FACTS ABOUT INSERT EDIT

Cinedeck Tech

Cinedeck Insert Edit is a game-changing feature allowing efficiency breakthroughs for post workflows that have never been thought possible. Read on to find out why it matters and how it works.
RADICALLY NEW WORKFLOW

Cinedeck Insert-Edit provides a radically new post workflow. The resulting file after Insert-Edit is NOT a different file or some form of MXF package or Quicklime reference file; it is a flat, fully compatible, normal ProRes, DNxHD or AVC-I file.  Unlike the process of editing the metadata of something like a MXF AS-11 file to point to content newly added into the package, when an insert is done using Cinedeck’s Insert-Edit, you are actually replacing parts of the original flat video and audio essence.

Moreover, because changes are being written into the flat audio and video essence, file compatibility is maintained. The resulting file after inserting is the same file; it’s just that some audio or video frames were replaced.

WHAT DOES IT DO?

Cinedeck Insert-Edit solves the time and resource-sucking problem of repeating an entire export and QC process, just to make a small change in a program, by giving you direct access to the video and audio essence in your flat deliverable files. In other words, Insert Edit allows content to be accurately replaced in a file based on timecode in and out points, just like working on tape.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Cinedeck Insert-Edit understands where the content is located in the files, somewhat the same way a tape machine understands where frames reside on a tape, allowing you to accurately go in and replace specific video or audio content. So instead of exporting an entire program after making a change in your non-linear system, you just export the changed section – just the minimum of required content.

Digital Cuts and inserts can also be done from Avid Media Composer and Final Cut Pro, directly to your Cinedeck, making your job even easier.

HOW WILL THIS HELP ME?

Insert-Edit can reduce a multi-hour or multi-day re-export and QC process to just a few minutes by editing new content directly into a ProRes, DNxHD, AVC-lntra, XDCAM HD or JPEG 2000 flat deliverable file!

Instead of a massive multi-step dance to produce a new corrected deliverable file, with Insert-Edit in your arsenal, you simply create a small file containing just the elements you need to replace.

RESULTS OF INSERT EDIT 

  1. The Cinedeck system can change MOV, MXF OpAtom, MXF Op1A or the more specific DPP Op1A files, containing ProRes, DNxHD, AVC-lntra, XDCAM HD or JPEG 2000 essence.
  2. Because changes are being written into the flat audio and video essence, file compatibility is maintained.
  3. The resulting file after inserting is the same file; it’s just that some audio or video frames were replaced.
