The Mac update for Raylight has now been released. This is the program I cut my teeth on Cocoa with. DVFilm is all about improving the workflow of post production video editing. I worked on adding MXF support to Raylight. MXF stands for “Media Exchange Format” which is a popular format used by cameras including the Panasonic HVX200 hand-held, high-definition camera. The camera uses P2 Cards to store video. P2 cards are solid state flash memory packaged as PCMCIA cards. Raylight is actually a set of tools that includes a decoder and plugins for video editing software such as Final Cut Pro for Mac and Sony Vegas & Adobe Premier on the Mac.
Our website describes it his way:
- Raylight for Mac puts MXF files from the P2 Card straight into Final Cut Pro!
- It allows instant, direct editing of MXF files in FCP, or any video application on the Mac.
- It turns the Quicktime Player and FCP into a P2 Card Viewer.
- View Metadata in the first or second frame of every clip Automatically name and organize clips based on Metadata.
- New with 2.0: Export Quicktimes from FCP and make a P2 Card!
- It allows instant, direct editing of MXF files in FCP, or any video application on the Mac
