SpeedEdit 2 works natively with XDCAM HD, XDCAM EX, QuickTime and AC3 Audio for realtime editing. The software also transcodes additional formats, including selected types of AVCHD.

Sub-projects now provide the ability to use all of the control tree settings for realtime sizing, rotation and overlay functions on groups of clips as if they were a single video clip. The new release also offers improved slow motion, with options for interpolated smoothing or enhanced sharpness.

For animators, image sequences are displayed as clips in realtime, with support extended to JPEG, BMP, PNG, Targa and TIFF files. The release extends realtime preview and playback with support for Blackmagic and other compatible external video devices.

The current SpeedEdit is available for $495, and purchases made now through the release of SpeedEdit 2 in Q4 will include a free upgrade. SpeedEdit 2 will be priced at $995, with an upgrade price of $295 for existing SpeedEdit and VT[5] owners.
