We believe very strongly in the Discreet edit* system" Rick Spurway, Spurway Film & TV

Proven Technology
edit* is developed by Discreet, the same company that brings Academy Award-winning technology to the major motion picture industry with flame* and inferno*.

Creative editing
edit* is ideal for online finishing and offline creative editing with a powerful toolset that can handle the most demanding jobs at the highest image quality.

Fast and flexible
The award-winning edit* interface has earned a reputation for being both easy to learn and the fastest desktop editor on the market. Use the mouse and keyboard in combination, or separately, for fast and accurate editing. Instantly access and edit shots with interactive timeline editing, customizable timeline views and frame-accurate trimming with slip and slide.

edit* delivers tools and shortcuts to accelerate the editorial process. The flexibility of the edit* interface and powerful editing tools allow artists to work in a mode that fits their style and projects. Powerful media management tools display clips in picon or text views and locate material quickly and easily.

Native 4.0 NT editor
edit* was designed from its inception for the Windows NT operating system and is a true native NT editor with multi-threading and multi-processor support. This architecture gives edit* exceptionally fast performance on both editorial functions and rendering speed. It also provides a truly open platform solution that is easily adaptable to a standard NT networking environment.

Concurrent real-time effects
edit* has set the NLE standard with concurrent real-time effects. Editors rarely have to stop the editorial process to render, ensuring that more work is done - faster - at the maximum resolutions required for each job. edit* supports up to two streams of uncompressed images with an uncompressed graphic track. Other options of edit* support two real-time streams of 235kb images with two real-time streams of uncompressed graphics. To take advantage of these multiple streams of video and graphics for advance compositing edit* features an extensive keyframe channel editor that delivers precise control of all effects parameters. Each option of edit* has a different level of effects tailored to the specific needs of an editor (See edit* options data sheet for effects listing).

Real-time video and audio tracks
edit* features 99 video tracks for advanced compositing and 500 editable and 48 real-time tracks of audio. Real-time audio tracks offer editors the option to work in stereo and avoid having to mix down at the 8-track limit of most other NLE systems. This, along with audio rubberbanding, direct VO to timeline and audio track grouping for mixing, enables the powerful audio tools in edit* to accelerate the most demanding projects.

Best image quality both compressed and uncompressed
edit* supports the ITU-R 601 broadcast standard with the best compressed images available on any NLE, from a single file 5Kb images for offline to full field 500Kb compressed images. You can also mix and match resolutions within the same job and program. New for our 4.5 release, edit* also supports uncompressed image quality offering the highest quality noncompressed images. edit* is also DTV-ready with full 16:9 image capture and playback, serial digital I/O, composite, component and S-VHS. With edit* you can mix resolutions on any project and work at whatever image quality fits your production criteria. From 5Kb single field images for offline to uncompressed image quality for online.

Extended effects toolset
edit* offers integration with Discreet's paint* and effect* software. All of the bin elements from edit* can be opened and accessed directly from paint* and effect*. These elements can then be manipulated and rendered directly back into any edit* bin or job. This gives edit* the extended capabilities for visual effects, such as motion tracking and true 3D compositing, not found on any other desktop NLE.

Unbeatable ROI
edit* offers an unbeatable combination of tools, performance, price and brand that enables our customers to secure high billing rates, and make money.

Customer-driven, innovative, award-winning
With edit*, Discreet brings the technology found in our Advanced Systems products to the desktop. Discreet has a proven track record of delivering stable and reliable systems to our customers. It has taken years to develop this stability with extensive feedback from our installed base of customers. You can feel confident that edit* is the most advanced and powerful NT NLE available today
