Quickly following the release of Apple’s Final Cut Pro X, PowerProduction Software announced the release of a new version of the popular post-visualization plug-in for FCP.
Martini QuickShot 2 is the sequel of the first plug-in for post-production visualization that makes it easy for editors to direct additional shots and sequences. With Martini 2's dynamic power, editors no longer need to use black slugs with text explaining what “shot goes here” and now this power is available for Final Cut Pro X.
Loaded with hundreds of classic and unique shot styles, Martini 2 s easy-to-use 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.
“With new compatibility for Final Cut Pro X, we’re excited to be allowing even more directors and editors to visualize their final product, quickly and effectively, without having to leave their editing environment,” said Paul Clatworthy, CTO, PowerProduction Software. “We know that when projects go from concept to production and on to post that there may still be missing pieces that need to be included to perfect the project. Perfectly integrated with the new editor, Martini 2 reduces the time it takes to conceive and generate new shots and sequences and allows for a seamless work-flow and a better end result.”
“Martini 2 is perfect because when I haven’t shot everything this allows me to see what I want to shoot next.” noted Roger Christiansen, film and television director “It’s very cool and very easy to use.”
Martini QuickShot 2 is compatible with all PowerProduction Software products, including StoryBoard Quick and StoryBoard Artist.
