A Complete Editing and Finishing System for Independent Film
The 2k and 4k digital film process has been a tough hurdle for
many independant film makers. Hardware and software requirements
for processing this footage is expensive and time consuming both to
learn and to use.
Ant packs all the features necessary to professionaly
finish digital film work originating from 4K Red Camera files or
industry files such as DPX, Cineon, OpenEXR, or any of 20 other formats
supported by the system.
Let the Ant do the heavy lifting for your Production Pipeline
Handling 4K data from any source whether its Red Camera files, or DPX
sequences is a strain on any pipeline. The IFX Ant makes full use of the
GPU to accelerate editing, color correction, rendering and, of course,
A Simple Red Camera Workflow
The Ant keeps projects simple by letting you work on the
native R3D files and even more importantly by not requiring
any intermediate rendering.
