With common user interface elements shared across all the applications, Production Suite provides a seamless, intuitive and integrated workflow for film and video production.
Production Suite has everything you need to create commercials, on-air promos, corporate videos and long-form productions right in the box. Whether you’re a specialist in a large post house or a one-person band with a PowerBook, Production Suite has everything it takes to go from raw DV, SD and now HD footage to a finished title with unparalleled aplomb. Edit, design and score your project using Final Cut Pro HD, Motion and Soundtrack — then send it to DVD Studio Pro to author your finished DVD for replication.
Final Cut Pro HD and Motion share timeline data so there’s no need to render interim files when switching between editing and motion graphics. Cuts, blend modes, layers and motion paths applied in Final Cut Pro HD are directly editable within Motion’s timeline. Titles graphics and animations made in Motion automatically update the Final Cut Pro HD timeline. Since both applications leave source files untouched, you get the highest image quality when you output the completed production. You can even launch Motion directly from Final Cut Pro HD’s timeline just by clicking.
When you’re ready to author your title on DVD, simply save your Final Cut Pro HD project as a QuickTime reference movie or drag and drop a Motion project directly into DVD Studio Pro. The underlying media files are automatically encoded to MPEG-2 using DVD Studio Pro 3’s high-quality compression engine. Encoding occurs in the background so you can keep working. Add menus, transitions, camera angles, subtitles or even slide shows without stopping to render, then burn your title to DVD or DLT for replication.
Final Cut Pro HD and Motion’s real-time capabilities help you realize your vision almost as quickly as you can imagine it. By tapping into the power of the Power Mac G5 and Mac OS X, you can literally watch your ideas unfold before your eyes. Real-time previews in Final Cut Pro HD and Motion show you how effects and edits look without rendering. You can even preview HD in real-time.
Production Suite delivers the industry’s best applications for creating high-impact video, motion graphics, titles, original audio and DVDs, all in one powerhouse package. Production Suite also offers a short learning curve for Final Cut Pro editors aspiring to design motion graphics, compose music or author DVDs.
