Media 100 To Support Apple FCP XML, AAF
Amsterdam--Media 100, a unit of Optibase, has announced that it will support Apple's Final Cut Pro XML and the AAF interchange formats in an upcoming version of its 844/X editing and realtime compositing system. With XML import of Final Cut Pro projects and import of timelines from AAF-compatible systems such as Avid's Media Composer, creative professionals will be able to streamline the process of creating offline edits on other systems and allow them to utilize 844/X for unlimited layer compositing and 10-bit uncompressed finishing.
"844/X has the speed and quality that users are looking for to finish projects and add that extra creative flair to their content," said Mike Savello, vice president of worldwide sales and marketing at Media 100.
"Avid's Media Composer has always been popular in post production for offline editing and now Apple's Final Cut Pro is becoming just as prevalent. By adding support for AAF, the industry-standard, and XML, Final Cut Pro's native data interchange format, to the OMF support that is available today with 844/X, we are enabling users of other systems to better take advantage of the 844/X editing, compositing and effects capabilities to finish their projects."
