AV3 Software, developer and distributor of workflow tools for digital media, has announced the latest in its series of Production Power Packs. The latest workflow pairing from AV3 includes Red Giant’s Magic Bullet Grinder bundled with the company’s dialog search solution, Get, at no additional cost.

Designed for Apple Final Cut Pro (FCP) editors working on DSLR projects, this latest AV3 Production Power Pack addresses the complications and time constraints associated with DSLR file preparation and management. With the new Get/Grinder Production Power Pack, editors can breeze through the pre-edit process, says Doug Hynes, director of products, AV3 Software.

In one step, Grinder transcodes DSLR files, making them “edit-ready.” Based on dialogue within the content, editors can then use Get to make their pre-selects, minimizing the need to search for alternate takes while editing. Get also creates clips that have permanent FCP Markers at each instance of dialogue found. Get Markers are searchable from within FCP itself using the Find function and maintain important clip metadata that can be used at any time in the future, even if the project is transferred to another editing application.

AV3 Software’s Production Power Pack consisting of Get (which has a list price pf US$249) and Red Giant’s Magic Bullet Grinder (list price $49) is available now for $249 via the AV3 web site (http://www.av3software.com). Get works with FCP versions 6 and 7. AV3 intends to support FCP X and have a compatible version available as soon as possible. Production Power Packs are sold exclusively at AV3 Software’s web store.
