Avid Media Composer 7™

Avid Media Composer has been the choice of professional editors for over 20 years. The Avid Media Composer family of software, including Avid Symphony and Avid NewsCutter, provides fully integrated support for Intensity. Capture and playback in full uncompressed quality, or directly in Avid DNxHD or other popular compressed video formats.

Adobe® Premiere Pro® CC

On Windows, Blackmagic's full resolution (1920 x 1080) professional quality compressed HD codec can capture JPEG AVI files in real time using Premiere Pro. Unlike HDV and DVCPRO HD which uses reduced resolution 1440 x 1080 video, Blackmagic's Online JPEG maintains the full resolution 1920 x 1080 resolution of HD video without the huge file size of uncompressed HD video. Blackmagic's Online JPEG is so efficient that full motion 1080i HD video can be recorded at only 12 MB per second vs. a massive 119 MB per second for uncompressed HD video.


After Effects® CC

Intensity even allows high end design and effects work, great for the special effects you've always wanted in Independent Films, use After Effects® CC, Combustion™, Photoshop® CC and more. Intensity also includes an RGB QuickTime™ preview output for After Effects and Fusion™. And, you can always preview on the video-out interactively as you design and then play pre-renders using real time ram preview. When rendering your project, processing quality using the Blackmagic codec is full 16 bit, so you always get the advantage of uncompressed video.


Photoshop® CC

Intensity includes special Photoshop plug-ins, so you can directly capture and output still frames from within Photoshop. Outputting Photoshop graphics from Intensity lets you see the correct color and the effects of video interlace and field movement. Intensity uses the correct video levels so you can't get illegal 100% RGB video levels eliminating, surprises when graphics are displayed!


Sony Vegas Pro

Sony Vegas Pro works seamlessly with Intensity Pro and Shuttle for an incredible SD and HD editing experience! Use powerful video effects and versatile audio editing tools while previewing your work in real time even with full HD projects! Capture up to 10 bit uncompressed so you can start with the best possible image quality for your Blu-ray Disc creation or Windows Media 9 content distribution.


Blackmagic Utilities Included!

Intensity also includes Blackmagic LiveKey and Blackmagic Disk Speed Test™. LiveKey lets you insert logos and other graphics in real time using SDI outputs. Disk Speed Test checks your disk array and gives you an easy to understand speed test with the results in video frames per second!


Disk Speed Test

Configuring a high speed disk array for high speed uncompressed high definition video is getting easier. Even SATA disks can be connected together for low cost arrays with amazing speed and capacity. Use Disk Speed Test (included free) to get a great real world indication of your disk array performance. Reported in a simple frames per second count, Disk Speed Test uses long sustained block transfers just like capturing and playing video, so it's more accurate than generic disk test utilities.
