Timecode synchronized movie playback for your DAW
Use Video Slave 2 to play movie clips in sync with Pro Tools, Cubase, Nuendo, Logic Pro X, Studio One and many other popular DAWs. Video Slave 2 uses MIDI Timecode – a protocol supported by most Digital Audio Workstations on the market today – to drive synchronized movie playback as well as MIDI Machine Control for full scrubbing support.
Even better MIDI Timecode and MIDI Machine Control allow you to playback video from a separate computer using either a wired MIDI connectin or a network connection (ethernet or Wi-Fi).
The MIDI data can run from the same machine that’s also running your DAW but also from another machine on the local network. Both settings are common and well supported by Video Slave 2.
Video Slave 2 set-up takes a matter of minutes and soon you’ll be playing back high quality video in tight sync with your DAW. Composers, music producers, post production engineers and many other professionals use Video Slave 2 as part of their daily workflow.
Playback a wide range of video codecs and containers
Video Slave 2 supports all of the codecs used today such as DV/DVCPRO, Motion JPEG, Apple Pro Res, H.264, AVC Intra and many more. There’s typically no need to convert movie files to a different format which will save you a lot of time.
The supported container types include QuickTime as well as MXF. (operational patterns Op1a and Op-Atom, Pro version only).
Future proof video playback engine for Mac OS X
Video Slave 2 features a custom designed video playback engine built to fit the needs of audio/video professionals. Unlike other solutions, Video Slave 2 does not rely on the QuickTime engine any longer as QuickTime has been officially deprecated with OS X 10.8 and is likely to disappear in a future update of OS X.
With Video Slave 2’s playback engine, you can not only playback all audio tracks the movie contains directly without importing, you can also reference external audio files to have them play back in sync with the movie as well. Enjoy the freedom of routing each audio track to an individual output available to your machine and use standard audio controls like mute, volume and pan on a per audio track basis.
OS X 10.8 or higher.
