NAB 2015 Tech: Vizrt Editing & Workflows
Vizrt | Booth SL2417 | Website: www.vizrt.com
At the NAB conference Vizrt will demonstrate a smarter integration enabling efficient video editing and productions workflows in the latest Adobe software.
Vizrt will demonstrate the latest integrations between Viz One media asset management (MAM) system, Viz Artist 3D design software, and Adobe After Effects CC, Adobe Premiere Pro CC — both part of Adobe Creative Cloud — and Adobe Anywhere.
HTML video and remote access
The latest version of Adobe Premiere Pro CC features a new Viz One HTML video panel that speeds the recall and playback of video content while editing. The Viz One panel displays video with HTML and gives editors in Adobe Premiere Pro complete access to all of their Viz One media assets including search, browsing, and proxy editing.
Adobe Anywhere extends remote access to Viz One media asset capabilities. Full resolution files are accessed on Viz One and Adobe Anywhere provides a viewing stream based on the available bandwidth to the nonlinear editor (NLE). Video and graphics rendering takes place on the Adobe Anywhere server, which fosters realtime collaboration and media file sharing between creative team members from any location with highspeed LAN or WAN connectivity.
New design integrations
Designers now get more out of the integration between Adobe After Effects CC and Viz Artist, Vizrt’s 3D modeling and animation software. Adobe After Effects CC compositions are easily imported into Viz Artist with a multilayer composition import tool. The import creates subscenes using nested graphics channels that have 2D and 3D layers. Text paragraphics elements are now imported with editable elements when using Adobe After Effects CC. Additionally, control text and control image plugins are automatically assigned creating a fast transition from Adobe After Effects composition to a template ready for onair use in Viz Artist.
Graphics for editing systems
At NAB 2015, Vizrt and Adobe will also demonstrate an Adobe Premiere Pro CC content panel that enables tighter integration between Vizrt’s graphics plugin for NLEs — part of the Viz Trio and Viz Pilot live graphics systems. Rather than burning graphics into video and rendering a final version of the clip within the graphics plugin, this Adobe Premiere Pro CC plugin lets editors just save the graphics metadata with the newly edited video. The assets are then saved to Viz One. The video and graphics elements are moved into the playlist or rundown for playout to air.
As a result, people in the control room can make last minute changes to the graphics right up until they’re needed for the live show. The video and graphics elements can now be composited and rendered as finished clips when they are played out to air by Viz Trio or Viz Pilot.
