During the recording of an event with a multicam system, Live2Edit captures the control signals from the video switcher (production truck, studio, mobile control desk) and the corresponding timecode. Immediately after the end of the recording it generates an edit sequence for a post-production system; all the camera feeds are grouped in the sequence (optionally with PGM) and all edits and transitions* of the live mix are available for immediate processing – as though the sequence had been created directly in the composer by a cutter.
If required, markings (for highlights, corrections, etc.) can be entered by the director, programme manager or producer at any point using marker buttons. These then appear in the timeline of the post-production system as (coloured) markers.
In January 2021, we added some functions to Live2Edit that our customers wanted:
Live2Edit is compatible with AVID MEDIA COMPOSER™ and ADOBE PREMIERE™ PRO CC.
* Transition type depends on the respective system.
Live2Edit has 8 different coloured markers: 4 hardware and 4 software markers.
The 4 hardware markers can be inserted at any point in the production set (singly or in combination).
The 4 software markers are controlled using the Live2Edit software. If the hardware markers are not used, all 8 markers can be controlled by the software.
After the recording, the marker points can be accessed directly in the timeline and the corrections made immediately. It's no longer necessary to note down time codes during the live event and to waste time searching for the errors.
The assistant director or programme manager uses software markers 5 - 8 to tag the start of
In this case, markers 1-4 are only enabled for the marker buttons - to prevent director's or programme manager's markers accidentally being set via the software
Our innovative Live2Editsystem is now also available in a rental version. This allows you to benefit from all the advantages (your live multicam stream in the timeline = considerably shorter post-production time = cost savings), but does away with the need to hire an operator from us. You can simply use the system yourself: Live2Edit is therefore even cheaper than before.
