Posted May 4, 2011

Singular Software (, developer of workflow automation applications for digital media, is pleased to announce the release of its latest product, Singular Software PrestoTM for Final Cut Pro®. The Singular Software Presto application dramatically simplifies the creation of presentation videos. Working alongside Final Cut Pro, Singular Software Presto synchronizes, arranges, and edits the footage of the presenter, presentation slides, and video taken of the screen in just minutes. "Arranging all of the elements while creating a presentation video - from inserting the correct slides at a specific moment to framing the presenter - can be monotonous and time-consuming. Singular Software Presto saves users hours and makes it quick and easy to create polished, customized professional video presentations," says Bruce Sharpe, CEO, Singular Software.

About Singular Software Presto
The Singular Software Presto application utilizes sophisticated computer tracking and image-matching technology to simplify the entire editing process for creating presentation videos. Users need simply to import video of the presenter, screen, and presentation slides into Final Cut Pro, and Singular Software Presto will work its magic.

Singular Software Presto creates a precisely timed slide track with bright slide images in place of the screen video by automatically synchronizing the original slide images with video of the screen. The application's innovative tracking technology instinctively captures the presenter to place alongside the slides in appealing two-up layouts, and the resulting video can be used as is or customized with the provided templates and wizards. Export the slide track back into Final Cut Pro for rendering, and users have a finished presentation video that took just minutes to create.
