelines without rendering, so you can move media between tools. DeckLink HD Extreme 3D provides full RAM preview playback out of the DeckLink output, so you can always see what you're working on.
If you're not doing editing, then you can use the included Blackmagic Media Express application to remotely capture and output QuickTime™ clips with timecode accuracy. Use the Blackmagic Software Codec so you can work with media even when a DeckLink card is not installed on the system. There is no better solution for using After Effects for high end work than DeckLink HD Extreme 3D.
Broadcast Paint with Adobe® Photoshop®
Adobe Photoshop is the standard for graphics. When used in television you can finally bring in some of the world's most talented designers into your workflow, without needing to retrain them on custom paint systems. DeckLink HD cards include Photoshop plug-ins, so you can directly capture and output still frames from within the Photoshop application itself.
If you're working with 10 bit HD/SD-SDI, you can even import and export 16 bit Photoshop™ images for full quality. Use DeckLink HD Extreme 3D keying to export and key graphics from the video input using Photoshop alpha channels. You can also use Blackmagic Media Express to capture the still images from broadcast decks. Outputting Photoshop graphics from DeckLink HD Extreme 3D lets you see the correct color and the effects of video interlace and field movement. DeckLink HD Extreme 3D use unity gain on, so you can't get illegal 100% RGB video levels, eliminating surprises when graphics are output to tape!
Real time RAM preview is supported directly from the DeckLink HD Extreme 3D video output, so you can see what your video is going to look like before rendering. You can always see a live preview as you're working and adjusting layers and settings for a fully interactive workflow.
