Pinnacle Systems, Inc., announced the immediate availability of CineWave 1.2, the newest version of the company's award-winning professional video creation solution. CineWave version 1.2 contains many new features including CineOffline, support for 16-bit YUV and 8-bit RGBA codecs, and HD qualification and support for Final Cut Pro 2 with most popular HD formats. CineOffline allows CineWave users to maximize costly storage space by using offline qualities to reduce the size of the media within a project. Even though a scaled down version of the footage is stored to disk, the user still edits with a full-size image through CineWave's real-time hardware scaling features. With CineOffline, users can conform or scale up the file to full resolution at uncompressed standard definition and/or high definition quality for finishing at anytime. Furthermore, CineOffline enables one to edit with CineWave on a computer that does not have the TARGA Cine Engine hardware. CineWave is available from Pinnacle Systems' dealers worldwide. CineWave 1.2 is a software upgrade for existing customers. Customers may download the upgrade at www.pinnaclesys.com/cinewavesupport.
