Deja Soft releases Deja Edit Version 3 Posted: 28/05/2020
Deja Soft releases Deja Edit Version 3

DejaSoft has launched Version 3 of its media file synchronising tool DejaEdit.

DejaEdit is an essential application for productions enabling Avid editors to work together from any location. It ensures media and bins are copied securely in the background, between each remote editing station or Nexus / EditShare storage system.

Version 3 enhances editors' user experience, provides improved workflow management, efficiency, and additional reliable security features. These new developments are crucial toolsets that support producers and post supervisors in simplifying complex media file sharing activities across the entire production process.

Highlights in DejaEdit 3 include the option for users to use their own S3 account for Cloud media storage; upgraded “Private and Public” bin sharing abilities; sophisticated “Folder Support”; “Notifications”; partial media downloads to each editor; License key safeguards; and the brand new DejaEdit Manager feature.

DejaEdit uses an intuitive “email” style interface, presented within the Avid environment, where bins and metadata can be shared with other users by simply dropping it into the Outbox, ToSet or ToVFX folders. Version 3 now allows editors to add subfolders to these pre-set folders to further organise shared media assets. A new notification system now alerts editors to available content and location.

Cinegy announces TURBOCUT - Making Editing with Adobe Premiere Faster than Ever Posted: 28/05/2020
Cinegy announces TURBOCUT - Making Editing with Adobe Premiere Faster than Ever

Cinegy today announced TURBOCUT, a new Adobe CC plug-in which significantly accelerates the editing of H.264/HEVC by utilising the NVIDIA GPU’s hardware decoder. This announcement coincides with Adobe releasing version 14.2 of Adobe Premiere with several new features added, but still missing NVIDIA hardware accelerated editing and using the NVIDIA GPU for decoding H.264 and HEVC.

As Jan Weigner, CEO Cinegy GmbH explained, “For many years, tens of thousands of users have been using the Daniel2 Plug-in for Adobe CC, which already offered the NVIDIA accelerated export of H.264 and HEVC. So when we accelerated the editing and import features, it was obvious that the original product name didn’t match the main goal of the plug-in with the Daniel2 video codec technology. TURBOCUT enables faster editing and production with better video quality and it’s also much easier to remember than Daniel2 Plugin for Adobe CC!

Why DejaEdit is considered an indispensable Collaborative tool in Film Productions Posted: 22/05/2020
Why DejaEdit is considered an indispensable Collaborative tool in Film Productions

Anna Knochenhauer is a well-respected Stockholm-based film producer/ post-producer with impressive titles to her name which include the likes of “Euphoria” featuring Alicia Vikander; “Welcome to Sweden” season 2 starring Jason Priestly and others.

Carving a successful career of VFX-heavy feature films and drama series, she declares DejaEdit is a revolutionary film tool that should be included in every production as industry standard. She uses DejaEdit in all her productions now, including recent films “Alone in Space” (2018), “White Wall” (2020) and “We Got This” (2020).

DejaEdit is a media file synchroniser that gives editors the ability to collaborate super-efficiently between multiple remote Avid editing platforms. “I depend on DejaEdit for all my productions because it ensures that the media files and timelines that we have created or imported in one connected system are shared and mirrored to the local or network storage of other connected systems. It all takes place quickly, securely and automatically in the background... 
The fact that DejaEdit ensures all media is pushed automatically to all connected Avids means that the Assistant Editor (AE) or Editors don’t ever have to search for any missing media files. DejaEdit has saved us a lot of time and headaches."

Sinclair Broadcast Group to use Marquis Broadcast production storage optimisation and management tools Posted: 13/02/2020
Sinclair Broadcast Group to use Marquis Broadcast production storage optimisation and management tools

Sinclair Broadcast Group, one of the largest television broadcast companies in America, is deploying Marquis Broadcast’s Analysis Parking software with a new enterprise monitoring dashboard for its many facilities across the United States. During its expansion, Sinclair Broadcast Group has always focused on optimising best practices for its news technology and operations. Part of this focus was to streamline and simplify the management and monitoring of multiple Avid NEXIS® systems, helping users manage Avid projects and valuable storage space more efficiently.

Sinclair Broadcast initially deployed Marquis Broadcast’s Analysis Parking in three major sites. The software understands the relationships between Avid projects, folders, bins and media, and runs automated Avid NEXIS analytics and visualization processes, enabling each station to maximise the use of space on their Avid NEXIS storage systems.

Paul Spinelli, director of engineering at Sinclair Broadcast Group, explains: “As a group, we’re continually evaluating new technologies that can realise further operational benefits and efficiencies. Our goal is to standardise technologies and workflows across all our Avid news operations, which now total over 60 sites. The new systems enable the recovery of large amounts of blocked-out – but usable – space and offers detailed enterprise-wide analytics on our Avid storage.”

Sundance Nominee This is Not a Burial, Its a Resurrection Edited in DaVinci Resolve Posted: 07/02/2020
Sundance Nominee This is Not a Burial, Its a Resurrection Edited in DaVinci Resolve

Blackmagic Design today announced that DaVinci Resolve Studio was used to edit, grade and finish Lemohang Jeremiah Mosese's fiction feature debut, “This Is Not a Burial, It's a Resurrection.”

The film, which has its international premiere at Sundance Film Festival, was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize in the World Cinema Dramatic competition. Global sales rights have now been picked up by Memento Film's cinema arthouse label, Artscope.

"This project was very personal to me, as it drew on real events from my grandmother’s life in southern Africa for inspiration," explains Lemohang, who directed, edited and delivered the feature in just six months.

Normally based in Berlin, he traveled to his birth country of Lesotho to complete production, before finalizing the edit at Uhuru Productions in Cape Town. The grade was then delivered by colorist Nic Apostoli, at nearby Comfort and Fame Studios.

“Using Lesotho as a location was wonderful, but it did bring its own set of challenges. Largely made up of locals, most of the cast had never been in front of a camera, and there was no electricity or other infrastructure to speak of," said Lemohang.

To get around this, Lemohang and his assistant acquired a generator for power and set up a temporary edit suite on location using quad core Mac Pros. It was here that they transcoded all of the rushes, and assembled a rough cut.

“With no electricity or working infrastructure to speak of, we really put DaVinci Resolve through its paces. It's testament to the software's overall stability that we didn't experience any performance related issues while on set. I also like how modern and fresh the UI is; it actually makes the process of editing fun.

"Going into post production, I had so many ideas, and Resolve made the job of pulling together the cut, so much simpler. I was then able to shape the story once back in Cape Town, using the NLE and retiming tools in Resolve to finesse the story’s narrative, building in tension subtly.

"A few years ago, I'd actually stopped editing altogether," Lemohang concludes. "My previous NLE had become too difficult to use, and very prone to crashing. When I tried DaVinci Resolve for the first time, I rediscovered my passion and enthusiasm for editing. It's a whole other world! Being able to complete post production using a single piece of software makes so much more sense to me creatively. I haven't looked back since."
