AJA Teams with CineForm to Enable True Stereo 3D Output from Final Cut Pro, Premiere Pro Timelines

AJA Video Systems has collaborated with workflow solution developer CineForm to provide Apple Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere and other Mac and Windows-based NLE and effects software users with a variety of unique ways to output stereoscopic 3D material using the AJA KONA 3 video capture card through CineForm's Neo3D software.

CineForm's Neo3D software delivers a comprehensive 3D editorial workflow, enabling users to create 3D QuickTime or AVI files that include temporally-aligned left and right eyes and edit 3D projects in real time with full frame rate playback to an external 3D monitor. With expanded support for Neo3D software, AJA KONA 3 enables direct play-out of discrete left eye/right eye images and/or a muxed 3D image. After making the appropriate selection in the CineForm Neo3D software, users with 3D-capable LCD monitors or 3D projectors can view stereo content by configuring the KONA 3 for stereo output via the AJA Control Panel application.

AJA KONA 3 Mac software with support for CineForm Neo3D is planned for availability in May, with PC support coming Q3 2010, Both will be free downloads for all KONA 3 owners.
