Version 1.3 adds:
- Direct To Edit (DTE) Technology support for the Pinnacle Liquid Edition and other Pinnacle AVI-based applications.
- Control support for HDCAM, DVCProHD, Digital Betacam, Betacam SX, MPEG IMX, and DVCPro50 camcorders when combined with Miranda's camera-mounted DVC-100 and DVC-800 series converters. These camcorders are commonly used for broadcast news acquisition, professional sports analysis, television, and feature film production.
- Direct To Edit (DTE) Technology support for 24p QuickTime and 24p AVI Type 2 Direct To Edit clips (FS-3 only) when used with a camcorder such as a Canon XL2 or Panasonic AG-DVX-100. The addition of the new formats to DTE Technology increases the number of supported native NLE file formats to ten, therefore further extending DTE Technology as the leading and most comprehensive disk recording system. Pinnacle AVI, 24p QuickTime, and 24p AVI Type 2 join RawDV, AVI Type 1, AVI Type 2, Matrox AVI, Canopus AVI, QuickTime, and Avid OMF in the existing DTE Technology file format lineup.
