Pinnacle Systems has announced CinÃ©Wave 4.6, a major enhancement to its real-time editing, compositing and audio production system for the Apple Power Mac. The product of a three-year collaboration with Panasonic and Apple, CinÃ©Wave 4.6 provides full support for multi-stream real-time effects with simultaneous HD and SD video out for Panasonicâ€™s DVCPRO HD (DVCPRO100) format.
CinÃ©Wave 4.6 will also provide complete support, including overcrank and undercrank, for Panasonicâ€™s VariCam progressive scan, variable frame rate HD camcorder. In addition, CinÃ©Wave will support capture and transcoding of HD formats and frame rates to DV100 from most legacy HD decks and devices.
Pinnacle CinÃ©Wave 4.6 features include real-time multi-stream DVCPRO HD editing and effects in all formats and frame rates with simultaneous monitoring of video on SD and HD monitors; capture and compress in real time to DV100 from all HD formats and frame rates through HD-SDI legacy decks and devices; and seamless transcoding of formats and frame rates in real time (e.g. 1080/24PsF to 720/24p).
Pinnacleâ€™s CinÃ©Wave delivers real-time performance for SD and HD to modern Power Macs. Exclusive CinÃ©Wave features include mixed formats within a timeline, 16-bit video support, full support for Apple RT Extreme, real-time native RGBA support, real-time animation codec support, real-time HD (16:9) pan and scan down conversion with keyframeable controls to uncompressed SD (4:3), simultaneous live SD and HD outputs, and more.
In addition to DV100, CinÃ©Wave offers real-time uncompressed HD effects with simultaneous keyframeable downconversion to SD. CinÃ©Waveâ€™s new, fully keyframeable real-time HD video controls include phase for color adjustment, setup for adjusting black range, video levels for adjusting brightness and chroma level for adjusting saturation.
CinÃ©Wave 4.6 will be available for download to all current CinÃ©Wave 4 customers by June. Owners of versions prior to CinÃ©Wave 4 can purchase a CinÃ©Wave 4 software upgrade from authorized Pinnacle resellers.
