Codemill Launches Cloud-Based Video Editor

Codemill’s cloud-based video editing tool, Accurate.Video Edit is specifically designed for Content Supply Chain workflows. It enables users to work efficiently in the browser to perform essential edits.

Simon Bergmark, Product Owner at Codemill, commented: “With video production and media workflows increasingly moving to the cloud, editing has until now remained a cumbersome process, often requiring content to be downloaded, taking time and incurring data egress charges. Accurate.Video Edit enables essential edits, while keeping video content in the cloud throughout that process.”

Accurate.Video Edit is presented as a fast way to make edits needed for content compliance, content localisation, versioning for different platforms, and segmentation for promo and marketing teams. This includes a claimed unique ability to efficiently remove unwanted elements, such as colour bars, slates, black frames and other inappropriate content. Users can also create subclips, instantly add definable black frames between clips if required and render these to their location of choice at broadcast quality, ready to use for promotional material.

The software offers frame-accurate video and audio playback, using proxies when needed. Accurate.Video Edit enables thumbnails while scrubbing to quickly find the scenes required, with extensive keyboard shortcuts for simple playback and edit functions.

Users can visualize time coded metadata in the source timeline, select markers and create segments from the selection (e.g. highlights, scenes, annotations), or excluding the selection (e.g. black frames, explicit content, intro, end credits).

Its timeline includes interactive segments, and support for drag and drop. Users can insert and overwrite timeline operational modes, snap to the closest segment, split segments, as well as undo and redo.

An export and render option comes with configurable presets, to broadcast quality formats, including ProRes, MXF and high quality MP4, using scalable cloud transcoding. Users can export video and audio, and segments as individual files (subclips) to the location of their choice.
