At the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB)
conference, Sony today announced it is expanding its
relationship with Adobe, in the area of professional
video editing tools.
In addition to its existing XDCAM editing workflow, Sony
has developed a plug in for the F65 CineAlta camera to
work with Adobe Premiere Pro, and is showcasing
high-resolution 4K content production workflows,
interoperability with XDCAM Station, and a more
efficient workflow through operation of production
Sony will unveil playback software to import the F65?s
shot RAW file to the upcoming Adobe Premiere Pro CS6
through a Sony developed plug in. Sony?s software is
scheduled for release in August 2012, and will
facilitate editing of high-resolution F65 RAW footage.
Furthermore, XDCAM's metadata workflow solution,
XMPilot, improves workflow efficiency from field logging
to the editing process. Metadata - such as Assignment
Data, Title, Comment, EssenceMark, and GPS information
in the XDCAM stored in media - will be shown on Adobe?s
Prelude CS6 GUI, enabling effective searches.
In addition, EssenceMark information is shown on a
timeline of GUI, enabling users to check the target
scene for shot mark positions. For more efficiency, the
metadata is saved as Adobe standard XMP files, used for
online editing with the upcoming Adobe Premiere Pro CS6.
At NAB 2012, Adobe is revealing the Creative Suite 6
video tools, which are expected to ship in the first
half of 2012.
Sony is showing workflow demonstrations with the latest
Adobe Premiere Pro CS6, in XDCAM workflow and SRMASTER
4K workflow area at NAB 2012.
