RTMac
Realtime editing power and professional productivity features for Apple Final Cut Pro

RTMac Demo
The RTMac/Final Cut Pro solution combines Apple’s award-winning editing software with Matrox’s realtime performance and productivity features to deliver a creative environment full of advanced tools typically reserved for expensive high-end editing systems.
Overview
More realtime effects than with just software alone
A Matrox RTMac in your Apple Power Mac G4 lets you work with three layers of video and graphics in real time, and instantly create more broadcast-quality effects than you could with just software alone.

On RTMac, push, swap, split and other slide transitions happen in real time. So do edge feathering and drop shadows on effects such as picture-in-picture. Matrox RTMac lets you do more complex effects and more simultaneous realtime operations such as realtime zoom with rotation. Built-in 3D technology and filtering make all your effects look good.

What’s more, you can use Matrox RTMac in almost any Power Mac G4 that Apple has ever sold. You get consistent realtime editing performance and full quality across the entire range of supported computers.

Professional productivity features
With a Matrox RTMac, you don’t have to limit yourself to using the Final Cut Pro Canvas window. Simply connect an NTSC or PAL broadcast video monitor to the Matrox RTMac breakout box to instantly view your work at full resolution, full quality, and full frame rate. WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) support lets you see your work from Adobe After Effects and Discreet Combustion on your video monitor too.

Matrox RTMac complements Apple FireWire support built into Power Mac G4 computers with analog video capture and output. Using the RTMac breakout box, you can digitize source material from analog devices to use in your DV editing projects and record your finished projects to videotape for distribution.


Dual-screen editing is an added benefit of Matrox RTMac. It supports a second computer monitor to increase your Final Cut Pro workspace.
