Quantel Makes AAF Metadata Available for eQ and iQ
Quantel Has Added New AAF Tools to Sstreamline the Process of Moving Metadata from Avid Systems to its Own eQ and iQ Post and DI Systems
By Bryant Frazer / Jan 9, 2007
Quantel is now offering new Advanced Authoring Format (AAF) offline-to-online interchange tools to streamline the process of moving related metadata from Avid Xpress Pro and Avid Media Composer Adrenaline NLE systems to its own eQ and iQ Post and DI systems. Helping to simplify on-line sessions, users of both the eQ and iQ can now directly import AAF V1.1 metadata created during the offline process.
The new metadata set includes segment names, effects transitions, complex effects descriptors, audio splits and fades, time-stretch commands, layer event timings and layer priority data. Existing eQ and iQ tools like Reel Lock and Resolution Co-existence allow lo-res offline images to sync on the fly to the online conform, making last-minute checking easy.
All eQ and iQ V3.5 users can get these new tools free of charge and the full toolset has been added to the new Quantel Pablo color-grading suite.
