The guys who bought you PluralEyes have done the same for video as they have done for audio. We know the above video is about Vegas, but you will get the same functionality in FCP. A bad day to announce a product in the wake of the Supermeet news, so give the video a couple of minutes of your time.
Initially we were puzzled exactly what Presto did, that was until we watched the video and all the pain of editing slideshows on top of presenters came flooding back! This will be a real timesaver if you do a lot of this type of corporate work. Dare we say "Boom?"
Singular Software™, developer of workflow automation applications for digital media, is pleased to announce the public beta of Singular Software Presto™ for Final Cut Pro®. The Singular Software Presto application dramatically simplifies the creation of presentation videos. The application's sophisticated computer tracking and automation technology works alongside Final Cut Pro to automatically synchronize footage of the presenter, presentation slides, and a video taken of the screen – creating a polished video of the presentation in just minutes. "Singular Software Presto makes it fast and easy to go from raw recording to finished video. By using a number of layout templates, users can automatically create a customized professional presentation video, saving hours in the edit bay," says Bruce Sharpe, CEO, Singular Software.
How Does Singular Software Presto Work?
Users simply import video of the presenter, screen, and presentation slides into Final Cut Pro, and Singular Software Presto begins to work its magic. By automatically synchronizing the original slide images with video of the screen, Singular Software Presto creates a precisely timed slide track with bright slide images in place of the screen video. The application's innovative tracking technology automatically captures the presenter to place alongside the slides in appealing two-up layouts, and the resulting video can be used as is or customized with the provided templates and wizards. Export the slide track back into Final Cut Pro for rendering, and users have a finished presentation video that took just minutes to create.
