“Edit Bridge offers an innovative solution to allow competing manufacturers’ products to work together, providing the same connection into Avid Interplay for non-Adobe specific workflows, allowing content to be discoverable and editable in other applications,” confirms Chris Steele, managing director, Marquis Broadcast. “Users can search Avid Interplay from within a Marquis client window or from within a panel in the Adobe© Premiere Pro CC or After Effects interface, view thumbnails, find media and select for editing. Content can be dragged and dropped from the client window into other applications such as Grass Valley Edius or Apple Final Cut Pro X. Edit Bridge also enables content to be sent back from Adobe© Premiere Pro CC to Avid, ready for further editing by other applications as required.”
Edit Bridge which has been designed to support both Windows and Mac platforms was originally awarded the IABM's Design & Innovation Award in the Post Production category at the prestigious IABM awards ceremony held at IBC last year.
Steele continues: “In addition, we have also updated the user interface which means editors can now source content from Interplay by browsing and searching within the panel even more easily, before triggering a drag and drop import into the chosen application. Editors working with multi-vendor systems now have the power to browse, move and therefore edit content more easily. This is particularly relevant for production houses wishing to use Avid ISIS and Interplay PAM but a solution from a different vendor for editing or graphics. We are looking forward to demonstrating the full capabilities of Edit Bridge at IBC.”
