Avid|DS 4.0 Receives Praise From Beta Testers
The recently released Avid|DS Version 4.0 has received advance praise from the post-production facilities involved with testing the new system. The major new release has been hailed for its performance, feature improvements and timesaving capabilities. Among the most highly anticipated features in the new version is an optional remote processing capability that enables users to continue working on a project while computationally intensive tasks are being processed in the background, thereby avoiding interruptions to the creative process. This also allows companies to work on multiple projects simultaneously, maximizing productivity and generating additional revenue. Beta tester Tony Jover from the Sound and Picture House in Birmingham, UK, said that, "Avid|DS Version 4.0 speeds up the workflow immensely. Especially the new remote processing capabilities - you can set the process going in the background and continue with your edit. It's an incredible time-saver." Other new features and enhancements include expanded interoperability with other Avid and third party systems, new optimized effects trees, and support for SOFTIMAGE|XSI 3D animation software on the same system. The new version is available now from authorized Avid| DS resellers.
