[JIM] About live:cut v.5.5

Major Change since Version 3.0

Starting with Version 3.0, live:cut is completely integrated into Just Control. There is no separate application any more, instead, you may start a live:cut project directly from within Just Control. To create a new live:cut project, open the menu File → Create live:cut project to switch to the live:cut interface.

  • live:cut enables a multicamera workflow for up to 16 cameras, reducing production time by eliminating time-consuming steps.

  • live:cut centralises ingest, metadata logging, and take handling.

  • live:cut records an EDL (“Edit Decision List”) based on trigger information from a hardware or software switcher. This EDL is then converted to a multicamera sequence to be imported and used in your NLE of choice (see Supported NLEs below).

  • live:cut currently works natively with Apple Final Cut Pro and Adobe Premiere Pro. The generated FCPXML 1.10 description file can also be imported and edited with DaVinci Resolve v.18.x.

  • Trimming, re-editing and slip & slide operations are available a few seconds after the recording has finished.

Setting up your live:cut System

A live:cut system consists of two main components

  • The Just In Engine application for the native SDI-based video ingest process.

  • The Just Control application to control the native ingest process and handle the EDL-to-XML generation.

Single or Multi-System Setups

  • Single System Setup: Just In Engine and Just Control run on the same machine. This is good for simple setups where the number of video streams is low.

  • Multi-System Setup: Just In Engine and Just Control run on different machines. Editing on the machine running Just Control is still possible. This is good for setups with many video streams.
