Extensive Video Device Support with Unrivaled Flexibility
Don't be tied to simple playback through your computer monitor. Video Slave also supports a range of Blackmagic Design devices including their DeckLink, UltraStudio and Intensity products.
Video Slave displays the video on all attached devices as well as the inbuilt player view at the same time and ensures that all the displays are in perfect sync. Also, if you're using a projector, Video Slave offers a handy projection delay compensation.
Customizable Movie Export
An essential part of any workflow is the ability to export movies for different scenarios. Ever needed to export a movie with an added piece of music for the director? Alternatively, export a video with your programmed visual cues to send to the scoring stage?
Now you can with Video Slave's flexible movie exporting features. Video Slave 4 offers you the flexibility to select output options of video and audio codec, include or remove audio tracks, and export range.
Overlays to transform your daily work
Video Slave provides flexible overlays, enabling the superimposition of all types of visual cues over the picture - useful in a whole range of scenarios. From simple on/off overlays for timecode or feet and frames to timed overlays for streamers, markers, and flutters. Timed overlays can be programmed directly within Video Slave, but also triggered directly from your DAW or other MIDI-compatible equipment such as a keyboard or trigger pads.
Professional audio capabilities
Video Slave will playback all audio tracks a movie contains with up to 8 channels per track. Additionally, you can create audio tracks and drag audio files to them the same way you can in your DAW. Video Slave will draw audio waveforms and offer all audio-related features you are used to on your workstation such as flexible output routing and standard audio controls such as solo, mute, volume and pan on an individual track basis.
Ease your workflow with timelines
No matter if you're working on a reel-based feature film, commercials or a whole season of a TV or web series, Video Slave's timeline feature has you covered!
A project in Video Slave can contain several timelines, and each timeline can hold several video and audio tracks. Use one movie per timeline or all reels of a film, use several video tracks in one timeline or only one and instead use separate timelines - whatever aids your workflow. Edit video and audio regions to easily insert a rendered scene or have one timeline for a reel-wise and another for a tied version of the same film for presentation purposes - all in the same project and with minimal effort.
