HaZ accepted an exciting commission by Synerscope to write, direct and produce a short viral fi lm to create awareness about Synerscope’s cutting edge technology for visualizing big data. Through the use of Fusion ioMemory PCIe solutions, he could streamline work from any location and execute real-time editing and visual effects manipulation.
HaZ accepted an exciting commission by Synerscope to write, direct and produce a short viral film to create awareness about Synerscope’s cutting edge technology for visualizing big data. The project’s quick turnaround, from script writing to final delivery, meant that HaZ needed real-time editing and visual effects capabilities that he could access from multiple locations to deliver dailies to Synerscope for review. HaZ told us, “I was using several formats, which needed caching constantly in editing and effects, and the work was slowing down when data was coming off the Macbook Pro internal hard drive.”
HaZ described the ioFX system and its benefits: “The new system runs Adobe Premiere Pro and Creative Cloud on a Fusion ioMemory ioFX card in a Thunderbolt expansion chassis connected to my laptop. This system allows me to be anywhere in the world and still have the same power and real-time speed required, almost like a portable post house on the move.”
Better still, it was very easy to implement. HaZ told us, “I didn’t need to adjust my current workflow or pipeline to use ioFX technology. I simply plugged it in, installed the VSL software, and configured Adobe Premiere Pro to use the ioFX card just like a hard drive. The performance was clearly evident during editing and doing visual effects on 2K pro-res 444 files.”
