  • Added the ability to offset audio and video playback on systems that support Direct Sound
  • Enhanced the video export on DigiSuite systems so that you can now export files that are smaller or larger than normal (NTSC / PAL resolution) sizes without having to render down to a single DigiSuite file first.

    Speed Razor 5.51 brings exceptional MPEG capabilities which result in a much higher quality MPEG than what is ordinarily delivered in editing applications with features like customizable frame rate, 20 pass variable bit rate encodes, manual VBR, Constant Quality, Real-Time constant Bit rate, and Real-Time CQ encoding and much more.

    In-sync has rewritten the EDL import and export module to include a new in-sync EDL importer / exporter as well as support for importing and exporting AVID EDLs. In addition Batch capture now auto generates an in-sync EDL to ensure that your project is always safeguarded.

    Other features include faster saving projects, Audio True Scrub, precise VU Meters, support for Type 1 and Type 2 Audio for DV, and an updated Druid system diagnostic utility. Speed Razor 5.51 projects are fully compatible with Speed Razor HD 2.0 and Blade 2.1, which provide for cross platform support so production companies can supply shows in any format for their customers.
