Media 100 sw due Nov 15
Media 100, a division of BorisFX, today announced that it is taking pre-orders of , its nonlinear editing application that uses media captured by Media 100i or Media 100 HD systems to edit, composite, mix and export to DVD or the Web. Media 100 sw is a companion to existing Media 100 systems, and can seamlessly interchange projects, programs and media with Media 100 HD and all media from Media 100i. All existing import and export workflows, including sending to third party compressors for MPEG2 for DVD or MPEG4 for web, continue to work as they do with the current Media 100 HD product. The product offers the ability to edit SD and HD material using the familiar Media 100 interface; full media and graphics import/export capabilities; full support for all Media 100 codecs; and real-time effects and accelerated rendering. Media 100 sw is expected to ship on November 15th for $400.
Additional features include a fully integrated Boris Graffiti vector-based titling solution; seamless interchange of media, bins and programs to and from Media 100 HD; support for media from Media 100i systems; and a comprehensive tutorial. A future standalone version will add support for FireWire capture and output from a range of DV and HDV decks and be available as an upgrade to the companion version.
