Digital Heaven releases Multicam Lite

Digital Heaven is pleased to announce that Multicam Lite, the first multicamera editing solution for Apple’s Final Cut Pro is now shipping. With its innovative and streamlined interface, Multicam Lite makes it easier than ever to cut up to three cameras in real time.

"Multicam Lite is thoughtfully designed for multi-angle cutting with a clean, minimal interface and instantaneous round trip with FCP. This software is a pleasure to use and I'm hooked!" - Loren S. Miller, NeoTron Design

Multicam Lite is a standalone Mac OS X application which works in conjunction with Final Cut Pro (v4.1 and later) for the input and output of sequences via XML files. DV, DVCPRO25 or OfflineRT source clips can be directly used by the software and there are comprehensive trimming and camera swapping features built in. When the cut is finished, the XML file is imported back into FCP where all the cuts are automatically recreated ready for further effects work or output.

Pricing and availability: The software is available now for download purchase from the Digital Heaven online store at for 295 USD. A demo version is also available which offers full functionality but does not allow saving of XML files.

As announced at MacExpo London, Multicam Lite's big brother, Multicam Pro, is currently in development. Multicam Pro will be able to use up to 20 cameras and has additional features to cater for the most demanding multicamera projects. Multicam Pro is expected to be shipping in Q1 2005.
