The media management tool Kyno has been updated and now supports the Blackmagic RAW format in v1.8. This means that video material recorded with Blackmagic cameras in BRAW can be played back or transcoded within Kyno, provided with metadata etc.
Also the integration with DaVinci Resolve, which is becoming more and more popular as an alternative for video editing, has been added - with a few clicks, clips prepared in Kyno including metadata (such as tags, ratings, descriptions, markers, subclips) can be imported into Resolve. Previously, this "send-to" option was only available for editing with Final Cut Pro X and Adobe Premiere Pro.
The Avid Media Composer is also supported by Kyno 1.8, alelrdings only in the more expensive Premium Edition. This is done via a newly added Avid Log Exchange (ALE) export. This way the metadata from the field view including subclips can be imported into the Composer. Markers of individual clips can also be copied over manually.
Other enhancements include an incremental transcoding workflow that works when editing entire file directories and recognizes files that have already been transcoded, and an automatic audio mapping during transcoding that correctly handles a wide range of possible combinations of input and output formats.
Furthermore, the creation of thumbnails on multicore systems should be much faster, as well as the batch analysis of large data sets, since the Preanalyze function now runs in the background on all available cores.
