My good friends at Automatic Duck have been churning out timeline translation tools for editors for many, many years now - in fact, any one who edits on multiple editing platforms knows very well what the Duck brings to the table. If you need to move your content back and forth between Avid, Final Cut Pro, After Effects, you know the nightmare that can be. And you also know by know the sanity-restoring qualities of Automatic Duck.
But at IBC 09, they're announcing something entirely new. While this new app follows the Duck's heritage of saving you from pulling out your hair or shoving your fist through your monitor, it's NOT about timeline translation. It's called ProDate DV! And what it does is allow editors to "simply and quickly display on screen the time and date information recorded by DV cameras." May sound simple, but anyone who's tried this knows it can't be done - and it's very frustrating. But ProDate DV solves that - true to Automatic Duck form - with a click of the mouse.
So Wes Plate, president of Automatic Duck, will be in his IBC 09 Stand #7.K21 showing off his latest sanity-saving app.
Stop by, say hi and check out something entirely new and different from the Duck.
