Final Print provides a useful workflow enhancement when handing off a project to other members of the post production team. Notes of shots to be worked on are made directly in Final Cut Pro as markers and exported to an XML file. Final Print opens the XML and displays a list of clip and sequence markers along with name, comment, timecode and thumbnail image. The list can be printed or saved as a PDF file.
Column layouts can be customized and saved as a template for recall at a later date. In addition, the colour of the printed header can be changed and a company or production logo shown at the top of every page.
Final Print for Mac OS X is available for immediate purchase from the Digital Heaven online store for US$99. A demo version that prints the first five markers found in a sequence is available for download from the Digital Heaven site at www.digital-heaven.co.uk.
