Intelligent Assistance has launched prEdit, their pre-editing tool for developing paper cuts (a.k.a. radio cut) from transcripts. It lets producers or editors cut transcripts into selects.
You can add and update log notes with auto-complete logging fields. prEdit previews the video for any clip, subclip, paper cut or section of paper cut. And it exports to Excel spreadsheets and Final Cut Pro, or Premiere Pro sequences.
Reports can be further processed in Excel for formatting and additional detail, if required.
prEdit is available now from AssistedEditing.com and carries a manufacturer's suggested retail price of US$395. However, a $295 introductory special runs through Aug. 31.
