Quantel Launches New AAF Workflow Tools
unveiled new AAF offline-to-online interchange tools from Avid Xpress Pro and Avid Media Composer Adrenaline to its eQ and iQ post and DI systems. Both eQ and iQ can now directly import AAF v1.1 metadata created offline.
Segment names, effects transitions, complex effects descriptions, audio splits and fades, time stretch commands and more are all part of the metadata set. Existing eQ and iQ tools such as Reel Lock and Resolution Co-existence allow low-res offline images to sync on the fly to the online conform.
At IBC2005, Quantel demonstrated how the new features allow interoperability from Apple Final Cut via Automatic Duck and adds existing AAF interchange with Digidesign ProTools and Sadie digital audio workstations.
