Singular Software (http://www.singularsoftware.com), has released Presto for Final Cut Pro. The app is designed to simplify the creation of presentation videos.
Working alongside Final Cut Pro, Singular Software Presto synchronizes, arranges, and edits the footage of the presenter, presentation slides, and video taken of the screen. The application utilizes sophisticated computer tracking and image-matching technology to simplify the entire editing process for creating presentation videos, according to Singular Software CEO Bruce Sharpe. Users need simply to import video of the presenter, screen, and presentation slides into Final Cut Pro, and Singular Software Presto will work its magic, he adds.
Singular Software Presto creates a precisely timed slide track with bright slide images in place of the screen video by automatically synchronizing the original slide images with video of the screen. The application’s tracking technology captures the presenter to place alongside the slides in appealing two-up layouts. The resulting video can be used as is or customized with the provided templates and wizards. You can export the slide track back into Final Cut Pro for rendering.
Singular Software Presto is available to purchase at an introductory price of US$199 until May 31. The regular price is $249. When purchased together with PluralEyes for Final Cut Pro, the price is $249 until May 31. After that the regular price for both is $299.
