PowerProduction Software has released Martini QuickShot Creator (Martini), the first plug-in for post-production visualization. Designed to work within Apple’s Final Cut Pro, Martini (http://www.martiniquickshot.com) lets editors direct additional shots and sequences.

With Martini’s dynamic power, editors no longer need to use black slugs with text explaining what “shot goes here, says PowerProduction Software Chief Technical Officer Paul Clatworthy. From single shots to multi-shot sequences, Martini helps directors and editors create a better final film, he adds.

Loaded with classic and unique shot styles, Martini’s interface guides editors through the quick creation of composite shots. Editors can select a style, such as basic over-the-shoulder shots, two and three shots, and close-ups as well as fight scenes, chase scenes, and other pre-composed multiple shot sequences. Then, editors can choose a location from hundreds of pre-loaded interiors, exteriors, and custom digital location photos.

Martini QuickShot Creator integrates with all PowerProduction Software products, including StoryBoard Quick and StoryBoard Artist. Optimized for Mac OS X, Martini supports Mac OS X 10.4 or higher and Final Cut Pro 6 or higher.

Martini QuickShot Creator is available immediately through the PowerProduction Software worldwide reseller channel and direct from the PowerProduction web site at a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of US199. A fully functioning, seven-day trial version is available for download.
