Edit on your laptop, finish on Matrox RT.X Printer-friendly version (229 KB)
With Matrox RT.X, busy video editors can use a laptop computer to capture and edit video clips while on the road, and then later assemble their projects back in the studio. This tutorial explains how you can use Adobe Premiere on one computer as a stand-alone editing station without any dedicated Matrox hardware, and then port your project to an RT.X finishing station for realtime playback and addition of Matrox realtime effects, or export to MPEG-2 format for DVD authoring.
|1|| Acquire footage
We'll use the Adobe Premiere Pro editing station to capture our footage using a DV-1394 device and a compatible DV-1394 capture card. To configure Adobe Premiere Pro for DV acquisition, do the following:
Edit your project
Note For information on how to select which Adobe Premiere Pro transitions you'd like to play back in real time on your RT.X system, see the "Defining your Adobe Premiere Settings" chapter of your Matrox RT.X10 Suite User Guide Supplement.
|3||Import your project to the finishing station
When your project is complete, copy the Adobe Premiere Pro project file and all related media (video clips, graphics, titles, and audio clips) to your Matrox RT.X finishing station.
To load the completed project in Premiere Pro on Matrox RT.X, do the following:
|4|| Add realtime effects or export to MPEG-2
The imported project will now play back in real time. You can also add powerful realtime Matrox effects available on Matrox RT.X to your project, or export the project to MPEG-2 format for use with a DVD-authoring program.
