Forscene, the professional video editing software, enables remote workflows because it is a true cloud-based platform. That bit I’m sure you’ve heard before, but I wanted to take a look at just how effectively this can save you time and money on your production.
Having the ability to log rushes whilst a production is still taking place means you can easily re-take that missing shot, or be sure you capture specific scenes from every camera angle. You’ll never have to worry about paying for additional days on location and can ensure that the production runs to budget. What’s also useful is that media can be logged (and edited) as live feeds are ingested directly from the camera into the cloud, which cuts down production time further. Winning!
Being able to work remotely with editors, directors and producers can be really valuable to your production, as you don’t need to hire out expensive edit suites for hours (or sometimes days) on end. With Forscene, remote collaboration is possible, as you can assign tasks to other users for review and approval of shots. Any member of the production crew can access an account, from anywhere in the world, so long as they have an Internet connection. But don’t panic that a logger can come into the project and start messing around with edits – the account manager assigns roles and access level. Ingenious!
Forscene on the go
They’ll be more about the updated Forscene iPad and Android tablet app in blog posts in the coming weeks, but I just wanted to touch upon how easy it is to log rushes and make rough cut edits with this tool. The app is an offline tool, so you can work in Forscene from literally any location, and as soon as you have Internet access it will sync with your account. It’s a free app to download and use so long as you have a Forscene license.
Lose the hardware. Go boxless.
That’s right; it’s now possible to go completely remote with our cloud-to-cloud workflow without the need for any of our hardware. Forscene integrates with deltatre and the Microsoft Azure™ cloud to provide a fully virtualised solution that is ideal for fast-paced productions like live sport broadcasts. And just in case you weren’t aware, we’ll be demoing this with our on-stand racing simulator at IBC this September. Follow this link to book your place and get a fast pass on to our stand!
