This article announces that CineForm Incorporated's new versions of its high definition video (HDV) software editing products are the first to offer special support for the progressive CineFrame modes in Sony's HDR-FX1 and HVR-Z1 HDV camcorders. Sony's HDV camcorders offer special progressive modes called CineFremie which record progressive 24, 25, or 3 0 frame-per-second video sequences on tape using an interlaced MPEG2 50i or 60i signal. However, if film output is desired at project completion, it is preferable to edit using a 24p workflow, and not use the interlaced tape format. The new features in CineForm's Aspect HD and Connect HD uniquely extract a 24 fps progressive sequence from Sony's CineFrame-24 or CineFrame-25 modes, which is then stored in CineForm Intermediate format. The resulting files can then be edited using Adobe Premiere Pro, Sony Vegas, or other audio/video interleaved-compatible applications. Aspect HD enables Adobe Premiere Pro to achieve unprecedented real-time editing performance for HD post-production. On a modern desktop PC, Aspect HD will edit up to four 1080i HDV streams simultaneously, including over 40 HD-optimized transitions, effects, and color corrections, plus graphic and title overlays--all without the need for specialized hardware. Aspect HD is built on patent-pending CineForm Intermediate software components including CineForm's Visually Perfect post-production codec and CineForm's video effects and processing pipeline.
