groupcut ups workflow
GFF today unveiled , its new server-based modular logging and editing solution for video-workgroups running on Mac OS X. groupcut captures and stores large amounts of video footage, integrating with FinalCut Pro and AVID. Material can be logged, categorized, and edited quickly and easily by non-technical staff. groupcut works with preview and broadcast resolutions simultaneously and supports tape-based or tape-less workflows. Live or prerecorded footage is captured with the recorder, and a central database located at the server stores preview and broadcast files. Essential information inside the logger is extracted according to parameters unique to a specific production. groupcut requires Mac OS 10.4 and is available for €750.
