Automatic Duck is premiering its timeline integration software
Pro Import C3
during this week’s DV Expo East 2004 in New York City. The application translates Avid or Final Cut Pro editing timelines into Discreet’s combustion 3 compositing and visual effects package. It can handle both complex, multilayered shots and simple ones as it imports all user media into combustion 3, allowing you to edit in that application without going back to the source and re-exporting the material. Automatic Duck notes, however, that AAF import is not supported in the Mac version of Pro Import C3. Pricing is US$495.
